Artichoke & Green Chile Dip

Nick found some random dips on sale at Kroger the other day and one was an artichoke and green chile dip. It was good, but I thought I could reproduce it and maybe make it even better. I did! I served this at the party and it was snarfed down in a hurry. It’s easy and delicious!

Artichoke & Green Chile dip

1 8oz package of cream cheese, room temp
2 tsp garlic paste (or 1 clove of garlic, pasted)
1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup sour cream
4 oz can diced green chiles, drained
1/3 cup monterey jack cheese, fine shred (I think pepper jack would be even better!)
1 4oz jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
1/2 tsp dill
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard (or 1 tsp dijon)

Cream together first 4 ingredients by hand or with a mixer until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients and let sit in fridge for at least half an hour before serving. Great with veg or crackers!
