Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner… you know what would be the perfect dish to serve? This Crock Pot Spinach & Artichoke Dip. Duh.
This dish is great because all you have to do is chuck a bunch of things in a crock pot, walk away for a few hours, and then serve and chow. So easy! I particularly like that last step… for obvious reasons.
I had a friend over on Sunday (partially to watch The West Wing… mainly to tell me whether or not he liked the gown I’ve picked for the opera later this month) and I served this dish. And it was a hit and a half.
I made this recipe a little healthier than it usually is by subbing the lower-calorie versions of everything (light mayonnaise and fat-free Greek yogurt instead of their full-fat brethren, almond milk instead of regular milk, etc). So feel free to indulge ;)

- 1 bag of spinach, chopped

Place the chopped spinach in the crock pot. In a food processor, chop the artichoke hearts and garlic cloves.
