Love this recipe with a few changes. I added another can of artichokes and generous sprinkle of "Ranch" dip dry mix. Yummy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have done this recipe twice. Dug it out last night and made for a get together. Everyone was raving and asking for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good but too greasy. I would cut the mayo way down if I made it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I brought this uncooked to a party, and someone else had made something similar. It is in my fridge, uncooked. Can this be frozen and cooked later??? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I altered the recipe, based on some of the suggestions in the other reviews of this recipe. I substituted sour cream for 1/2 of the mayonnaise, and added a can of diced green chili peppers and extra hot sauce (Tabasco) to spice things up a bit. Brought this to a party, where it got raves from the guests. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall this was delicious! I substituted half the mayo for sour cream & added a tsp. of garlic powder but made everything else according to recipe. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it didn't taste THAT MUCH DIFFERENT than other artichoke dip recipes. Next time I'll try to add some frozen spinach before baking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not bad, but I thought the taste of the mayonnaise was overwhelming. I may experiment and try this with yogurt instead of the mayo. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree it was amazing! This was worth 5 stars. So glad I followed the recipe as stated. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was amazing as is!!!! I just made it (doubled the recipe) for about 35 people and got rave reviews!!! Thanks Paula! It really was good, not just because it's from Paula as stated in the review below. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great! Way too much mayo in the recipe, so I subbed in a little light sour cream in it's place and I doubled the artichokes... (added two cans instead of just one). I'd add more hot sauce next time. I sprinkled paprika on the top and it gave it some nice color. item not reviewed by moderator and published
People give it 5 starsjust because it has Paula deens name on it. No offense intended to Paula deen. This was not worth 5 stars. So glad I did not follow the recipe as stated. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The is an easy to please appetizer. I made half a recipe and it served 7 with crostini. I would suggest adding garlic or jalapeños or banana peppers next time as recommended by others. I used part Swiss and part Monterrey and made sure the top was a nice golden brown before serving. I will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! I did substitute 1 cup of mayo for a can of cream of onion soup and omitted the onions. I also added two minced garlic cloves and substituted the mozzarella for a six cheese Italian blend. I forgot the salt but it didn't need it, and the bacon idea couldn't hurt. If it was just for me I would add a small can of minced jalapenos, but most of my family thinks ketchup is too spicy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made a variation of this before but couldn't remember the exact recipe and I came across this Paula Deen recipe and thought it sounded basically the same although I don't believe I used cream cheese in my previous recipe. This had a good flavor but the oil was RIDICULOUS. I think 2 cups of mayo is way too much, thus resulting in copious amounts of oil (had to turn the dish upside down to drain three times and it was STILL oily!) Next time I will try subbing with part sour cream. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent. My first attempt at it and it was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Totally oily from the Mayo. Is 2 cups correct? item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading a few of the reviews, I modified it a little to give it a bit more kick! No disrespect to Paula :). Here you go: I used 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream. I used 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese and 1/2 pepper jack cheese. I added approx. 1/4 tsp. onion powder and garlic powder and a dash of ground red pepper. I added a double dash of hot pepper sauce and Worcester sauce. I added an additional jar of marinated artichoke hearts because it was looking a bit too creamy. I sprinkled pepper jack and Parmesan on top and it gave it a nice crusty light brown topping and baked for 35 minutes. I served with veggie chips sold at Costco and warmed tortilla chips and it was excellent! Even my husband who is not a fan of spicy never said a word and inhaled a bowlful! There are many other variations that could be added to this: spinach, crab meat, different cheese combos just to name a few. I will definitely be making this for Christmas Eve! item not reviewed by moderator and published
add garlic. i never have leftover of this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
There are a million artichoke recipes, but this one got RAVE reviews as "The Best!". Split the mayo-half sour cream, added a little can of diced jalapenos, and crumbled bacon on top. :-) (Oh, generous on the worchestshire sauce!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Insanely delicious!!! Made just as recipe called for except for probably twice the hot sauce. I serves more like 6-8 because it is so rich. item not reviewed by moderator and published

