Spinach & Artichoke Dip

This is one of my favorite appetizers.  You can serve it with tortilla chips like they do in a restaurant.  But my preferred way is to slice a baguette and lay them on a cookie sheet.  Brush each slice with a little extra virgin olive oil and toast in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5 to 10 minutes.



Spinach & Artichoke Dip

1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp garlic salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp chili powder, or to taste
1/2 cup parmesan, grated
3/4 cup mozzarella, divided
1 small box frozen spinach, thawed
1 jar artichoke hearts, drained & chopped

Directions
In a medium bowl blend cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic salt and chili powder.
Stir in parmesan and 1/2 cup mozzarella
Remove thawed spinach from box and squeeze out excess water using paper towels.
Fold in spinach and chopped artichoke hearts.
Pour mixture into a small oven safe dish
Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until hot and bubbly
