Creamy Artichoke and Spinach Dip

I'm really not that big on spinach, but a couple of months ago my aunt made this dip and seriously...I couldn't stop eating it ~ I even took a big helping home and ate it for 2 days straight ~ Creamy Artichoke and Spinach Dip is a rich, delicious, inexpensive (All the ingredients were around $13) dish that can be served with tortilla chips or Pita Chips/Bread  ~  This dip was an absolute hit at the party, so I decided to make some and take to work ~ My co-workers seemed to really enjoy it! ~ I actually received RAVE REVIEWS (lol)  ~ If your looking for a quick, tasty appetizer....try this recipe out..I'm sure you and your friends will love it!
