Rat's Nest Halloween Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

Rat's Nest Halloween Spinach and Artichoke Dip, every good party needs a great dip. A Halloween Party needs a Spooktacular one! This is it!
Hola Amigos! There is no party without a good dip right? I love spinach and artichoke dip! That is the first and  pretty much only appetizer I order other than stuffed mushrooms (those will be coming soon). Also I like mine warm but if I'm desperate, I really don't care how it is ...just pass the chips!
This particular recipe is my SIL's !!! I'm sure you probably make it a similar way since it's such a simple and easy recipe but boy!...so good!
Rat's Nest Halloween Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Bring the Life to your Undead Halloween party with this Fabulous Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip! It's out of this World and Easy to Make

What I love about it is that it has tons of cheese and equal amount of spinach! I've found some places cut the amount of spinach short and add a fillers  like water chestnuts instead!

Chips are an important part of this dip. Don't get the thin ones! This particular dip is thick and chunky so you need a good chip to get a hold of all the goodness!

And why the Rat's Nest name for my this particular one? well think about it, Rats are omnivores, but they love cheese there are 3 cheeses alone on this one! Rats like warm moist places, this dip has the right amount of moisture thanks to the spinach and since it's baked...it's steamy hot! And rat's are messy...there is a mess every time you eat chips right? crumbles everywhere...or maybe just when I eat them,  lol
