Friday Food: Spinach Artichoke Dip via a Blender

This is one of my favorite 'party' sides as it is fairly healthy, tastes great and is very easy to make.  With Super Bowl 50 a couple days away this is what I'm brining to the party.  Best part, make it in the blender and serve it in the blender (why make more dishes to wash if you don't need to?).  Have a great Super Bowl weekend everyone.

Serves 2-3 (might need to double up)

-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
