Instructions

Preheat oven: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Mix the base: In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, Caesar dressing, chopped artichoke hearts, squeezed spinach, garlic powder, and black pepper. Mix until well blended.

Add most of the cheese: Stir in 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese and all of the Parmesan cheese into the mixture.

Transfer to baking dish: Scoop the dip into your baking dish and spread it into an even layer.

Top with remaining cheese: Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese over the top of the dip.

Bake: Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, or until hot, bubbly, and the cheese is lightly browned.

Optional broil: For an extra golden-brown top, turn your broiler on high and broil for 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye to prevent burning.

Serve: Let the dip rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy it warm with your favorite dippers, like: Tortilla chips, Crackers, Pita bread, Sliced vegetables (carrots, celery, bell peppers).

Tips

Make it creamy: Add a splash of milk or cream if you prefer a thinner consistency.

Spice it up: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a bit of heat.
