Spice up your parties with a creamy, cheesy, No-bake Green Chile Artichoke Dip using Hatch Chile Company Diced Mild Green Chiles.
As spring draws closer and closer with each passing day, invites for BBQs and family events are already starting to arrive. We’re really big into celebrating spring time with weekend events, picnics, and BBQs. They all know that I cook and bake and expect me to bring a dish that will wow them – nothing like added pressure! I try to make something that everyone can enjoy.
I’ve been dreaming about a good cheesy, gooey, artichoke dip for some time now. It started when my husband and I went out for appetizers with friends and they ordered artichoke dip. One of our friends couldn’t eat it because she’s allergic to garlic. I couldn’t enjoy it because it was topped with glutinous crumbs. Both of us felt left out, and I promised her that I would make an amazing artichoke dip that we could both enjoy.
We have several food allergies in our family including gluten, dairy, peanuts, soy, and garlic. I’ve been testing different versions of artichoke dip for some time now, and I’ve been able to create a dip that is free from everything except dairy (I’m still working on that though). Spinach and artichoke dips usually include garlic as a flavor enhancer, but because of the garlic sensitivity, I needed to find a way to add the same amount of flavor without garlic so they could enjoy the artichoke dip.
Remembering how flavorful and fresh Hatch Chile Company canned chiles are, I added a can of their green chiles to the artichoke dip. The chiles were a fabulous substitution for garlic spiciness, and the dip was bursting with a tang and flavor that it lacked before. Who would have thought chiles could be so versatile in recipes?
Some of the other recipes I’ve used Hatch Green Chiles in place of garlic are:
- Pasta sauce
- Pasta Salad and Potato Salad
- Pizza sauce (it might sound weird, but it’s incredible)
- “Garlic” bread (it’s good, I promise!)
Now that we have a go-to Green Chile Artichoke Dip recipe, that doesn’t include garlic or gluten, we plan to bring chips and dip to all of our upcoming parties. This no-bake dip recipe is ready in ten minutes leaving us plenty of time to get ready.
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1 Cup shredded mozzarella
1 Cup finely grated Parmesan
½ Cup sour cream
14 oz. Artichokes (1 can) drained and chopped
4 oz. Can Hatch Chile Company Diced Green Chiles
In a medium sauce pan, over low heat, melt the cream cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, and sour cream together. Stir constantly to prevent burning.
Once melted, add in the artichoke hearts and green chiles, and stir until combined. Cook for 1-2 more minutes, until everything is heated through. Serve warm with chip and veggies.
With Hatch Chile Company products, I can enhance the flavors in our meals and appetizers, all while keeping my family safe. My family enjoys the fresh flavors and variety of products that Hatch Chile Company offers, and we now use their products regularly.
