Jalapeno Artichoke Dip

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip Shout if you have netflix.

Holy moly, guys. Not THAT loud! My baby is sleeping! 

Just kidding. She’s awake.

So, I kindamaybe have a new obsession with Dawson’s Creek. The entire series got put on netflix a few weeks ago and I’ve been addicted. Anytime I’m not doing something worth while I watch a show. You GUYS. UGH! It’s SO BAD but it’s SO GOOD. I want to look away but I just CAN’T! Like a moth to a flame.

Obviously I could be doing something better with my time, but why would I? Joey is about to pick Pacey, go on a summer long adventure on his boat and crush Dawson’s heart at his parents vow renewal ceremony. Joey and Pacey 4ever.

That is all.

So, that little rant has nothing to do with today’s post. You’re welcome.

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 weren’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.
dip 1 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.
ingredients After that, throw in some cream cheese, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and a little splash of water {if needed} and blitz again.
dip 4 After everything is mixed, you can spoon this whole thing into a different bowl because….
dip 3 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.
dip 2 Serve this with veggies, bread, chips, a shoe, whatever. It tastes amazing on everything :)

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup marinated & drained artichoke hearts
1/2 cup grated parmigiano reggiano cheese
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
salt & pepper, to taste
splash of water
1-2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapenos

Directions:

Place artichokes into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped. Add in parm, cream cheese, mayo, salt and pepper. Pulse in short bursts or until everything starts to blend. I added in a splash of water to get things going at first. Make sure to leave the dip slightly chunky, so it has a good texture. Spoon dip into bowl and stir in chopped jalapenos by hand. Serve with pita, crackers, tortilla chips, veggies, or anything else lying around. So so good :)

  2. I could eat this whole bowl right after work and before dinner! Then I don’t have to make dinner! Sneaky! :)

  3. I love Netflix!! I haven’t seen Dawson’s creek so maybe I need to put it on the list. I love finding old series and watching them in their entirety. I did it with Friday Night Lights and Mad Men. It pretty much took over any free time I had for like a year! A little dip to go with tv is always a good idea! Nice :)

  4. I love love artichoke dip – in any form. Ive made dips, artichoke bars, spreads, you name it and love that you added jalepenos. I used to buy this artichoke dip with a kick – now I can just make it!

  5. OMG!! I am a dip fiend. Like, surrriously, don’t bring dip around me unless your intentions from the get-go were me, sitting alone at the food table, hoarding the dip (uh, hello, Easter? I’m talking to you). This dip looks awesome! I love the spicy addition of the jalapeno. I want this, some rockin’ tortilla chips, and some Netflix (PLL, anyone??) right now!

  6. OMGosh. I could eat this entire recipe without a blink of an eye. It looks SO SO good. I like my dips spicy, cheesy, chunky, and thick! You’ve covered it all.

  7. I can’t take anything spicy so I may have to make this without the jalapenos. Love artichoke dips!

  9. Oh how I love this dip. I kinda want to bathe in it. Sorry – overshare.

    But you’ve also now validated my Dawson’s Creek curiosity. I’ve always wanted to try it, so now I’m going to be hitting up Netflix. Guess I’ll be busy up a creek the next few weeks… (ew. sorry.)

  10. I got a little confused … Is this a replica of the one at Costco? Or a different recipe that your sister gave you? (or both?)

    Either way, it looks and sounds awesome, and dips are totally my favourite food :-)

  11. I am currently on season 5 of Dawson’s Creek. I may or may not watch an episode or two every night before bed. I’m either becoming immune to bad TV, or the show really steps it up between season 3 and 4. I am totally obsessed with the wardrobe. I swear I had 80 percent of Joey Potter’s clothes. Love guilty pleasures. I have similar feelings for Dance Academy. Look it up on Neflix. It’s gold.

    Oh, and this dip looks awesome.

  12. I have never watched Dawsons Creek but maybe I will make some of this delicious dip and make myself a date with the couch :)

  13. I’m ashamed to admit that we have the whole series of Dawson’s Creek on DVD.

    Just recently found your blog…and immediately made the tex mex chicken & white cheddar spaghetti, which was absolutely delicious. This dip looks tasty too! I probably should wait until I have a party to take it too, though. I would likely eat the whole bowl…while watching yet another episode of Dawson’s Creek.

  14. Ahhh I love looking at all the different artichoke dips in the ‘dip’ section of the grocery store. This sounds amaazing. I love some heat, so I’d probably add the peps in the food processor 😀

  15. I have been making this dip for years, after having spent far too many dollars on it at Costco. However, I use sour cream rather than cream cheese, which I am far more likely to have on hand. And in a pinch you can use canned, diced jalepeno. :) Sometimes, I bake it in a gratin topped with more parmesan. I can eat this with a spoon (and believe me I sometimes do!), but it is also excellent if you throw a dollop on top of a rib steak during the last few minutes of grilling. Perfection!

  19. Dude, I was always kind of a Joey and Dawson gal! Although I loved Pacey too!

    And oh man, this dip is absolutely sinful! I love the jalapeños in this!

  20. This looks incredible! Pinned for my next party.

    (now I have to start watching Dawson on Netflix for nostalgia. Joshua Jackson is now on Fringe and he’s aged REALLY well.)

  25. LOVE this dip. Made a double batch for a party last night and served with both veggies and pita chips… Huge hit. Craving it already so may have to whip up another batch. Obsessed with your website! Keep it up:)

  26. Girl, you are hilarious! I had to laugh when you mentioned crack as a possible ingredient…lol! I don’t eat cheese…do you think it would be good without the cheese in the recipe? I think I’d have to add a little fresh minced garlic to the mix since that is my “crack” of choice.

  27. *raising hand* I too get sucked into shows that are soo bad they are good. Case in point-Pretty Little Liars. Luckily for me my husband works nights so I can watch multiple episodes without any complaint from the male department.

    If you haven’t already, you must watch Weeds and Friday Night Lights (the series, not the movie). Both my husband and I were obsessed with those shows until the end.

  28. I tried watching Dawnson’s Creek one day last week. I couldn’t take it though. It was so much better when I was in high school. :(

    Then again, I didn’t have this dip to keep me company while I watched. I should probably try again.

  30. Love the dip from Costco, but will try your recipe so I can tweak a bit. I’m going to put some jalapenos in my smoker and smoke them before using them… to soften them up a bit.

  35. 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
