Why This Recipe Works!

  • Oven or Crockpot – Once you mix together the dip you can either put it in the oven and have it ready in 20-30 minutes. Or you can put it in the crockpot to warm up over a couple hours and then keep warm if you are serving for a party.
  • Make Ahead – Mix everything together and cover in the fridge for 24 hours before you bake. This is great if you are getting ready for a party and want to get things done ahead of time.
  • Make it Your Own – As with just about any recipe you really can mix up the ingredients to make it your own. Switch up the cheeses, use fresh or frozen spinach, serve with whatever dippers you like!

What You’ll Need

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Mayo
  • Marinated Artichoke Hearts
  • Spinach – I like to use frozen because it is just easy. You do need to thaw and squeeze out the excess liquid or your dip will be watery. But you can also use fresh, see below for tips.
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Garlic
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt & Pepper

  3. Spread the dip in an oven safe baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or place in a small crockpot and heat over low for 2 hours. Then switch to warm to keep it hot for your event.

Recipe Tips

  • Using a mixer does make for a creamier and smoother dip. You are just able to mix the cream cheese with the sour cream and mayo together better.
  • Don’t want to use sour cream and mayo? Use Greek yogurt. The taste will change just a little bit (barely noticeable), but it works great.
  • If you want to use fresh spinach instead of frozen you will want to cook it first. You can steam or sauté it first. Just cook it, let it cool, chop and squeeze out any liquid.
  • You can make this dip ahead. Once it is ready to be cooked, cover and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours before baking or putting in the crockpot.
  • You want to try to use marinated artichoke hearts for this recipe. They are usually packed in oil (the canned ones are often packed in water), but also have some spices that give the artichokes more flavor. You do drain away the oil, but the flavor and spices remain, so it just adds more flavor to your tip.

What To Serve With Spinach Artichoke Dip

This is one of those dips that people like to eat with just about anything!

  • Crostini
  • Fritos Scoops
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Crackers
  • Chucks of Sourdough or other hearty bread.

Storage

If you happen to have leftovers after your party, you can store in an airtight container and in the fridge for 3-4 days. If you have just a little bit, I microwave to reheat and enjoy. But honestly, it is great cold too! If you have enough, you can reheat in the oven until warm.
