Spinach and Artichoke Dip

I have yet to meet a single person on this planet that does not enjoy spinach and artichoke dip. Seriously. It's the one party food that's always devoured and the appetizer ordered when out for dinner. Tell me you don't like spinach and artichoke dip. I dare you.

OK, I'm sure there's a few of you out there that don't like it (communists). But, that's fine, you can still hang out with the cool kids.

I like this version because the sour cream adds a little bit of tang, it's not the flat mayo flavor that I get some places. Blech. This dip is not on Low-Fat's Christmas Card list. This dip has never even heard of Low-Fat. This dip could kick Low-Fat's ass.

Which is too bad, because it's mad tasty.

So, for the only time this decade (because that's only how often my ass can handle foods this fattening), I present to you...

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

4 oz sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup cubed mozzarella cheese
1-2 teaspoon minced garlic
9 oz package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed of its juices
14 oz artichoke hearts, chopped

Combine all in baking dish and bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy with crackers, chips, veggies, fingers, or by dipping your entire face in the bowl and lapping at it with your tongue. You're your own person. It's up to you.

I'm not allowed to make a good hot spinach dip (like this one!) at home because I will sit myself on the couch with a bag of corn chips and consume the entire crock. Then I gain 20lbs.

I love spinach and artichoke dip and have to be restrained away from it. This one's dangerous!
