I have tried this dip at a few of the chain restaurants and have tasted a number of versions at parties. The problem that I have is that it is always made with way too much mayonnaise. This gives those recipes a greasy feel and the flavor is overly sweet.
For folks with acid reflux those recipes are going to contain far too much fat and it's possible that that greasiness might provoke heartburn. Using the reduced fat cream cheese along with the naturally low fat mozzarella gives this recipe a rich creaminess with a lot less fat.
Here's the recipe for Artichoke and Spinach Dip without the pictures. You can print the recipe by clicking the print icon at the top of the right-hand column. Be sure to turn off any popup blockers, as it opens in a new window.
First, assemble the ingredients.
Top, left to right: spinach, low-moisture mozzarella cheese, artichoke hearts. Bottom: nutmeg (whole seed), mayonnaise, salt, cream cheese.
