What's Cookin' Wednesdays- Spinach & Artichoke Dip...

I'm a huge fan of both my mini crock-pot and Gator Football, not to mention a complete sucker for a good dip. So for last Saturday's game I threw together this Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip. It's super simple and super tasty!

What you'll need:
1 block of cream cheese (I opted for the 1/3 fat but I wouldn't recommend using the fat free. It just doesn't melt the same)
Pinch of salt, pepper, and ground nutmeg
2 cloves of grated garlic (I love garlic but if you're not a huge fan, I would recommend using only one or none at all if you prefer)
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1 package of thawed and squeezed dry chopped spinach
1 can of artichoke hearts, chopped into bite size pieces

Simply mix together all of the ingredients and then transfer into your mini crock-pot. Heat on low until melted and creamy, this will take about an hour.

Enjoy with tortilla chips! This dip is perfect for a game time snack because if you're anything like us here in the Halquist house, we graze. It'll stay warm and melty in the crock-pot throughout the entire game.

What do you have cookin' in your house?
