There are so many wonderful recipe variations of artichoke dips out there, and I just wanted to share one version with you that we often make for our family & friends gatherings. I'm sharing the basic recipe first, then have listed some additional, optional ingredients you may want to try. We have tried them all, and find that any way you make this, it's delicious! (If you wish to make this "less calories" use fat-free or low fat cheeses, mayo, & sour cream.)
