Recipe of the Week: Artichoke Dip

On Christmas Day, my Mom mentioned that she wished she had my Grandma Virginia’s artichoke dip recipe – a favorite that she loved to make. I am not sure if this is her exact recipe, but it looks like a great New Year’s Eve appetizer.




"This dip is good hot, cold, or room temperature. Serve it with tortilla chips or pita wedges and be sure to get your taste, because it doesn't last long at a party!"


1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
Sliced green onions - garnish
Chopped Tomatoes - garnish


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Combine the artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, cheese and green chilies. Mix well and pour into a 2 quart casserole dish.

3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Garnish with chopped green onions and chopped tomato if desired.
