Quick and Easy Artichoke Dip
Have canned artichokes, mayonnaise, and Parm? That’s all you need for this quick and easy artichoke dip. Add some salt and pepper if you want.
Dress it up with some minced garlic, or chopped green chiles or jalapeños. You can also try adding dill, lemon juice, sliced green onions, or sour cream, or even a little brown sugar.
Mix everything together and either bake it in the microwave for 5 minutes or in the oven for 20. Couldn’t be easier!

- 2 14-ounce cans of artichokes, drained (water-packed, not oil!)
- 8-ounces Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (about 2 cups)
- 1 cup of mayonaise
- Salt and pepper
1 Coarsely chop the drained artichokes.
2 In an oven or microwave-proof baking or serving dish, mix together the chopped drained artichokes, the grated Parmesan cheese, and the mayonnaise.
3 Microwave on high heat for 5 minutes or bake in a 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes. If microwaving, pause occasionally to stir so that the dip gets evenly heated.
Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Serve with crackers, endive leaves, or toasted thinly slice bread or baguettes.
