Spinach Artichoke Dip Ingredients

  • Frozen chopped spinach
  • Artichoke hearts drained
  • Cream cheese: I used a brick of full fat cream cheese because it makes my dip extra rich, but low fat will also work (but trust me, go for the full-fat).
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sour cream

Artichoke Spinach Dip Recipe Variations

Make this Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe in the Slow Cooker!

Making a crock pot spinach artichoke dip is as easy as baking it in the oven! Add all your ingredients to your slow cooker and heat on low for 3-4 hours. Stir it and you’ll have a warm dip all day!

Tips for Making Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip

  • Ensure your cream cheese is softened to room temperature before mixing the ingredients. Otherwise, it won’t incorporate well.
  • Make sure your spinach is thawed and pat dried. Try to squeeze out as much moisture as possible before adding it to the dip so it doesn’t get watery.
  • I use jarred artichoke hearts for convenience and to save time in the kitchen, but you can cook and chop fresh artichokes if you prefer.

How to serve this Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

  • Scoop It: Scoop your dip with pita chips, tortilla chips, toasted baguettes, crackers, carrots sticks and other veggies, or any of your other favorite foods.
  • Stuff It: You can stuff this artichoke and spinach dip into a grilled cheese sandwich to make it feel gourmet and grown-up, use it as a filling for a tortilla and cook it up like a quesadilla, or spoon it in a pita pocket for a tasty twist on the traditional sandwich.
  • Load It In A Loaf: This dip is always a hit when you hollow out a round loaf of bread and serve it in a bread bowl! Don’t discard the top of the bread bowl because it can be broken into pieces for dipping.

How to store Artichoke and Spinach Dip

  • To Store: Cool and store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze spinach artichoke dip for up to three months. However, I don’t recommend it — the creamy ingredients will separate and become watery during the freezing and thawing process.
  • To Reheat: Reheat in the oven or gently in the microwave or oven until warm and bubbly..

Artichoke Spinach Dip Recipe FAQs

Can I prepare my dip in advance?

Yes, you can prepare this dip in advance. Mix all the ingredients together, but don’t bake it! Store it in the fridge for a day or two, and then bake it right before serving.

Can I use fresh spinach instead of frozen spinach?

Yes, you can use fresh spinach; however, frozen spinach works best because it has a slightly more intense flavor than fresh spinach. Also, it means you can skip the step of cooking and chop fresh spinach. If you prefer fresh spinach, chop it up and sauté it briefly in a skillet to cook out some moisture, then continue with the recipe as stated.

How can I make the dip creamier?

For an extra creamy texture, you can add a bit more sour cream or cream cheese. Adjust to your preference!
