This recipe is a keeper!
I had never made spinach artichoke dip from scratch, but not only was it easy, I think the results were better than some of the store-bought versions! (Although, Whole Foods makes an excellent example, should you ever be looking for pre-made spinach artichoke dip.)
The recipe is from Food & Wine's December 2009 issue. My version looks like it has more spinach in it than the picture on Food & Wine's website, but I followed the recipe to a tee (well, except for the hot sauce - ew!). Don't skip the spiced pita chips; they are fabulously tasty. One thing I managed to forget to do is to brush the olive oil mixture on both sides of the pita, but they still turned out ok.
