Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip
Our rich and creamy Spinach and Artichoke Dip recipe is quick and easy to make. Simply stir cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, and cheese with the spinach and artichoke hearts, spoon it into a skillet, and bake it into the best game day appetizer for feeding a crowd.
This homemade hot spinach and artichoke dip tastes so much better than any store-bought kind of cold spinach artichoke dip; plus, if you prepare it in a crock pot, it’s perfectly portable and travels well so you can heat it up at home and bring it wherever you’re headed.
Although this artichoke spinach dip only takes just 5 minutes to put together, it provides hours of delicious dipping and eating (and even tastes as good at the end of the evening as it did from the start).

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 work as well (but trust me, go for the full-fat).
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Grated parmesan cheese
- Sour cream
See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
Substitutions and Additions
- Serve It Spicy: Add a few shakes of hot sauce or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes if you want to add some heat.
- Cut The Calories: You can substitute Greek yogurt or light sour cream for the full fat sour cream and use light cream cheese and light mayonnaise to cut a few calories.
- Fill With More Flavor: Feel free to mix in some garlic, green onion or chives, or fresh herbs (like basil, parsley, or thyme).
How to Make Spinach Artichoke Dip
- Make The Mixture: Stir together all ingredients until well-blended.
- Bake: Spoon the mixture into your prepared baking dish and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
- Serve And Scoop: Serve with pita chips or toasted baguettes. Enjoy!
How To Make slow cooker Or Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip
Making a crock pot spinach artichoke dip is just as easy as baking it in the oven! Add all of your ingredients to your slow cooker and heat on low for 3-4 hours. Give it a stir and you’ll have a warm dip all day!
Tips For Making The Best Spinach & Artichoke Dip
- Make sure your cream cheese is softened to room temperature before you start 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 you can before adding it to the dip so 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 Store Spinach Artichoke 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..
How To Serve Spinach Artichoke Dip
- 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 in a bread bowl! Don’t discard the top of the bread bowl because it can be broken into pieces for dipping.
