1.5-QUART BAKING DISH
Preheat oven to 375 °F.
Combine cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, sour cream, milk, onion spice mix, and salt in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
Then add the chopped artichokes and spinach and gently stir to combine.
Transfer the mixture to an ungreased baking dish (approximately 1.5-2-quart capacity) and sprinkle ¼ cup shredded gruyere (or mozzarella) on top. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the top is golden brown and bubbly around the edges.
Serve warm with tortilla chips, crackers, and/or sliced baguette for dipping.
Drain the spinach very well, squeezing out any extra water with your hands, to avoid a watery dip.
If you want to brown the top layer of cheese even more, place it under a broiler for a couple of minutes at the end of the cooking time. (Make sure your baking dish is broiler safe!)
spice blend collab
When Selefina asked me to collaborate with them on a spice blend, I immediately thought of garlic and onion. I season basically everything with garlic and always add extra onion too! These two ingredients pack so much flavor-- pungent, but also a little sweet, with tons of umami.
Sweet + Zesty Onion Mix was inspired by an onion soup mix, full of bold onion and garlic flavor. I’ve added two types of paprika and sriracha salt for depth of flavor and just a hint of spice. This savory all-purpose seasoning can be used anywhere you’d use garlic and/or onion powder.
• creamy soups, sauces, and dips
• chili (or other hearty stews)
• marinade for chicken (or other protein)
This spice mix is best when added to a liquid, to soften up the dried onion and garlic pieces. Think soups, sauces, dips, marinades, etc.
