Friday Food: Spinach Artichoke Dip-Via a Blender

This is one of my favorite snack recipes to make to enjoy or take to a gathering and share.  Namely because it is easy and you get to do it in a blender.  Doesn't get much easier than that and at the same time if tastes fantastic.  Enjoy this one.

Artichoke and Spinach Blender Dip
Serves 2-3
-1/2 yellow onion
-3 gloves garlic, chopped
-1/2 Tbsp olive oil
-1/2 bag baby spinach
-1 can artichoke hearts or 4 fresh artichoke hearts, cooked and quartered
-1/2 container Boursin cheese (French herb cheese) or herbed cream cheese
-1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-Pita chips or baked tortilla chips

Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and olive oil, and cook until light brown. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Add artichoke hearts, Boursin and mozzarella; stir lightly until cheeses melt. Pour mixture into a blender and pulse until well chopped, adding a splash of water if it doesn’t blend right away. Serve immediately with pita chips or backed tortilla chips
