Spinach Artichoke Dip

This has been my go to recipe for spinach artichoke dip for years, and its always a huge hit. It's a great dip to take to your Superbowl party, that's why I'm posting it today! I like to just ignore the fact that it has heavy cream and butter in it and just go with it, because it's that good. Here's what you will need:

2 cloves minced garlic
2 Tbsp minced onion
1/4 Cup butter
1/4 Cup flour
2 Cups heavy cream
1/4 Cup chicken broth
2/3 Cup Romano cheese, shredded
1/2 Cup White Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp hot sauce (Tabasco)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 Cup sour cream
2 10oz boxes frozen, chopped spinach thawed & squeezed dry
1 14oz can drained, coarsely chopped artichoke hearts

In a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in butter until golden, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for one minute. Slowly whisk in cream and broth and continue cooking until boiling. Once boiling, stir in Romano cheese, lemon juice, hot sauce and salt until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Stir sour cream into mixture then fold in dry spinach and artichoke hearts.
Fold the mixture into a microwave-safe serving dish, or into several serving size dishes. Sprinkle Cheddar evenly on top. The dish may be refrigerated at this point until ready to serve. Microwave dip on 50% power until the cheese has melted.

This is restaurant quality spinach artichoke dip, so give it a try! I promise you will love it.
