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.
HOT ARTICHOKE DIP
14 oz can quartered ARTICHOKE HEARTS
1 1/2 cup MAYONNAISE
3 oz CREAM CHEESE
1 cup shredded PEPPER JACK CHEESE
1 cup freshly grated PARMESAN CHEESE
2 cloves minced GARLIC
1 tsp LEMON PEPPER
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.
