Tasty Tuesday - Artichoke Dip

Confession - I made this dip twice this weekend and even ate it for lunch on Monday. It's THAT good...and I'd rather sleep a few extra minutes than make a full lunch on Monday mornings. Hope you enjoy!


Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:

1 TBSP butter
1 8 oz. package 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided (I used a little more)

Directions:

-Preheat oven to 350*.

-Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cream cheese and garlic; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until cream cheese melts. Fold in artichokes, sour cream, and 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese; stir until cheese melts.

-Transfer mixture to a 1-qt. shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.

-Bake at 350* for 10-15 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Serve immediately with pita wedges or Tostito's!
