Artichoke Dip – Crock Pot Style

Artichoke dip has to be one of the most popular appetizers around, as evidenced by the fact that so very many restaurants include it on their menu.

This cheesy artichoke dip is simply the dip of all dips. It is just so savory and addictive. Well now you can get all of that creamy goodness from a crock pot!

The best part of using a slow cooker is that the dip can be made AHEAD OF TIME. So if you’re having a party, you can at least check tasty appetizer off of your list a little earlier in the day. Perfect, right?!

This is beautifully soft and creamy, so crackers and chips won’t break. Who’s ready to get their dip on?

Just Mix, Dump, and Slow Cook!

MIX. In a medium sauce pan, add the Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese and artichokes, stir. Add the sour cream, cream cheese, mayo and garlic. Turn the burner to medium- low heat. Stir the mixture until the cheeses have melted and ingredients have combined.

TRANSFER. Transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Fold in the sun dried tomatoes if you are using them.

COOK. Cook on High heat for 1-2 hours or Low heat for 3-4 hours. Serve immediately.

Additions: Sun dried tomatoes make a really delicious addition. Adding spinach, a dash of lemon pepper or thyme are also really yummy. To add a bit of heat try adding red chili flakes.

Favorite things to dip: This dip is deliciously cheesy and pairs well with both breads and veggies. Some of our favorites are:

  • Veggies: carrot sticks, celery, bell peppers, broccoli and cauliflower florets.
  • Crackers and Pretzels
  • Tortilla chips
  • Chunk/Slices of crusty bread like sourdough, french, crostini 
  • Potato wedges

Making Ahead + Storing

Make ahead: If you want to begin the dip the day before you certainly can. Once you have removed the dip from the stove transfer it to an airtight container. Keep it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

When you’re ready, place the dip in the crock pot to cook. 

Store Leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. The length of storage will depend on how long in advance you whipped up the dip. If you are reheating a large amount then you can reheat it in the crock pot or the oven set to 350°F. Mix the dip every so often until warm throughout.

For smaller amounts simply use the microwave. 😉

    My mom got me a side by side crock pot for Christmas. I made this dip and the Buffalo chicken dip for New Years. They were so yummy!

    Huge hit today for Thanksgiving. I think we could have just enjoyed the artichoke dip appetizers and skipped all the rest (well, maybe not the turkey)! Thanks for sharing!
