I adore spinach! Okay, okay I will fess up and admit that I only adore spinach if it is surrounded by warm, goey cheese and wonderful spices. This spinach and artichoke dip has been part of my treasured recipe chest for as long as I can remember. It can be easily doubled, is forgiving if you play around with the spices, cheese or hot sauce and draws friends to it. Whether you serve it with chips, pita or tortilla chips, breadsticks…I promise you won’t have any leftovers. Oh wait, what am I thinking, that is a BAD thing!
