Cookin’ Greens Chopped Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Serves 6-10  


1 cup (240 ml) low fat mayonnaise
¾ cup (180 mL) low fat cream cheese, softened
2 cups (480 mL) shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp (5 ml) dried oregano
¼ tsp (2 ml) cayenne pepper
¼ tsp (2 mL) sea salt
1/8 tsp (1 ml) black pepper
1 cup (240 ml) Cookin’ Greens Artichoke Heart quarters, cooked according to package directions, drained and cooled
2 cups (480 ml) Cookin’ Greens Chopped Spinach, cooked according to package directions, drained and cooled


Combine mayonnaise, cheeses, oregano, cayenne, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until thoroughly combined.
Transfer cheese mixture to a large bowl; add cooked and chilled Cookin’ Greens Artichoke Heart Quarters and Chopped Spinach. Mix to combine.
Divide mixture evenly into 4 medium or 1 large microwave/oven-safe ramekin(s).
Bake each ramekin in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until bubbling OR heat covered in microwave for 1-2 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Serve immediately with pita crisps, tortilla chips or your favourite crackers.

Chef’s Tip: Replace the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses with the same amount of shredded Italian cheese blend.
