artichoke dip (2)
Want an easy but delicious appetizer?  Try this artichoke dip.  Served with slices of toasted French bread, everyone will love it.  You can make it as spicy as you like by upping the hot paprika, or you can even add some diced jalapenos.  This was perfect as is for all of us.

I haven't made this in years. Love the addition of the hot pepper jack cheese. Sounds very addictive....

Hands down one of my favorite dips and I don't even like artichokes - go figure?!

Hi Judy: I'm pretty sure I left a comment. I tried to become a "follower" yesterday but couldn't make it work. So, I'm back to try again.

This looks quite delicious, but I am not sure I would like the pepperjack cheese.
