Art' to Swallow...

Funny thing about artichokes... Even though they're very low in calories, they're often abused and prepared in incredibly fattening ways. (See oily appetizers, greasy sandwiches, etc.) This spiced-up dip is no different. If you take a big bowl of cheese and mayo and stir in some veggies, you've STILL got a big bowl of cheese and mayo. (We're not easily fooled.) But since game time calls for special eats, we gave conventional jalapeño artichoke dip an HG makeover. Our creamy creation tastes just as decadent, but check out our winning stats! Serve with baked tortilla chips and/or cut veggies, and you'll be giving those artichokes the respect they deserve. (We learned the hard way to never disrespect an artichoke...)

What's that? Today, January 29th, is National Corn Chip Day? We couldn't have planned this better, since Guiltless Gourmet corn tortilla chips would be GREAT paired with the above dip!
