I usually serve this dip as an appetizer but have enjoyed it as an evening snack when your longing for something with lots of flavor. Opinions vary as to whether it should be served hot or cold but I personally enjoy it hot from the oven with tostito chips or on crackers. If any dip is left over, which is not usual, I refrigerate it and enjoy it cold the next day if I can get to it before someone else does.

Discard skins. Mash roasted garlic with fork and add mayonnaise stirring well till blended. Drain artichokes and squeeze lightly to remove excess water.

Scoop mixture into two onion soup bowls and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of grated cheddar on top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 min. or till hot and bubbly. Serve with tostito rounds or crackers.
