Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip
adapted from Alton Brown's recipe on Foodnetwork.com
serves 6 as an appetizer

10 Oz. Frozen Chopped Spinach, Heated According To Package Directions
14 Oz. Can Artichoke Hearts, Drained and Chopped
6 Oz. Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup Sour Cream
1/4 Cup Mayo
1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Italian Seasoning, To Taste (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 8 x 8 glass baking dish with non-stick spray, set aside.  In a medium microwave safe bowl, microwave cream cheese until hot and soft.  Stir in sour cream and mayo.  Add seasonings, spinach and artichokes.  Spread into the baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.  Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, bread cubes, or veggies.

Happy New Year!  I thought I would make this classic appetizer to kick off 2012.  It breaks all the 'healthier you' resolutions, but I'm sure you could justify it if you use low fat everything and dunk carrots in it(it does have veggies in it!)
