spinach and 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 go 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:
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 spinach dip?
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:
- 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)
Are you drooling too? If not, you should be!! We really hope you love this dip recipe as much as we did. 😉 I’m seriously so excited to make this again. It’s so good!! And what’s great is it reheats well too, which is always a bonus. 😉
