Hot Artichoke Dip

If you consider yourself a health-conscious eater, you may as well stop reading now.  While this dip might be a heart attack waiting to happen, it is so addictive and so good that it's totally worth it!  As long as you don't eat it every day, that is.
The jalapenos make it just spicy enough, and on a chilly fall afternoon, this is a perfect snack!  I got the recipe from my friend Jessica, who got it from a co-worker, and it is definitely staying in my personal collection!

2 15-oz cans artichoke hearts
1 small can diced jalapenos
1 cup mayonaise (yep, this is why it might be best not to eat this on a daily basis)
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, divided

Drain and chop the artichoke hearts.
In a bowl, combine them with the jalapenos, mayonaise, and 1/4 cup of parmesan.
Mix well, and spread in an 8" square pan.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, or until bubbly.
Serve with crackers, chips, or small pieces of French bread.

Ooo, that sounds delicious. If you use low-fat mayo, it makes it better for you, right? Haha, I'll definitely be making this for my appetizer group soon!

This looks yummy! I will have to try it. My stomach thinks so because it was making some obscene noises as I was reading about the dip! Ha!

A friend of mine made this once and I was SHOCKED at how simple the ingredients were, yet how good it was! I guess that's the power of mayo for you :)
