Artichoke Dip: the go-to party dip!

We love appetizers at our house and love to make them for parties, get togethers and holidays!

We always spend New Year’s Eve putting together a ton of appetizer and dip recipes to enjoy that night, and I wanted to share one of our favorites with you today – Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip!

Ever since I can remember, artichoke dip has been one of my favorite appetizers, and it’s one we often get when we got out on hot dates. This cheesy dip has become one of our go-to’s (along with Buffalo Chicken Dip and Cream Cheese Bean Dip).

This recipe is very simple, only requires a small handful of ingredients, and can be put together in just a few minutes. The most time consuming part is waiting for it to bake in the oven!

How to Make Spinach Artichoke Dip - spinach artichoke dip ingredients

How to Make Spinach Artichoke Dip:

This dip takes MAYBE 5 minutes to mix all the ingredients together before baking in the oven – which is THE most important step. The spinach and artichokes soften and the cheeses and creamy ingredients get sooo warm and gooey, and it is just the best. I’m drooling even thinking about it.

MIX. To make the dip, mix parmesan cheese, spinach, and artichoke hearts in a bowl.

BAKE. In a separate bowl, mix together sour cream, cream cheese, mayo, and garlic. Add to spinach mixture and mix everything until well combined. Pour into 8×8 pan and bake for 25 minutes at 375°.

SERVE WARM. This baked spinach artichoke dip is definitely best warm, and we promise it won’t last very long – it’s that good!

Can you use CANNED spinach? You can definitely used canned spinach for this spinach dip recipe. Just make sure to drain it and squeeze out the extra liquid.

Can you use FRESH spinach? You can use fresh spinach too! Just chop up the spinach and throw it into the recipe. The spinach will cook down while the artichoke dip is baking in the oven.

PARTY PREP FAQ

Can spinach artichoke dip be made ahead of time? You can definitely make this dip ahead of time, and it’s something we do often. Just make the dip as instructed and place in your dish. Cover in the fridge for up to 24 hours before baking.

Can artichoke dip be made in the crock pot? You can definitely turn this in to a crock pot version. Make as directed by combining all the ingredients. Place in a greased slow cooker and heat on LOW for 3-4 hours or on HIGH for 2 hours.

Can you freeze this recipe? We DO NOT recommend freezing this recipe since mayonnaise and sour cream typically do not freeze well. Test by freezing a small batch for 24 hours to see how well it does.

What to serve with it?

We are boring and typically serve tortilla chips with our artichoke dip, but there are other items that go great with it too. Some of those include:

  • crackers
  • veggies – cucumbers, carrots, celery, peppers
  • bread slices or cubes (toasted crostini works great or so do slices of french bread!)
  • Pita chips and other corn chips
  • Grissini (cracker like bread sticks)

    1. I made it the night before but I did not cook it I just put it in the refrigerator overnight. I cooked it the next day right before the party. It turned out just fine.

  1. I did tonight actually! It turned out fantastic! I tweaked it a little bit and didn’t use mayo. But I’m sure it would be wonderful with it! I did it on high for 2 hours and it was delicious! Fast and easy and I didn’t have to worry about keeping it warm!

    1. I made this and it is Such an amazing dip!!The key to a successful dip is to drain the spinach well. Put the pieces on a paper towel , roll it up and squeeeeeeze. This prevents a soggy, wet dip. This dip 11/10!

  2. I used one block of cream cheese, I bag of fresh Baby Spinach, and added 2T of Dijon Mustard- all else the same. Delicious!!!

  3. I make the Cheesy Spinach &Artichoke Dip all the time and everybody always loves it!!!!!!???????????????????? It is the best thank you.

  4. Yummy! Made it for Thanksgiving get together—everyone loved it! For Christmas lunch they asked me to bring the tasty spinach artichoke dip…making tonight, again for New Year’s Eve. Thank you for sharing ????????

  5. Do you think it would be ok to make it in the oven and transfer to a crock pot on warm? I am bringing to a party, and I’d like for it to stay hot and I am not sure I want to make it in the crockpot, just to stay warm


  6. Made this a few days ago and it was so yummy! The family gobbled it up. I added a sprinkle of garlic powder too since I love garlic. This was so simple and tasty. Thank you.


  7. This looks delicious. Thank you so much for sharing – there really is nothing like a great spinach artichoke dip. I’ve been wanting to make my own at home for ages now. Can’t wait to try this one and share it with my family!


  8. A great classic recipe for a dip that everyone seems to like, even people who think they don’t like spinach or artichokes. I made this early in the day and kept it in the fridge until an hour before serving. Then I brought it to room temperature and baked for the specified time. You just have to be sure to really squeeze the liquid out of the spinach and artichokes. Thanks for a great recipe!

  9. I c for ur spinach artichoke dip, it says serve immediatly, Taking this to a potluck, it will sitting in shade for a hr. will it be ok to eat.

    1. Oh, wow..I haven’t make this for that many. I would maybe triple or quadruple it. I mean..not everyone may want to have it or they may just take a scoop. You could always make more than needed & freeze leftovers. Hope it’s a hit!


  10. Made this for a group gathering and it was delicious! I used fresh spinach that I cooked on the stove top and it turned out great.


  11. Thanks for the spinach artichoke dip recipe. It was one of my favorites 20 and 30 years ago, and I was wondering how much of the other ingredients I put in it. I used to very lightly blanch broccoli spears to use for eating the dip (always interested in health). Love your attitude!


  12. I could eat this cold or warm!! It was so good!! We had tortilla chips on hand, but these would be great with crackers or bread. I can’t wait to make it again!


  13. Artichokes are not my favorite thing to handle. BUT I’ll do it again and again for a recipe this good! We love to eat the spinach dip at Charlestons and this one is just as great! And cheaper 🙂


  14. This is a perfect appetizer to serve at a dinner party. I liked it best served with different types of bread. So warm and heavenly!!!


  15. We love the spinach artichoke dip at ChaRlestOns. This is just as good with all the right combinations for a cheesy,gooey,hoT dip served with tortiLla chips.


  16. This stuff is scary delicious! I can only make it when I’m taking it to a party, because I cannot stop myself from eating it!


  17. One of our go to recipes for a quick and eaSy appetizer. Its simply oNe of thE best coming right out of the oven. Serve with chips or crackers.


  18. I’ve been making this exact recipe for so many years. It was passed down to me from family. Been a staple in the family forever! Love it so much. Wish the nutrition label said how much was in each servings. That’s how I came across this page was looking for nutrition on my recipe as I knew many have this same recipe cause it’s so yummy!
