From my grandmother’s kitchen to yours, this artichoke dip has long been a crowd favorite. It is a fact of football season that every tailgate needs a proper dip and this one more than qualifies. Consisting of only five ingredients, this spread is a promised touchdown for your taste buds. Make it once and your tailgating cohorts will be cheering for more. Chips, carrots, celery, bread, crackers and Sinless Sides are all worthy vehicles for this party in your insides dish.
