This dip often shows up at family gathering. It's one of my Grandma Eve's go-to dips and for very good reason. It's insanely easy to make and uses minimal ingredients. And of course it tastes so delicious with tortilla chips. So the Easiest Ever title truly fits here!
This Hot Artichoke Dip is also an excellent alternative to Spinach and Artichoke dip, since it doesn't include spinach. Don't get me wrong, I love spinach. But it's nice to have something different once in a while, especially if you have family or friends who don't like spinach.
I love that there's a little bit of lemon to brighten up the entire dip. Garlic powder and plenty of grated Romano or Parmesan cheese add the most delicious and savory flavors. The original recipe calls for 2 bags of frozen artichoke hearts but if those aren't available near you, you can always substitute with five 14.5 oz. cans of artichokes. I learned with my Grandma's Baked Artichoke Hearts (my other Grandma wrote that recipe- Rosie) that frozen artichokes aren't too widely available, which is such a bummer.
I also love that you can assemble this in advance in an 8 or 9 inch pan and then bake it just before serving. It's helpful to have a food processor to quickly chop up the artichoke hearts but I prefer to use my mini prep processor. We usually serve it with tortilla chips but I bet it would be fantastic with pita chips too (like my Everything Pita Chips!). It also reheats really well in the microwave or oven.
So the next time you need a dish to pass, give this Hot Artichoke Dip a try. It's a great option for the holidays and fits perfectly into your game day celebrations as well.
