Jalapeno Artichoke Dip

A few months back, my sister-in-law, Emily brought this Jalapeno Artichoke Dip to a family dinner and I became OBSESSED.  After eating almost the entire containers worth, I decided to look at the ingredients to see if crack was the first thing listed I could recreate it at home. Sure enough, all the ingredients were legal, straight forward, and I had them all at home. Brilliant!!

Except then I completely forgot…..until yesterday. I have a bad memory. CLEARLY. I was at Costco taste testing hummus and seed crackers {or something else that wasn’t like crackers but involved a lot of seeds?!} when I saw approximately 1.4 million containers of Jalapeno Artichoke Dip. Pretty sure I audibly gasped and scared a few fellow shoppers. I looked over the ingredients again and had them all on hand AGAIN. It was a sign. So I went home, made this, ate it all and rubbed my belly. –>truth

Creamy, tangy, zingy, spicy, salty, addictive. Basically, world peace. In an appetizer.

Ok, so you want to know how to make it, yes? Well, get ready to work! And by work I mean open a few jars and call it a day.

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip

Start out by chopping up a few marinated artichoke hearts in a food processor. You just want them chunky and not too small. This dip needs texture which the artichokes give.

After that, throw in some cream cheese, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and a little splash of water {if needed} and blitz again.

After everything is mixed, you can spoon this whole thing into a different bowl because…

I wanted to stir in the chopped jalapenos by hand. It keeps the dip less spicy. If you like a lot of heat, throw those babies right in with everything else. No biggie.

    I love all your recipes. This dips looks amazing. Is it possible to substitute the fresh jalapenos for jalapenos from a jar? I live in Australia and here they don’t sell fresh jalapenos 🙁 Thank you

    I just wanted to share that I too recently discovered this awesome dip but when I re-created it at home I used the pickled Jalapeno’s instead of fresh and it is amazing!! Also, I did 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo and that too made it delicious!! Just found your blog and you are quite funny……but very real! Look forward to seeing more!

    So my husband and I just finished a container of jalapeno artichoke dip we bought at Sam’s Club this weekend. I did the same thing – looked at the ingredients and said “I can totally make this!” Thanks for the recipe!
