Hot Artichoke Dip

I can't believe its been so long since I posted to my blog.......but, summer is over and I'm back.

Tomorrow our family will be celebrating my grandson and granddaughters birthdays.  I offered to bake cookies and also make an artichoke dip.  I didn't really have a recipe, so I did a little research and combined ingredients from about 5 different recipes that I found and came up with my own version.  The pepper jack cheese is totally my own addition to this recipe.  I found recipes using lots of different cheeses, but non with pepper jack cheese.  I must say its very YUMMY!!!  I will serve it with Wheat Thins and Triscut crackers.


14 oz can quartered ARTICHOKE HEARTS
1 1/2 cup MAYONNAISE
1 cup shredded PEPPER JACK CHEESE
1 cup freshly grated PARMESAN CHEESE
2 cloves minced GARLIC

Drain the artichoke hearts well.  Place them in a small mixing bowl and cut them up using a knife and fork.  Just keep slicing until you have no big chunks of artichoke.  Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.  Pour into a baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.  Serve hot with crackers.