LOVE THIS DIP! Served it at a dinner party & was a hugh hit. Will be using this one again & again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dip was good, but I wasn't blown away by it. My friends loved it, but I might add a few different ingredients to jazz it up a bit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Superb!! I made this exactly as the recipe asked and served with pita chips, veggies and toasted rye bread for a Christmas app. I was asked to make it agan for NYE ... it was a smash! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dip pretty much as described here and added bacon, knowing there would be men aged 18 to 78 at the party. Everything is better with bacon, right? Well, it was a HUGE success!! I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this as a Christmas appetizer and it was a hit! I made it exactly as the recipe says and it was perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent as a jumping off point, but you should tinker according to your tastes. I doubled the recipe, and made some changes of my own and those suggested by other reviewers. For the doubled recipe, I used 2 cups real mayo, 2 cups reduced fat sour cream. I used 16 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, 1 cup part-skim mozz, 1 cup pepper-jack (it needed this kick!, and real parmigiano-reggiano. I also added one box frozen (drained chopped spinach. I covered the top with parm and mozz for a browned crust. In my opinion it needed the tang of the sour cream, and the spice kick of the pepperjack...the original recipe would likely lean to the bland. I used a total of 4 sliced scallions, and you couldn't even taste them....I will add a whole bunch next time, and may skip the mozz and do all pepperjack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A real keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a hit! My family ate it all up and asked me to bring it for Christmas dinner. Super easy to make ahead and then bake 40 mins. before guests arrive. It has to cool before eating so plan for some time before digging in. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a good base recipe, something that can be changed to fit your personal taste, which is why I give it 4 stars (gotta show a little love for Paula, as always. It also makes a really big portion, which is great for parties. With that being said, it calls for WAY too much mayo. I personally like mayo, a lot, and I'm not a health nut or someone who thinks that everything should be organic, yet I still found it to be overpowering in this dish. It was a big hit at my Christmas Party, but I felt like I was just dipping my tortillas chips into a jar of mayo that had artichoke chunks in it. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I may use a combination of different bases, or maybe a lighter mayo, rather than just cream cheese and 2 cups of plain mayo <yikes>!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love rainforest cafes artichoke dip and have tried several recipes to find it and wasn't able to find one close to theirs. This dip was so much better than theirs. It was so good. I also tried a variation of using small shrimp instead of artichokes and it was great as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to agree with the 5 star rating. After reading the other reviews I did cut the mayo to just 1 cup. It was a hit, lots of yummms and OMG, that is good. I will certainly make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for Sunday football for my husband and I and we ate half of it in one sitting. I did add jalepenos which added just the right amount of heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I took Three Cheese Artichoke Dip to a School Music Reception. People came up to me to say they had tasted my dip and had to find out who found out who made it. I kept hearing the word "amazing". I made a couple of changes. I didn't have green onions, so I used onion powder to taste. My major change was making it in my crockpot. It worked perfectly. My friends kept asking where I found this amazing recipe. I'll be preparing it again to serve on our Christmas Eve buffet. I think a major difference in this recipe and others is that Paula tells you to beat the first couple of ingredients with an electric mixer. That produces a wonderful smoothness. I chop the artichoke into very fine pieces with a chopping knife, and I always use Hellman's mayo. If you use your crockpot, just be sure to use the low setting so you don't get that brown crusty cheese around the sides and keep it stirred. I served with corn chips, but pita chips would go wonderfully. It's a 5 Star Recipe in my book! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! Everyone at the party asked for the recipe. I did have to blot all the grease prior to serving-and it was A LOT! not good for you, but delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Big hit and recipe requests always! I double the amount of artichokes, use 1 cup mayo and 1 cup sour cream (result is less greasy and more creamy, 1/4 tsp or less garlic powder, also more generous with worchestershire and tabasco. I also top with parmesan cheese creating a golden brown crust on top. Some of my modifications are from previous reviews...It's so fast and easy to make that I have also started making two for larger gatherings. I bake and serve in Emile Henry pie pans for a beautiful presentation and easy access dipping. I serve with pita chips and/or crudites. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We added crab and shrimp to this and it became an instant classic for girls night in. Everyone LOVED it!!!!!! Paired with a loaf of french bread and an apple tini, this recipe will be our go to! Very little prep and easy to find ingredients; simple to make but very sophisticated. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was really easy to make. I took it to work and it was gone in 1/2 hr. Everyone raved about it and asked for the recipe. Next time I'll have to make 2 batches. It will be my appetizer to go for the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published

