Hot Artichoke-Spinach Dip

Husband-Tested Recipe from Alice's Kitchen
Serves 4

This is the same delectable dip you'll find occasionally at Lost River Market & Deli. It's great to take to parties with some of the tasty crackers that the store has to offer. This can be made a day in advance. Just pop it in the microwave to warm it up before serving to your guests. Take any left over (if there is any) to lunch the next day along with carrots to scoop it up with. Yum! Another tasty dip to have in your recipe file is Hot Cheesy Almond Dip (recipe on this blog.)

1 box of frozen chopped spinach
1 cup of chopped artichoke hearts (canned--not marinated)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of freshly ground pepper

Cook spinach according to package directions. Squeeze out all of the water. Mix all ingredients together well. Spread into a pie plate or other heatproof serving dish. Cover with plastic wrap. Just before serving, heat in the microwave until hot, about 3-4 minutes. Serve with crackers.
