Hot Artichoke Dip 101
Appetizers don’t have to be complicated to be good. We’re admittedly a little obsessed with appetizers because they can be a one-size fits all for any occasion.
What is hot artichoke dip made of? Like we said before, apps don’t have to be complicated. This recipe is made with artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, Parmesan and garlic. Simple. Flavorful. Amazing!
How do you prepare an artichoke? The part we need for this recipe is the artichoke heart, which is the bottom. Pull off the outer “petals” and scoop out the fuzzy layer to reveal the heart. You can also always use a can of artichokes if you want a bit less fuss.
How healthy are artichokes? Low in fat (and calories), high in fiber and vitamins, artichoke are considered to be one of the most antioxidant-rich vegetables.
How to store your dip: Always refrigerate any leftover dip. Reheat in the oven to refresh its hot deliciousness.
Options for artichoke petals
So there is more than just the artichoke hearts. Bonus, you also can eat the “meat” from the petals, dipping them into hot butter and using your teeth to squeeze or scrape the good stuff out.
If you want to get fancy, butter isn’t your only option.
Honey mustard, mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar, sriracha sauce, or even butter and lemon are all tasty ways to enjoy the rest of your artichoke.
Additional flavors to your dip
There are a few simple options to add some flavor to your dip, if you so choose.
Bacon is one of our go-to add-ins for dips, a little salty protein goes a long way. There’s also jalapenos for a little heat, green chiles, goat cheese, mozzarella, feta (or really any cheese!)
You can also switch up your seasoning a little. We do recommend trying this with a little bit of your dip rather than the whole batch, to season to taste. For example, we have a favorite apple wood rub that we often use on pork or chicken. A little bit mixed into our hot artichoke dip is heavenly.
What to serve hot artichoke dip with
We like to serve our dip with crispy, salty pita chips, but there are some other yummi options!
- Raw vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, celery, etc.
