Artichoke Dip with Chopped Pecans is a delicious appetizer. The addition of pecans to a favorite appetizer adds flavor and texture.
I love a good artichoke dip and I have shared a couple of other ones here on the blog. There was Artichoke and Spinach Dip and Roasted Garlic and Artichoke Dip. Both are so good and since I live by the philosophy that you can never have too many good recipes I have another variation on a theme for you today.
Hot Artichoke Dip
You can pretty much depend on the fact that there will be at least one artichoke dip show up at every party you go to. A lot of times that dip is the cold variety, which is fine but the hot version is the best. I love it fresh, right out of the oven so if I am taking it to a party I often call the host ahead of time and ask if I can use the oven when I get there and will finish the last ten minutes of baking at the party. This dip always seems to be one of the first appetizers to disappear at every party! When I’m asked to bring an appetizer to a party I almost always bring an artichoke dip because I want to make sure there is one there!

Can I Make Artichoke Dip Ahead?
This is the perfect make ahead appetizer. Make it the day ahead and keep it refrigerated. Remove from the refrigerator about 30-60 minutes hour before baking to let it come to room temperature.
Although I think it is best served warm it is also delicious cold. It also reheats perfectly.
So if you have a gathering or BBQ to go to this week and you are asked to bring a salad or dessert bring this instead. I promise everyone will be glad you did.
