Hot Artichoke-Jalapeno Dip

Get ready to add a new dip to your rotation! 

This idea is courtesy of Peanut Butter and Peppers, and when I saw it pop up in my Pinterest feed, I knew I had to try it. 

What an over-the-top-flavor twist on artichoke dip! She made a healthier version (with low-fat ingredients and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream), but I went all out.

I have gone back and forth over the inclusion of the jalapeno juice, in addition to the jalapenos themselves. When I tasted it last night, I thought it might be too strong for most people, but it got good office reviews today. I personally like the tang/acidity it gives the dish, but it could make it a little too spicy for a lot of palates. So...use at your discretion.

Update: I just had this as an afternoon snack, and it tastes just as great cold!
