THE BEST ARTICHOKES MAKE THE BEST DIP
This dip is so easy to make and full of flavor thanks mostly to the star of the show — marinated artichoke hearts. Have you ever tried to harvest the choke (a.k.a. the heart) of an artichoke? Have you ever tried to do it 7 times in a row…before a party? Oy. When it comes to harvesting artichoke hearts, Reese’s carves into only non-GMO project verified artichokes and does all the hard work for us. This ready-made ingredient makes our prep work for this recipe beyond simple. I’ll have more of that, please.
Reese Marinated Artichokes are an extremely versatile ingredient and can be used in all different types of dishes, but I have to say, I think you’ll like them best in this creamy Artichoke Jalapeño Dip. The artichokes are marinated in a mixture of oil, vinegar, salt, and spices that makes them uber flavorful. They add a bright acidic note to the dip to that keeps you and your guests coming back for more.
HOW TO MAKE ARTICHOKE JALAPENO DIP
Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is seriously easy to make, requires very little prep work, and you’re looking at less than 15 minutes for total assembly time.
QUICK RECIPE OVERVIEW

It begins with a mix of softened cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. The cream cheese adds body to the dip and also a nice tang in addition to the sour cream. The addition of mayonnaise ensures a smooth and creamy base for your dip.
The next main components for our Artichoke and Jalapeño Dip (as you might have suspected) are marinated artichokes and fresh jalapeños. Then, for an extra boost in flavor and added savoriness, Parmesan cheese goes in, followed by the addition of freshly squeezed lemon juice. The lemon juice brightens up the dip, rounding out the flavors nicely.
When it all comes together, it’s an addictive dip, that you and your guests will find entirely delicious.

- Strips of Bell Pepper

This dip would be gorgeous on a crudité platter with strips of red and green bell peppers, carrots, and celery.

But, my favorite way to serve Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is about as simple as it gets — alongside a bowl of thin, crispy tortilla chips.
