Peri Peri Artichoke Dip

This simple recipe is from the makers of Nando's Peri Peri Sauces, exotically delicious hot sauces from South African that feature the fiery peri-peri pepper. If you're watching the NCAA tournament this weekend and want to serve a zesty dip for chips or raw veggies, this one is sure to bring cheers of joy regardless of the game score.

1 can artichoke hearts, drained
1 8oz package cream cheese (regular or low-fat), softened
1/3 jar Nando's Lemon Peri Peri Cooking Sauce
1 to 2 Tbs (to taste) Nando's Medium Peri Peri Sauce or Nando's Hot Peri Peri Sauce (see note below)
Chopped parsley or cilantro to garnish

Gloria's Note: You can use any other flavor of Nando's Hot Sauce if you prefer.

Coarsely chop the artichoke in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients until thoroughly combined and to the desired smoothness. Pour into serving bowl, garnish with parsley or cilantro, and serve with chips, pita wedges or raw vegetables.

Zestfully yours,

PS: Nando's Lemon Peri Peri Cooking & Grilling Sauce is currently on sale for only $4.99 a jar at the Carolina Sauce Company online store!
