Notes

Cooking tips
To cook the frozen spinach remove it from the packaging and place it into a microwave-safe dish and cook on high 3-4 minutes or until completely thawed. The spinach will be hot so be careful. After it's cool squeeze it through a mesh strainer and completely strain out the water. It's important to remove as much water from the spinach as possible before adding it to the other ingredients. 
Do not purchase marinated artichokes. You'll want to purchase artichokes in brine for this recipe.
 
Make ahead instructions
This dip can be made 2-3 days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. Heat up in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