One of the very best artichoke dips ever had! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is just ridiculously good. It has been a staple of mine for 3 years as a trusted appetizer! Every time I make it I get requests for the recipe and every party I have it's a must have from my guests! I made it with miracle whip one, yuck, this recipe has to be full fat! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome dip!!! This was the first artichoke dip I've ever made and I couldn't believe how easy and how delicious it was! I am excited to make it again and take to a family dinner. I think I'll try adding chopped jalapeño like another reviewer suggested. Thanks Paula! I love your food! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a huge fan of artichokes, so I was surprised how much I loved this recipe! I used low-fat cream cheese and part skim mozzarella. I love taking new recipes to a party, and this one everyone just loved. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this 3 times during holiday season for get together and potluck. Everyone loved it. The last time I made it I used pepper jack cheese instead of mozzarella since it never got the zip I wanted even after using more hot sauce than stated. It's a keeper for my go-to recipes item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe, but I also add in a couple of extra dashes of worchestershire sauce and hot sauce, as well as one or two minced cloves of fresh garlic and a little fresh lemon zest to brighten it up. Also, I always use Helmann's Real (as in whole fat Mayonnaise because a friend who is a professional chef once told me that it's the best store bought mayonnaise that can stand up to the oven's heat without breaking down (whatever that means! haha. It's always a hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this to go along with Paula's cheese straws. The combination is out of this world. When I first tasted this dip, it was heaven lol. My husband loved it too, as well as our guests. The teen age boy who was here said "No thanks, I don't like artichokes." But later, after hearing people talk about this dip, he decided to try it. He LOVED it! He kept going back for more! This recipe is a huge success! Thanks Paula!!! You never let me down! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is very simple to make. I have made it twice now and there are never any leftovers. It's great for a party. I used a couple extra shakes of hot sauce and Worcester just to give it some added flavor. It's a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My wife and I had to make this dip because it sounded so good but we added a cup of chopped jalapeno peppers to give it a little kick. Let me tell you, this is a one of the best dips.

This has become my new favorite go-to appetizer recipe! It's so simple and delicious!!! I made it for the 2nd time today and it was a bit hit again. The first time I added canned lump crabmeat which was a nice addition. I also add a little sharp cheddar cheese on top for a little color. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this recipe all the time---it is ALWAYS a hit. I make it as per the recipe plus some crab meat, bake about 1/3 of it at a time and put the rest back in tupperware in the frig. Sometimes we just scoop out a little at at time and nuke it. It is a fun and yummy way to dress up wheat thins to broiled baguettes. As Guy would say--"this is money" item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this recipe as directed, but also added some pickled jalapeno slices (chopped). I also used onion powder in place of the green onions. I liked it and received positive feedback. It is simple to make and I will make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this but used a vidalia onion instead of scallions and added a few dashes each of hot sauce and worchestershire. It was very tasty. I will try it again with sqeezed dry, chopped spinach and another cheese instead of mozzarella because it is so mild tasting. item not reviewed by moderator and published
BIG crowd pleaser! Have made this several times. Lately have added a teaspoon of a creamy horseradish sauce, adds a nice flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published

