Spinach Pepperoncini Dip

Spinach pepperoncini dip. in my head I wanted spinach artichoke dip but said ill check to see if we have artichoke hearts (which I know we did) . im on my way to the store then I think crap! I forgot to physically check to see if I have artichokes then I remember how sure I am that we in fact have artichokes. I get to the store do my list shopping and do my other shopping which consists of something unplanned that just draws my interest and I know it shouldn’t but will definitely end up in the cart. On the drive home I think crap! I forgot to even look for artichoke hearts to potentially buy had I happened to stumble upon them. I get home, get my trusty flashlight out and scour the pantry. No artichoke hearts. I see pepperoncini’s and pass them by. Four minutes later.. pepperoncini’s it is. After all that. Now introducing the best dip in the world (In my opinion, let me know below)
