With Christmas and New Years approaching, we’re all trying to think of what to bring to the parties and potlucks. If you’re hosting the party this year, make this crab and artichoke dip. You can make the dip the night before, that way all you have to do is pop it in the oven the day of the party. This dip is packed with so much flavor and a loads of cheese. Most people use artichoke hearts, I personally prefer to use artichoke bottoms because hearts have a leafy texture to it. But if that doesn’t bother you, you can definitely use artichoke hearts. A great way to serve this dip is with some toasted slices of French bread, or to make life easier, pita chips taste wonderful as well.
