    Kat in Texas's Note:

    A yummy spread for crisp crackers. I make it anytime I have guests. If you like artichoke hearts, you'll like this! Originally from allrecipes.com, submitted by Peggy Hoffius.

      This was really good, but a little too onion-y. Next time, I will cut back on the green onions a bit, but will definitely make it again.

      I forgot to rate this! I made this for a birthday and everybody loved it. I cut back on the green onions to 6 instead of 8. Still fabulous!

      when i was mixing this up i was anticipating a 4* recipe, seemed like too many onions, but it's really good and deserves at least 5*s if not more! i did make a couple changes just for personal preference. we don't care for olives and i didn't have any chives. also used dried parsley, marinated artichoke hearts, and oil packed sun dried tomatoes. i thought it was a little too stiff and wanted to cut the cream cheese just a little so i added a spoon of mayo (didn't want to use the juice from the artichokes as it was very oily.) and ended up throwing in a little parm cheese. i also made even shorter work of mixing and just tossed it all in the bowl and mixed it up. i just tried a taste on a cracker and it's just wonderful, it's in the fridge now and i expect it'll be even better after the flavors blend for a bit. i expect this would be good to stuff inside of chicken, or as a sandwhich filling. i expect this'll be a regular on our menu around here, esp at get togethers. Thanks Kat!
