If you’re looking for a quick appetizer that’s a guaranteed crowd please, this Spinach Artichoke Dip is it! It only takes 30 minutes to prep and cook, can be made in advance, and I never have any left after a gathering! We love to serve it with crusty bread, crackers, or chips.

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.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

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.

    You seem to always have a recipe for something I need and are my go-to site for anything food related. I was asked to bring this to a friend’s party and was so pleased with how it turned out. Fast, easy, and delicious!

  3. 4 stars
    After reading some comments I went ahead and substituted some parm with an italian mozza blend of shredded cheese, with shredded parm on top. It was amazing! Will definitely make again!

  4. Made this last year with less parm. How many days in advance do you think this can be made and kept in the frig? Do you think the artichoke will discolor?
