1/2 pint deli spinach dip (1 1/3 cups)
1 can (about 14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
1 package (8 ounces) refrigerated imitation crabmeat chunks
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar or Swiss cheese (2 ounces)
Assorted crackers or baguette slices, if desired
Heat oven to 375°. Mix all ingredients except Cheddar cheese and crackers in medium bowl until well blended.
2 Spread mixture in ungreased pie plate, 9×1 1/4 inches, or shallow 1-quart casserole. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
3 Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with crackers.
Check to see if your grocer’s deli or refrigerated case includes spinach-artichoke dip. If so, purchase 1 pint of that dip instead of the plain spinach dip and omit the can of artichokes
