Bread Bowl Cheese Dip

You can certainly play around with the ingredients on this one - but wow, is it good!

Bread Bowl Cheese Dip
Serves 6-8

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

8 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped (I use turkey bacon - but only Oscar Mayer turkey bacon)
8 oz cream cheese, softened (I did use fat free!)
2 cups sour cream (I used low fat!)
14 oz can artichoke bottoms, chopped.  You can also use the hearts, I just like the bottoms better!
2 scallions, chopped
4 oz can green chilies
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (so...used full fat, it can't be ALL low fat!)
8 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and dried
1 round loaf of bread, hollowed out.  Reserve inside of bread for dipping later.
crackers, carrots, celery, etc to serve with the dip

Combine the bacon, cream cheese, sour cream, artichokes, scallions, green chilies, cheddar cheese, and spinach in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Pour mixture into hollowed out bread bowl, wrap in foil, and bake for 1 hour.  Serve with crackers, remaining bread pieces, carrots, etc.
