Recipe by Joanne
"I bought a similar spread at the grocery store a while back, and I thought that I could do it better and cheaper myself. You can use imitation crab, instead of the real thing if you like. I use cooked and frozen artichoke hearts or you can buy fresh artichokes, and cook the hearts up yourself."

frozen cooked artichoke hearts, thawed and quartered
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
I made this dip for a family function and it was a big hit! It is delicious!! In a matter of minutes the whole bowl was gone and everyone wanted more!!
I made this spread last night, and it did taste just like something that you would buy at the store!
This was excellent. I added some Old Bay, per other reviwers' suggestions, but I tasted the dip before I added the Old Bay and it tasted great. This one will be used again and again.
Excellent recipe; my family loved it!
This was very good with thin crackers. I used imitation crab, but everything else I stayed with the recipe. Made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it.
Great stuff! I used 6.5 oz of crab instead, but the rest was to the original recipes proportions.
This a great dip, I used shrimp instead of crab b/c it was on sale and only 1 package of cream cheese and added Greek yogurt b/c that's what I had. Still it was a huge hit!
This is the BEST spread for Football games EVER!