So good! I use low fat cream cheese and mayo. When I don't have hot sauce on hand, I just use red pepper flakes. This is the best with celery, and I don't even like celery. I always double it for parties because it goes faster than I expect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely amazing dip! I served it for a bridal shower, and I thought people were going to ***** the dish. Flavor is much, much better than a run-of-the mill artichoke dip, and texture is thicker, easier to dip with crackers. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So simple and so delish. Made for girls get together and everyone loved it. Thanks Paula.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Brought this for a New Year's party and 2 of my skinny friends devoured it, couldn't leave it alone or stop raving about it, despite the 20 other apps that were there. I didn't put in the green onions, but did add several cloves of garlic, minced and some ground black pepper. The garlic adds a deeper, richer flavour to it, though it would probably still be amazing without it. I also used asiago cheese instead of parm, romano would also be a good sub. Doubled the recipe and served it in a mini-crockpot instead of heating it in the oven, so it stayed gooey-hot for the few hours it lasted. I'm not a hot sauce fan, but wouldn't skip it - same with the worchester sauce - all about flavour layering, and Paula knew what she was doing with this recipe. Absolutely *love* this dip! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We had this for Christmas, everybody loved it. Making it again for a baby shower. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have not made this recipe; however, will do so in a few days for a large ladies gathering. After reading reviews, my plan is to leave out worchestershire sauce. I cannot determine whether to use 2 cups of mayo OR 1 cup of mayo and 8 oz of cream cheese. Please, what is the difference. Some of the reviews say that Paula used 2 cups mayo - (recipe shows different)- whats up!!! Recipe does sound delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy, tastes great and is a hit at parties. I serve it with Melba toast. Yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Top notch! Everyone always loves it and asks about it! Just don't tell anyone where you got it...... Better than all the others on this website. Serve with big scoop fritos corn chips..... perfect.

The best hot artichoke dip I've ever had! No need to use anything but a fork to beat the cream cheese and mayo, if you nuke the cream cheese for about 20 secs in your microwave. Fan-freaking tastic! You'll love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to admit, we used the Light Mayo and Neufchatel that we already had on hand, but we didn't think the recipe was too great. It sort of came out tasting like mayo + artichokes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Love this recipe! I do make a small modification and add about 2cloves of garlic and chop up a small can of water chestnuts for a little extra crunch in the dip. I get asked for the recipe all the time, thanks for sharing Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dip is awesome and very easy to make... have made many times before and always a hit. It is also perfect to make the day prior. I made this as well as Alton Brown's Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip, as some in my family have an aversion to seeing green in their food :) Because I was doing two similar recipes I used 4 ounces regular cream cheese and 4 ounces 1/3 fat cream cheese. I also use low fat mozz cheese and like it, but am used to eating lower fat cheese. I do skip the Worcestershire sauce and double up on Tabasco (hot sauce) as personal preference. Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an excellent dip, that comes out very tasty every time. I sometimes put it on french fries. One thing to be careful of is putting too much worcestershire sauce in. In the recipe it calls for a dash and you should really only put a small dash. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was very excited about this recipe and I ended up not liking it. I love most of Paula's recipes, so this one surprised me. It was too rich and salty. I feel like it needed something else. There was just something off about it. We ate it with crackers. It may be better on veggies. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have now prepared this dip 4 times in the last 2 weeks. Everyone loves it and keeps asking me to make it. I love making it because it is so easy and I love it myself, but my problem is that I have been trying to stay of a diet and would like to see if I can get the nutritional info on this dip so that I can try to keep up with my calorie count. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Ok, I've never really been one that liked artichokes let alone artichoke dip!! but my aunt made this dip for a family get together last christmas and i've been HOOKED ever since!

Very good dip- great for entertaining. We did change one thing, though, because we did not have green onions on hand (and we are onion freaks!), so we had a regualer yellow onion, cut it in half & diced it, sauteed it in butter & put that in. Yummy!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had to come up with an appetizer for my sister-in-law's BBQ and this was perfect! It was really easy to make, and everyone absolutely loved it. My husband kind of gave a frowny face when he realized there was no spinach in it, but was later raving about it. I doubled the recipe and it worked perfect. The next day, I mixed the leftovers with tuna and penne pasta and made a casserole out of it. My husband loved that, but I thought it was a little rich. Next time, I'll add chicken, spinach and pasta to it, but I think it needed a little more "non-dip" stuff in it. Awesome recipe! A keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
