great recipe

I really love the spinach and artichoke dip that T.G.I.Friday's has, and I love that they sell it in store, but it is kind of expensive and is not that big of a portion. It is great to have a recipe that I can make for parties and such.

Loved it, have been looking for a good recipe for my go to dip and looks like i found it thanks! I used regular sour cream because anything light has more bad ingredients in it, the less ingredients the better)

I make this all the time but I never use anything low fat, less fat or skim. My neighbor made it this way and asked me to compare it to mine. No comparison. Hers was a little gloppy and had an off putting taste and texture. Mine is creamy and the texture is heavenly. Besides....I also use Hellman's mayo in mine as well.

That's funny-no low fat, less fat, or skim. I like your style codcut! And the same goes for meat that's too lean! You've got to have some marbling!

How much Hellmans?

Yes, how much hellmans and is that in place of the sour cream?


How much alfredo sauce how much cream cheese?

Can I use frozen, thawed chopped spinach in place of fresh?

I don't see why not, but fresh is always better (a course that is just my opinion) Happy Holidays =..= :)
