Movie Tavern
Spinach Artichoke Dip
2 Tablespoons butter
1 - 8 oz. package frozen chopped spinach
1 - 4 oz. jar chopped quartered artichoke hearts
2 oz. roasted red bell peppers, diced
1 cup mild cheddar cheese
1 cup cream cheese
Pita chips

This recipe has been modified to work at home based upon one of our Movie Tavern favorite appetizer items.  All the items are easy to get at your local grocery store.  Thaw and drain spinach and set aside.  In a medium size pot melt 2 table spoons of butter, add artichokes, bell peppers and spinach.  Slowly stir in cheeses to desired consistency.  Serve with pita chips.

1/4-2/3 cup cream, half-and-half, or whole milk
1 roma tomato, seeds removed and diced
1 small bunch cilantro, roughly chopped

Heat the oil in a sauté pan.
Cook the onion and pepper until softened and reduce heat to medium-low.  
Add the shredded cheese and 1/4 cup of the cream. Stir until mostly melted.
Add the tomatoes, cilantro, and additional cream a little at a time until you reach desired consistency.
