I’ve made this Spinach Artichoke Dip a zillion times. The last time I made it, I had an idea that I was certain would be fabulous. Instead of buying artichoke hearts, I bought artichoke bottoms. If you’ve ever eaten a fresh artichoke, you know that the bottom is always the meatiest, most delicious part. So it stood to reason that making the switch to bottoms from hearts would put my dip over the top.
Ummmmm…NO. Not even a little bit. It kinda ruined it, actually. I was shocked and a little disappointed. I thought I had the secret to improving upon what didn’t need improving. The flavor was there, but the texture just threw the entire thing off. So, a word of advice from me to you: make sure you stick with hearts. And enjoy this yummy recipe – it’s perfect as is.
