The Pioneer Woman's Artichoke Dip

I got The Pioneer Woman Cooks for my birthday and I have been slowly cooking my way through it.

I came across this beauty when I made it for a friend's baby shower. It was an instant hit and I seriously could have taken Ree's {that's TPW's name, folks. We're on a first name basis here.} words to heart:

"...serve with blue tortilla chips. Or button mushrooms. Or a spoon."
No lie, I could have spooned that delicious dip right into my mouth. Yum.

Anyway, I've promised many people I would post the recipe so here it is:

Warmed Artichoke Dip 
by The Pioneer Woman
1 8oz block of cream cheese {i used light cream cheese and it made no difference to me}
1 cup of real mayonnaise {again, we only have the light variety of mayo in our house}
2 cans of artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup of Parmesan cheese {use the good stuff, you won't regret it}
 2 green onions, chopped
cayenne pepper, black pepper & salt, all to taste

So combine the cream cheese, mayo and 1 of the cans of artichoke hearts.
Add in the cayenne pepper {i am a fan of heat, but be considerate of your guests} and then the green onions.
Blend it all up in a food processor or use an immersion blender like i did.
Next roughly chop up the artichokes and add into the dip along with the Parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste and then throw it all in an oven-safe dish.
Heat at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes and enjoy while hot.

And I've really enjoyed it with the blue tortilla chips but button mushrooms or a spoon would go just as well.



  1. may try this for a superbowl or Oscar party... so many things to celebrate comin' up!

  2. This was amazing!! Some would taste good right now!! We missed you being at "American Christmas" to see how much we enjoyed it!

  3. So the muffins are in the oven! And I can still taste that Artichoke dip! We need to have a party just as an excuse to have some... but enough people so we don't eat it all just the two of us!

  4. Jen R's birthday is coming up... maybe I should throw her a party and see if you'll make this Vaness... hmm...


I love hearing from you!
