This has to one of my very favorite recipes! This is an awesome appetizer for parties or in my case, I can make a meal out of it. My friend Sarah introduced this to me and how she makes it is excellent, but I made some very small changes which you will see. I hope you enjoy this as much as me and my friends do. Happy New Year.
1 stick of butter
1 med onion chopped
20 ozs of frozen spinach chopped, thawed and drained well (I use about 15 ozs)
1 14oz can of artichoke hearts drained and chopped(I use about 1/2 to 3/4 of the can)
8 oz of cream cheese
8 oz of sour cream
1 cup of monterey jack cheese shredded
1 cup of parm. cheese shredded
3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese shredded (this is something I added. Not in the original recipe)
1 tsp to 2 TB Tabasco sauce (start with the smaller amount and taste, add more if you want more)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Melt butter in a large pot, add onions and cook until tender. Stir in spinach, cream cheese, sour cream, Tabasco sauce, salt, pepper, 3/4 cup of monterey jack, 3/4 cup parm, and 1/2 cup mozzarella. Heat until all cheese is melted. Pour into a 1 qt. baking dish, top with remaining cheese, and bake at 350 just until cheese is beginning to brown. This usually takes about 15-20 mins.
Serve this with your favorite chips or bread and enjoy!
