Full Answer

To make a flavorful three-cheese artichoke dip, beat 8 ounces of softened cream cheese in a large bowl. Continue beating after adding 2 cups mayonnaise until the mixture is smooth. Next, add a 14-ounce can of drained and chopped artichoke hearts, 2 thinly sliced green onions, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1 cup shredded mozzarella, a dash of hot sauce, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the mixture into a pie plate, and bake it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until the top is golden.

To vary the taste, try adding spinach to your artichoke dip. Mix 2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese, a 10- ounce package of frozen chopped spinach thawed and a 14-ounce can of drained and chopped artichoke hearts. In a separate bowl, combine 2/3 cup sour cream, 1 cup softened cream cheese, 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons minced garlic. Mix these ingredients with the spinach and artichokes, and bake for 20 to 30 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
