... After many a get-together, the next day we’d receive a call, “Hey, can I get that awesome dip recipe from you guys?”
Yes, it’s been a staple for baby shower food menus, many a celebrations and casual gatherings. It can be made with “fat-full”, as we like to call it ;), or “reduced calorie”. You Can make it “fat-free”, but we don’t recommend this, due to loss of some of the natural cheese fat flavors in the grated Parmesan cheese, and also the fat content in the mayonnaise.

- 1 - 15 oz. can of artichokes (drained)
- 1 cup mayonnaise (can substitute with light mayonnaise)
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 small can of green chilies
- ¼ cup chopped tomatoes
- Tomato for garnish (optional)
Stir all ingredients together and place in a greased pie pan or shallow casserole dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Serve with wheat crackers (wheat thins).
Tip: You can also use the marinated artichokes sold in the jars. Drain well (We rinse off the oil for lower fat content). The marinated flavor gives the dip a little zesty taste!
