  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Blend with a fork until all the ingredients are smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the artichokes and Maine Lobster. Blend them in trying not to break them up much. (It will taste better to leave them somewhat in tact.)
  4. Bake in a pan at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. It should be lightly browned and bubbling.
  5. Serve with nacho chips, on crackers, or in a bread bowl. All are wonderful!
