Artichoke and Crab Spread

I bought a similar spread at the grocery store a while back, and I thought that I could do it better and cheaper myself. You can use imitation crab, instead of the real thing if you like. I use cooked and frozen artichoke hearts or you can buy fresh artichokes, and cook the hearts up yourself.

Original recipe makes 3 cups


3 frozen cooked artichoke hearts, thawed and quartered
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
4 ounces crabmeat
3 green onions
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
