We love artichoke dips around here, like our shrimp artichoke dip, most popular one-pot spinach artichoke dip and even this skinny artichoke dip.
Major thank you and high five to Sam’s Club and Hellmann’s for sponsoring this recipe and creating a product that got baked into this creamy goodness!
Ingredients for Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip:
There are literally 5 ingredients in this baked spinach and artichoke dip and it comes together so quickly.
We used a can of UN-MARINATED artichoke hearts. The marinated ones are just a bit too salty for this recipe.
Also, chopped frozen-thawed spinach works best for this recipe and be sure to use REAL mayo.
How to Make Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip:
1. Thaw frozen spinach then squeeze it dry with your hands. Drain and coarsely chop artichokes.
2. Stir together: drained & chopped artichoke, squeezed spinach, 1 cup mayo, 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1 pressed garlic clove and transfer to a 1-quart casserole or pie dish. Sprinkle on remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.
3. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes at 350˚F or until heated through. Serve with your favorite crostini, chips, or crackers. Yum!
My 5-yr old son kept sneaking samples while I was photographing this baked spinach artichoke dip so I let him be the hand model, and he was very happy to help. I’ll have you know he was fairly compensated ($0.25) and he plans to use his earnings for a gum ball.
Here’s how the scene went; “Ok, a little lower, bring it back down to the plate. Perfect!” x 3 takes (and 3 hefty loaded samples for the little guy – I have a feeling he wasn’t in it for the quarter ;).
Before I could say another word, he shoved this loaded cracker right into my mouth and said, “for the Baby” (I was pregnant). Hang on,.. let me re-live that moment…. mmm. 🙂

Can I use 100% grated Parmesan cheese which comes in a jar, instead of fresh Parmesan cheese? If so, what amount would I use in the Spinach Artichoke Dip recipe. Thanks, I love your cooking shows!
Hi Sharon, I haven’t tested that but I think that could work! If you experiment please let me know how you like that.
can you use something else other then Mayo?
Hi Sherry, I don’t think this particular recipe would work without mayo, but you might try this spinach and artichoke dip instead if you want one without mayo.
Very good. Allergic to eggs so this recipe works for me
I add chopped water chestnuts for crunch. Very good. Thanks
I love that idea! Thank you for sharing.
I have an egg allergy too. Real Mayonnaise has eggs but I used Hellamann’s Vegan Mayo and it worked out great!
I’ve added avocado to it and it tastes soooo delicious! You should try it. This is my favorite easy dish! Thank you for sharing your recipes 🙂
That’s so great! I’m so happy you have a favorite on our blog! Thank you for sharing that awesome review with me!
Can you prepare a day ahead?
HI Debbie, yes this spinach artichoke dip can be made ahead since it reheats really well 🙂
Natasha, would the taste change significantly if use Marinated Artichoke? Bought the wrong one by mistake. Thank you!
Hi Lesya, it would taste more salty/tangy. I would suggest using a little less mayo and maybe sub some of it some sour cream.
Is there any reason I can’t used fresh spinach?
Hi Julie, I haven’t tried this specific version with fresh but I think it could work; you’ll want to chop it before adding it and ideally, give it a quick steam-cook on the stove until it’s soft and wilted then drain off any excess liquid.
Excellent recipe. Family favorite.
Awesome! I’m glad to hear that! 🙂
Next time you make this add 1 cup of shredded mozzarella. I promise you won’t be sorry!
Great tip! Thanks for sharing Debra!
I used this as the base for a main dish by adding Penne and grilled chicken. My kids didn’t even complain about the ‘new’ veggies. Everyone loved it and asked for seconds!
That is so creative and smart! Thank you for sharing your meal idea with us!

I’m so glad you loved it! Thanks for sharing your modifications. I’ll have to give that a try. Sounds delicious! 🙂
Can I use best foods mayo?
Best Foods is actually the same thing as Hellmann’s Mayo west of the rockies. 🙂 So, yes, ofcourse! 🙂
You just read my mind!
This is the perfect appetizer for New Year’s Eve.
I hope 2015 is very good to you and your family. xo
Aww thanks so much Coco! Same to you! 🙂
So could you put. Jalapeños in it like the other recipe to give it a spice? It looks so amazing!
Oh yes, definitely! I love jalapeños. I didn’t add them because I wanted my son to enjoy it too and he doesn’t have much of a spice tolerance ;).
Looks Soooooo Good:)
Thank you Veronika! 🙂
I’m weak in the knees for creamy spinach artichoke dips! I can only make it when there are plenty of guests (like holidays and now!) to help me eat it, or I will literally devour the entire thing. This looks fab, Natasha! 🙂
I’m exactly the same way; I can’t be trusted alone with a batch of this dip ;).
Can’t think of a better dip to serve for NYE than this baked spinach and artichoke dip! Thanks for the recipe!
It’s perfect for New Years! 🙂 Have an awesome New Year’s Eve!!

Thank you so much Zina! Happy New Year to you as well! 🙂
Will it work with fresh spinach?

*Gasp* This looks mouthwatering!!! Will be making soon!
Now that is the reaction I was looking for! 😉 Thanks Julia 🙂
Wow! This looks delicious! Perfect dip for the New Years! Love your pictures! 🙂
Thank you so much Valya :). It’s easy when you have a cute hand model 😉
Yummie! Reminds me of a spinach dip I make. I also love to add little bit of sour cream for extra creaminess.
Mmmm sounds nice! You can’t go wrong with making something extra creamy! 🙂
