Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag of fresh spinach, stemmed, rinsed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 cans of artichoke hearts, julienned
  • Salt and cayenne
  • 10-15 small corn tortillas, cut into fourths
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Preheat the fryer. Combine 1/4 cup of the vegetable oil and flour, in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir the mixture constantly for 5 to 6 minutes for a blond roux. Whisk in the milk and bring the liquid up to a boil. Season the liquid with salt and cayenne. Simmer the liquid for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the liquid is thick and coats the back of a spoon. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the cheeses. Set the sauce aside. In a saute pan, heat the remaining vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in handfuls of spinach at a time, until all the spinach is incorporated. Add the garlic and artichoke and saute for 2 minutes. Season the vegetables with salt and cayenne. Remove the vegetables from the heat and turn into a mixing bowl. Fold the Bechamel sauce into the vegetables. Turn the mixture into a baking pan. Bake the dip for 10-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Fry the tortilla chips, batches at a time, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the chips are golden and crispy. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the chips with the dip.
