Hot Spinach and Artichoke dip

This has to be one of my favorite dips...I absolutely adore artichokes and could eat eat a whole jar by myself...yummmm. Here is a recipe, hope you all enjoy. This would be great with the homemade parmesan chips you made earlier ;o). Now of course since I am on a perpetual diet, I do low fat everything, but if you can't bring yourself to do that, use the regular.

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
2 (13 3/4-ounce) cans artichoke hearts

1 tbsp crushed garlic
1/2-cup mayonnaise, low fat
1/2-cup cream cheese, low fat
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan, 2% skim
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese, 2% skim

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish with nonstick spray. Heat the spinach in a microwave oven on high for 5 minutes and squeeze dry. Drain the artichoke hearts and coarsely chop in a food processor. Combine all the ingredients except the jack cheese in a large bowl. Stir well. Scrape into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle the jack cheese on top. Bake for 30 minutes. Transfer to a chafing dish and keep warm over a low flame. Serve with the parmesan tortilla chips.
