Week 21 : Red Pepper Artichoke Dip

14 ou artichoke hearts, chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup cream cheese, broken into small pieces
1/4 tea black pepper
1/8 tea crushed red pepper flakes
dash of salt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
one bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped

Mix all ingredients together in Crock Pot.  Cook on LOW about 2 hours, stirring frequently until cheeses are melted.  Serve with Wheat Thins, pita chips, veggies....

This came as a last minute decision for a last minute pot luck.  I accidentally ran out of the house without my camera, so, unfortunately, there is no picture.  (But you can imagine what it looks like- a dip!)  The red peppers are a nice addition and make this recipe surprisingly colorful.  This is a delicious, easy dip to make.  If you like things a little on the spicy side, as I do, add more red pepper flakes.  There is already a bite to this, but I would've preferred a little more.  You can also lighten this recipe up by using fat-free cheeses.  I just feel that the fat free cheeses never melt as well as the regular cheeses.  Also, if you are expecting a crowd, double the recipe.  Thanks to the Fix-It and Forget-It Big Cookbook for this recipe.  Enjoy!


  1. Alison we at this household love the artichoke, and of course anytime we can dip some sort of chip into the dip, it brings a smile to our face. Can't wait to try. OK. Off to Sprouts Market for cooking supplies!! Thanks for posting. :)

  2. I love artichokes, but I'm not sure that my hubby will eat them. This would be something good to take to a potluck! Then I could eat it and if he didn't like it he wouldn't complain :)

  3. This would be perfect for a potluck! Most of the ingredients come packaged so that you wouldn't have to buy much more to double the recipe. And I bet if you didn't tell your husband there was artichokes in it, he would never even know! The cheese and red peppers take over this recipe!

  4. I'm taking this recipe to the mountains this weekend! Sounds perfect for game night on a snowy evening!
