Crab and Artichoke Dip

We had friends over to watch the election coverage and we had a smorgasbord of  appetizers to munch on through the night.  I made this crab and artichoke dip and served it with crostini. It took only a few minutes to make and tasted fantastic.  This dip had a great combination of flavors and textures – cheesy, creamy, salty, and delicious.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

Add the crab, chopped artichoke hearts, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, and minced garlic together in a bowl.  Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Pour into the prepared baking dish.

Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden on the top.  Serve with crostini, crackers, or tortilla chips.  Enjoy.

    Mmmmm but this looks good. I have Topinambour in the garden which tastes like Globe artichoke, might try this out with that and see how it works. Keep well Diane

    When you use the election returns as a reason for a party, I know you are a serious partier/ hostess :-) . With crab and artichokes, this dip sounds outstanding and will go on the try list.

    This looks great Pam. Where do you get the crab though? Is it sold in the regular supermarkets or do you have to go to a fish store?

    Made this absolutely delicious dip. Added one dash of cayenne pepper. My son-in-law
    said ‘It was the BEST dip he’d ever eaten’ and I agree!
