Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

This Spinach and Artichoke Dip recipe is too easy; it's pretty much heating and mixing everything together. The best spinach and artichoke dip.

This recipe is too easy; it’s pretty much heating and mixing everything together. I love easy. My co-worker Jason brought this in to work one night and it was so good! I asked for the recipe and wrote it out (on a random piece of paper that later took me 2 days to find) as I was wolfing down the artichoke dip.

It’s funny how I crave this kind of stuff at night and I’m still losing weight (not that I’m endorsing this as a diet food; NOT AT ALL!), it’s probably the stress of starting as a new nurse and having a really messed up eating and sleep schedule. Back to this recipe. It brings some nice heat as it has jalapeños in it, but not an “I have to drink milk stat” kind of heat.

I should include this warning: make it only when there are plenty of people around to share it with, otherwise you will inevitably eat way way way too much (guilty).

    Looks yummy I wonder If You could use diced chilli’s instead of the Jalapeno, they have a better flavor and NOT spicy. Thanks Mom! Reply

      Ha ha, you called me Mom 🙂 I think you could try diced chilis instead. Sounds like a good substitute. Reply

  • My husband and I love spinach-artichoke dip, so I was really excited when I ran across your recipe on Pinterest! It is delicous!

    I created a spreadsheet a few years ago to help me with meal planning, and have been updating it with every new recipe we try and like. It now contains around 90 meals, each categorized by main ingredient (Beef, Chicken, pasta, etc) and meal type (Mexican, Italian, American, etc), with a link to the recipe – yours included! It has saved me so much time with meal planning and making out my grocery list!

    After talking with some friends, I thought this spreadsheet might be something worth sharing, so I have made it available from my blog to download for free! Now that my readers have your recipe, I’m sure they will be enjoying it as much as we do! Reply

    Love this recipe! While living in Alaska for 32 years, we made something similar. Yours is better except for one minor addition . . . try adding either Dungeness or King Crab and it would be amazing. We used crab meat often and it added a wonderful sweetness to the outcome of this great party dip. Reply

      Crab meat addition sounds amazing (but expensive). How much crab meat would you suggest adding? Thanks! Reply

    Used 2 lage fresh jalapeños and regular sour cream, a little salt, added 2 more cloves garlic and an extra 1/2 cup of romano cheese. It was excellent. It didn’t make it too hot. It was bland with out increasing some ingredients. Everyone loved it. We are picky! Reply
