Me vs. Cooking – Artichoke Dip

My sister gave me a recipe to do.  Just a simple recipe for our usual snacking around.  Artichoke Dip with McCormick spices!  Sounds yummy?

A few months back, we were supposed to make this dish when she visited us but due to her tight schedule (7 days), we weren’t able to squeeze in cooking.  So one afternoon, I saw the artichoke cans she brought from Canada and thought of finally cooking it!  This is recipe:

Smoked Paprika and Rosemary Refrigerated Dip

This is how it turned out...a bit yellow due to the spices used. But still YUMMY!

This was the mccormick smoked paprika & rosemary spice that I used.

 

I made mini versions of it and this is how it looks like before mixing it. Toasted top was really good!

Artichoke dip is one of the things I love to eat!  But I hardly order it at restaurants coz most of the time, it’s so expensive!  It’ll cost you at least P400 for one order of it with chips or pita.  And that’s as expensive as an entrée in some restaurants.

 

Now, I can have Artichoke dip at our own home any time we feel like it 😛
