The Best Party App Ever: Bite-Size Artichoke Dip!

Everyone likes artichoke dip. But here's how to LOVE it: Make it bite-size and fry it up! We wrapped dollops of artichoke dip in wonton wrappers and lightly fried them to get the crunch of a cracker and gooey cheese-iness of the artichoke dip all in one, mess-less bite that you can pop right into your mouth. Appetizer heaven!

Bite-Size Artichoke Dip Poppers

  • Yield: 3 dozen
  • Prep time: 30 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cans artichoke hearts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 c mayonnaise
  • 1 c grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp chives, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • wonton wrappers (about 3 dozen)
  • vegetable oil


  • Combine the artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, parmesan, juice of ½ of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of the zest, a big pinch of salt and lots of freshly ground pepper in a food processor. Pulse together into a fairly smooth texture.
  • In a deep, heavy-bottomed pot, preheat oil to 375 degrees F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, lay out the wonton wrapper (keeping the stack of wrappers covered with a damp paper towel.) Spoon a tablespoon of the dip into the center of the wonton wrapper, and then using a dampened finger, moisten the edges. Fold over, and without trapping air in the pocket, seal the popper. Repeat, covering the assembled poppers with a damp paper towel until finished.
  • Fry the poppers for 2 minutes, until golden brown and crisp. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and season immediately with salt. Slice the remaining lemon half and squeeze over the poppers and enjoy.
