You will love this hot artichoke and sun-dried tomato dip! I absolutely love tomatoes. I love tomatoes in all their forms whether it’s sliced tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, plum tomatoes, stewed tomatoes or spaghetti sauce. So it may come as a surprise to you that I had never before tried a sun-dried tomato. I’d seen them many times in the grocery store. I’d even picked them up and read about them. I wracked my brain trying to figure out exactly what I would do with a sun-dried tomato and in the end, I put them back down again.

What you’ll need to make this hot artichoke and sun-dried tomato dip:
Cast iron pan – I love baking in cast iron.While you can bake in another type of dish, cast iron works perfectly because it goes from oven to table and looks attractive.
Bread or cracker basket – You’ll want something to hold your crackers or breadsticks so guests can serve themselves. You’ll want something made of food grade materials rather than decorative to avoid chemicals that may not be food safe.
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes with Italian basil
- Handful of fresh baby spinach
- 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 (14 oz) can of artichoke hearts, drained, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- Crackers or breadsticks to dip with
- Heat oven to 350F.
- Combine all the ingredients except the crackers in a large bowl.
- Spoon it into a 9" oven proof dish or cast iron pan.
- Bake for 22 to 26 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.
- Serve hot with crackers or bread sticks.
This is absolutely amazing. Great dip for entertaining or just for enjoying any time. You can serve this with crusty French bread, crackers, breadsticks, Melba Rounds, mini bagels or any other type of bread you have on hand.
