Spinach Artichoke Dip

Snack recipes for football

Unlimited chips and dip with spinach artichoke dip can be very dangerous, so why not make it somewhat guilt free?  I mean, it has 2 vegetables in the name so it “should” be healthy for you, right?  Unfortunately regular spinach artichoke dip is far from healthy. Lucky for you, I bit the bullet and tried out a bunch of recipes to get the one that I think taste pretty darn close to the kind you get out at restaurants, only with a fraction of the calories and guilt!  It is great as a dip, sandwiches spread or even a pizza sauce base with chicken ( mind blown!).
