Superbowl Sunday: Spinach Artichoke Dip

Sunday, February 6, 2011

Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone!
I have to admit, I'm not a pro-football fan, so I really don't care who wins.
The hubs and I are getting together with a group of people from his shop to watch the game, and I didn't want to show up to the shin-dig empty handed. So I decided to make Spinach Artichoke Dip. A great thing about this dip is that it can be made in advance, and just kept in the fridge until your ready to throw it in the oven (that's what I've done).

9 oz artichoke hearts
9 oz frozen spinach
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese\
1/4 cup part skim ricotta cheese
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese
2 tbsp lowfat mayo
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 dashes Tabasco sauce (I was a bit generous with this)

Defrost spinach and dry.
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all ingredients EXCEPT Parm. cheese into a food processor.
Pulse or blend until mostly smooth, but leave some chunks for texture.
Pour mixture into casserole dish. Sprinkle top with Parm. cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes, until it just starts bubbling.
Remove and let cool for 10 minutes. 

Enjoy! I hope everyone has a great time watching the game, I'll have to find some way to entertain myself :)
