In the spirit of Halloween I’ve decided to share with you one of my not so healthy recipes that’s always a huge hit, spinach artichoke dip. Because let’s face it, who eats healthy on Halloween? Not this girl. I have probably already eaten half my weight in sweets and it’s only 1 in the afternoon. Life is all about balance though and one day of candy binging does not a diet ruin! Like I said, I’m basically famous for this dip (okay maybe not), but people are always asking me what I put in it and it’s actually embarrassingly simple. There’s really nothing super special about my recipe, but here it is.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:

1  8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1 can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach defrosted and dried
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 and spray an 8×8 glass baking dish with nonstick spray. Mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, and parmesan cheese. Make sure you squeeze the excess water out of the spinach using paper towels (this part is really annoying). Add artichokes, spinach, salt, pepper and seasoning to the cheese mixture and  combine. Transfer to baking dish and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cheese begins to brown. Let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!
