“Diet busting” Decadent Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This dip is best reserved for a once in a while treat.  It’s very good, but certainly makes no pretenses about being healthy beyond containing spinach and artichokes.


  • 1 Cup Chopped Spinach
  • 1 1/2 Cups Artichoke Hearts
  • 6 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Miracle Whip or Mayo
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Handful Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese


  1. If using frozen spinach and/or artichokes, boil them in water until tender. Drain, pressing out excess water.
  2. Chop the artichokes up into as fine as chunks as you want.
  3. Heat the cream cheese for a minute in the microwave.
  4. Mix everything together, sprinkling the monterey jack on top.
  5. Either bake in a 350 degree oven until nice and melted or microwave until hot.

Serve with pita chips or slices of french bread and enjoy!
