Notes

  • Cream cheese is the main ingredient in this dip. To make this recipe easier to mix; make sure you to take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator about an hour before preparing.
  • Creamy Tips: make sure there is no moisture in the dip when prepping. Tips:
    • defrost the frozen spinach and then put into a kitchen towel and wrap it up and squeeze all of the liquid out of the spinach before adding to the mixing bows
    • Use a can of artichoke hearts and here’s my trick to chopping and getting all the liquid out: drop the contents of the can of artichokes into a colander. Squeeze the artichokes with your hands and all of the liquid will drain and the artichokes will also chop up in the meantime.
