From Wal-Mart Homemade Recipe Booklet

Katie: We have had this recipe for quite some time, thinking it sounded good when we got the recipe booklet in the mail. We hadn’t made it because it made such a large quantity and we didn’t want to make it just for ourselves. We went to a party with about 10 people recently, and decided to give this a try. I made it, and it was very hard to stir with all the cheese in it, and it never did reach a consistency that I wanted it to. It was sorta gloppy, and when scooped up, wanted to slide right back off the spoon. The flavors were pretty good, but it made a big mess in my pot, so I don’t think I would make this particular recipe again. However, I love spinach-artichoke dip, so I will try another recipe another time! Good luck if you try this one!

Gray: This was tasty, but I think we can do better.  We have some other versions that we want to try.  If you need to make a large quantity for a party this would be a good recipe. I hope you enjoy!
