Spinach Artichoke Dip

Part of my Super Bowl meal!  It was extremely easy to make, and very tasty.  Lots of ways to cater to your taste-buds, like adding mushrooms, tomatoes… I personally will add more heat next time I make this.

INGREDIENTS

Salt 1 pkg frozen spinach (I used Frozen chopped spinach)
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ large onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
½ jalapeno, seeded & minced
1 pkg Philly Cream Cheese1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded white sharp cheddar cheese
1 small jar artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
Tortilla chips and/or pita bread for serving

Remove the spinach from the packaging and place in a microwave safe container (I used Tupperware).  Cover and microwave for 7 minutes.

*If you bought the full leaf frozen spinach, let cool and chop

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, jalapeno and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook until the onion is soft, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach, mix well.
