This dip doesn’t need much of an introduction except to say that it is very easy to make and tastes great!
It is also absolutely healthy and if you dipped vegie pieces in it instead of chips, you could eat it without any guilt whatsoever!
To make this dip you just drain a can of artichoke hearts (that are not in a marinade) and chop them.
After they are pureed you add the chopped olives and your choice of chopped fresh parsley or basil. I love the flavor both ways- I have tried them side by side and I still don’t know which I prefer!
The chips that I like best with these are made by a company called Food Should Taste Good. They are gluten free and the flavor is Jalapeno.
The combination of flavors with the chip and my dip tastes very close to the Artichoke and Jalapeno dip that Costco sells. Costco’s dip is yummy but it is full of dairy and fat. My dip has no dairy and is low fat!
The Chocolate is great because it is not sweet- it would be easy to eat the whole bag! It would be incredible with a mole spiced black bean dip (no, I haven’t done that yet!)
You can find these chips quite a few places now- Whole Foods has some of them and I think I even saw them at Beverages and More.

Puree artichoke hearts, garlic and olive oil:
1- 14oz can artichoke hearts (Trader Joe’s or Pastene- not in marinade), drained and chopped
5Tblsp olive oil (a nice, flavorful extra virgin)
1 garlic clove, minced
Place pureed mixture into a small serving bowl.
1/2 cup chopped olives (I use green olives in herbs from an olive bar in supermarket)
1/4 cup your choice finely chopped parsley or basil
Stir together and chill for 2-24 hours.
If you don’t have time to chill it it will still be great!
Serve with Food Should Taste Good Jalapeno Chips if you can find them!
Makes about 1 cup of dip.
