Ingredients Needed:

  • Artichoke Hearts: I use canned artichoke hearts out of convenience, but you could use fresh cooked artichoke hearts if you have them.
  • Frozen Spinach: thaw first, and squeeze out the excess liquid. See recipe notes for how to substitute fresh spinach.
  • Mayonnaise.
  • Sour Cream.
  • Cream Cheese: allow it to come to room temperature so it mixes in smoothly. Low fat or Neufchatel cheese would also work.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Freshly grated tastes best and melts smoothly.
  • Garlic.

Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

To Make Ahead: Prepare the recipe through step 4 (before baking) and store it in the refrigerator for 1-2 days until ready to bake.

To Freeze: Prepare the recipe through step 4 (before baking).  Place mixture in a freezer safe container or bag and freeze for up to 2 months.  Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and return to baking dish before baking.

Recipe Variations:

  • Spinach Artichoke Dip with Fresh Spinach: Cook about 10 ounces of fresh spinach in a skillet with a little drizzle of olive oil. Once the spinach has cooked down, let it cool before squeezing the liquid out of it. I just get a big paper towel, scoop the spinach into it, and gently squeeze it over the sink.
  • Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip: Substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream and use low fat cream cheese.
  • Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip: Add everything to the slow cooker and cook on high for 2 hours. Stir well before serving.
  • Artichoke Dip without Spinach: use this Artichoke Dip recipe.
