Preparation / Directions:
The following appetizer is sure to be a crowd pleaser. I have never taken it anywhere without being asked for the recipe:
Tear artichokes apart with your fingers.
Cut up pita bread into chip size triangles, separate and bake on a cookie sheet until crispy (approx 5 minutes). Combine all other ingredients and mash (a KitchenAid mixer works great).
Bake in a uncovered casserole dish for approx 30 minutes @ 350 or until bubbly.
Serve hot out of the oven and scoop up dip with pita bread. If you intend to take this to a party or are having friends over be prepared to recite this recipe a number of times. My wife and I bring xerox copies with us!
