Baked Artichoke Dip

We love artichokes! When we all get together, this is the appetizer we most often make as it is easy and it doesn’t require many ingredients.

Canned artichokes, mayonnaise, and green chiles combine together and are then topped with cheddar cheese and baked until the cheese is nice and bubbly. YUM! There’s just one catch….We use Hellmann’s Mayonnaise….no exceptions! Hellmann’s tastes most like homemade mayonnaise and Mom has always uses Hellmann’s….no Kraft Mayonnaise….and don’t even get us started on Miracle Whip! The green chiles give the dip a little kick….if you’d like a bigger kick, dice up some pickled jalapenos and add them to the mixture.

Ingredients:

2 cans Artichoke Hearts, quartered
1 cup HELLMANN’S Mayonnaise
1 small can green chiles
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Crackers or Tortilla Chips

Drain cans of artichoke hearts and empty artichokes into a medium baking dish. With your hands, break up the hearts by pulling the leaves apart.

Top with green chiles.

Incorporate the green chiles and artichoke mixture well.

Measure one cup of mayonnaise.

Add mayonnaise to the artichoke mixture and combine.

Shred your cheddar cheese. This is my favorite part as I love freshly grated cheese and have to eat some as I grate it….and then some more….so I grate some more….

Top casserole with shredded cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven until hot and bubbly.

Serve with crackers (we like Wheat Thins) and tortilla chips.

Enjoy!
