I like to think of Christmas as not only the season of carols, lights, sweets and Santa but also as the season of dips. Season of dips… has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? I think the reason that I eat so many different dips at this time of year is because there are so many parties and special occasions to make them. Not to mention football games. And this dip is perfect for all of them. It’s hot. It’s creamy. It’s crunchy. Each bite makes you want another. Really, it’s everything a dip should be.
Most of us are used to the idea of spinach and artichoke dip, but for this dip I decided to try kale instead. The kale holds up a little better than the spinach, it’s heartier. But perhaps, my favorite part of this dip is the crunchy potato chips that are crumbled on top. Just imagine, creamy cream cheese, melted pepper jack, tender artichokes and kale sauteed in a cast iron skillet, topped with crumbled chips and baked until bubbly and golden. You want it right now don’t you? I know…me too.
