  • 1 T butter for sautéing
  • 1/2 large yellow onion diced
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic minced or grated
  • 1 head 8 cups of curly kale, sliced into thin ribbons
  • 1 can artichoke hearts rinsed and drained
  • 2 T butter for rue
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup Kraft shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup Kraft shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Kraft parmesan cheese


  • In a large pan, sauté the diced onion in butter for 8-10 minutes, over medium heat.
  • Drain and rinse the artichoke hearts. Give them a rough chop, you want to have large chunks.
  • Add garlic and artichoke hearts to the pan, sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Add thinly sliced kale, sauté for 2-3 minutes or until just slightly wilted.
  • Set kale mix aside. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel.
  • In the same pan, add 2 T butter. Once melted, add the flour, and stir for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the milk. Stir and let cook for 3-4 minutes until it starts to thicken.
  • Add 1 cup mozarella cheese, and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese. Stir until melted.
  • Add cayenne pepper, pepper and just a little dash of salt. The cheese is salty so you don't want to add too much.
  • Cook for 2 minutes or until everything is fully melted and combined.
  • Add the kale mixture into the cheese sauce. Stir to coat the kale in the sauce.
  • Preheat the over to 375 degrees.
  • Pour the dip into a small casserole dish, sprinkle 1/4 cup parmesan cheese on top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until hot and bubbly, and starting to lightly brown.
