Chicken bacon artichoke dip

I love the couple of weeks leading up to the Superbowl because I have an excuse to make yummy, gooey dips with the intent of sharing them with you! Dan and I have a weakness for dips, which makes the Superbowl a fun event for us every year. Someone told me once that there is actually FOOTBALL being played that day?! Ha! Nice try.

I was inspired to make this recipe after seeing this on Allrecipes. I just about squealed when I saw all of these delicious ingredients swimming together in my baking dish. When it came out of the oven, Dan and I both pounced. Mmmm, it was everything I expected and more.

Preaheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a medium-sized baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine:

2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded

6 strips bacon, cooked and chopped

14-oz. can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

1 cup fresh spinach, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup milk

3-oz. package cream cheese, softened

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Salt and black pepper, to taste

Mix well and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Top with 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Serve warm with chips or crackers.
