I bow to the Costco artichoke Gods~ they make me fat and happy!~!!! To top it all off, they sell this amazing bread called Rosemary and Olive Oil....heat it up in the oven to warm it and heat the dip...together~ it's orgasmic..i kid you not.
Next time you are at Costco, I beg you....grab the dip in the refrigerated back bins and the bread from the bakery section. You will NOT be disappointed. I will no longer make artichoke dip...this is my new mantra.
Now prior to this...the best dip recipe I had found for artichoke dip is actually an artichoke and spinach dip. I have rec'd rave reviews on it at many a potlucks and family get-togethers. However, it is pretty pricey to make and takes a little time. Very good though. I am posting the recipe below so you can try it too :)
2 cloves garlic - minced
Notes: Serve with tortilla chips for dipping
