Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

This recipe sort of speaks for itself. It's spinach artichoke dip, I mean, who doesn't love it? It's my most requested appetizer for parties and movie nights. It's spectacular.

Once you try this you'll never go back to store bought again.

Seriously, I could eat this stuff with a spoon (and occasionally I do). But it's great to have with tortilla chips or my personal favorite, a loaf of homemade french bread. Yes, the whole loaf...don't question me.

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip
a Gemma Louise Original Recipe

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
¾ cup sour cream
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded mozzarella
½ cup shredded parmesan, divided
10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed
15 oz. canned artichokes, drained and chopped
½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp. hot sauce
¼ tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

 Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add in sour cream and mayo and beat until combined. Stir in mozzarella and ¼ cup of parmesan.

Wring out spinach in a towel until mostly dry. Add spinach and artichokes to creamed mixture. Season with Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Spread into a shallow gratin dish and even out with a spatula or wooden spoon.

Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup of parmesan and bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes until slightly brown around the edges. Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.
