“I entertain a lot and this crowd-pleasing dip is fast and fabulous!” writes Suzanne Zick from Maiden, North Carolina. With its rich flavor, no one will ever guess it was made in a microwave!

    It was good, but needed more seasoning and it was dry. I like mine creamier and will probably use this as a base for a creamier dip next time I make it.

    I absolutely love this recipe. It is so easy to make and it is done in the microwave. The hardest part was chopping up the Artichokes to make sure no woody tasting pieces went into it. I was wondering why there was no salt added to it, then my sister, Sharon mentioned that the cheeses would have salt in them. It was the right amount of salt then. More Cayenne Pepper could be added for more zip or a teaspoon of Chili in Adobo Sauce would work too. The Parmesan Cheese is to sprinkle on top and I misread the recipe and added it to the mixture and it came out alright though. All in all, it is a great recipe, i will make alot.

    I mixed the ingredients together like the directions say but instead of putting it back in the microwave at the end I put it in a small crockpot for people to dip out of during our party. It was a hit, everyone hung out around the dip and it was gone before we knew it.
