Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip

The only other appliance or kitchen tool I love more than my slow cooker is my pressure cooker. During Summer in the South, the last thing you want is a hot kitchen from a hot oven. It is hot enough outside!

That being said, I made the best spinach dip yesterday. Put everything in the pot, gave it a quick stir, set on low for 3 hours, then had a very yummy lunch!

You can serve with crusty breads or crackers, tortilla chips or veggies.

Let me know what you think....

I loved it warmed up again in the microwave! Not too many dips are as good "reheated" but this one rocked!
