    This one is my “go to”. I use fresh, steamed artichokes, and I add lemon and red pepper flakes. Everyone loves it!!

    I have made and served this artichoke dip at my get togethers and it is a big hit. I also found by baking it in the oven at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes is good. I have also put it in z crock pot to keep it warm and serve it with Triscut crackers. Never have any leftovers.


  • Lindsay
