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).

    Skipped the jalapenos, reduced the sour cream by half, and added some ground pepper and red pepper flakes. Melted the butter on low and then added everything else all at once and slowly melted it, avoiding any “cooking” or bubbles. Just so stinking DELICIOUS! Reply

    Your recipe says a stick of butter (8 tablespoons), but your picture shows half a stick of butter. It was pretty oily to me, so is it 1/2 stick of butter? Reply

      Hi Dianna, that is a full stick (8Tbsp) of butter in the photos. There are 2 shapes of butter sticks normally – 1 is long and skinny (from Costco) and a shorter thicker stick of butter from most grocery stores. Reply

    I have been using this recipe since I found it here and it is amazing! The only thing I don’t understand is why your recipe calls for half of all the ingredients I use.. hmm…
    Haha just kidding! I have to literally double the ingredients every time I make it. This dip never lasts long at our house or any of the parties we take it to. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe and giving me a dip that everyone begs me to make again and again! Reply

    How much Fresh Baby Spinach do I sub for the 10 oz of frozen spinach Reply

      January 1, 2018

      Hi Brenda, I haven’t tried this with fresh spinach but I assume it is the same amount by weight. Incase you missed it, one of my readers, Victoria, shared her very helpful review on that: “I have made this dip probably a half dozen times or more. I have used fresh spinach and fresh grated Parmesan every time. Works great and so yummy! No need to squeeze anything. Just trim the stems, rough chop and add it in. The heat causes it to wilt just enough.” I haven’t tried baking it only because it requires stirring to get the cream cheese dissolved and to blend everything. Once everything is blended, it does not require any additional lengthy cooking. Reply

      • Victoria
        January 1, 2018

        I use anywhere from 6 to 10 ounces of fresh spinach; just depends on how much I have on hand.

        I’ve also baked it. If baked I heat it on the stove just long enough to melt the cream cheese and wilt the spinach then transfer to a casserole dish and bake. I only do this when entertaining for the sake of presentation. Normally I’m anxious to start eating it long before I get it baked! Reply

    I just made this last night and toasted some baguettes to go with it. Oh my goodness this is great! So great that I woke up this morning craving it for breakfast! I will say I can taste the difference between using sour cream instead of mayonnaise like some other spinach dip recipes call for but I would rather opt for using the reduced fat sour cream. Anyway, this was great and super easy to make! I’ll definitely use this as my go-to spinach and artichoke dip. Thank you! Reply

    I have made this several times after a friend shared on Facebook. I LOVE the addition of the jalapenos. When I am feeling guilty I have made it with non fat cream cheese, and non fat plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. Believe it or not it worked great! I have also stuffed chicken breasts with this dip and wrapped bacon around the breasts to hold in all the yummy goodness. Oh my! Reply

        Please do. It’s amazing and I have gotten so many compliments on it. We always grill them, but I would love to figure out how to bake them and get the same results. I’m afraid the bacon won’t be crisp and the filling will run out if I try baking them. Reply

    Just made this today. My honest opinion is that this recipe is not what I was hoping for. It tasted OK but the sour cream was a bit much. If I ever make it again (probably not likely), I would use no more than 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sour cream. way too tart for my taste. Reply

      Hi Abby! I haven’t had anyone say it was too tart and this is our most popular dip recipe. Did you possibly substitute any of the ingredients or omit something, change proportions, etc? You can definitely experiment with less sour cream if you prefer. Reply

        Hey Natasha! I didn’t change anything at first. I even made absolutely sure that all my ingredients were fresh because I intended to save some for a later day. After I tasted it a few times, I tried to alter it with no luck. My son liked it but also prefers less sour cream. When I make it again I will let you know how it turns out.

      I just made this for the second time and actually made it with the correct measurements(the ones listed) and had the same experience 🙁 the first time I made it I made it with only 8oz of sour cream(I grabbed it on accident) and it turned out much smoother and cheesier. This time it’s a liquify mess. I was so looking forward to it too 😭 Reply

        Hi Jen! I would say about 4.5 hours on high. I think 4 hours on high would be fine. I literally just chopped the canned artichokes, dumped everything in the crock pot, set it on high, then left for a comedy show. I was in a huge rush, so I didn’t even defrost the spinach, I just tossed it in frozen & prayed lol. It worked out just fine for me! 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

      Due to time constraints, I don’t typically include nutritional info, but check out this nutrition analyzer – you can plug in the ingredients from any recipe, select the serving size and it will give you nutritional info, calories, etc. I hope that is helpful to you Sylvia! Reply

    Natasha, I just ate at a restaurant something called shrimp brochette which are shrimp stuffed with spartichoke dip and jalapeños wrapped in bacon. When I looked for the dip via the ingredients, I found your artichoke dip that was exactly what the restaurant also sold as SPARTICHOKE dip. You’ve got to change the name of your dip to spartichoke. It would be so cool. Same ingredients. Reply

      Hi Tina, I like using frozen because it’s easy to squeeze out any excess liquid when it thaws. I think you could make fresh spinach work but I always use frozen-thawed. Reply

      Tina – I’ve made this with fresh spinach and it’s really good! I purchase the baby spinach, chop it up, and just throw it in like the frozen. It’s easier in my opinion because I hate squeezing out the frozen spinach block. Reply

      Hi Ali, If using fresh, it releases a good amount of liquid as it wilts which can change the color, consistency and flavor of the dip. If using fresh, I would recommend wilting it on a dry skillet then squeezing out the excess moisture and coarsely chopping it before adding. Reply

    Most recipes have half the amount of cream cheese and no sour cream, instead they have 10 oz. of Alfredo sauce like how Applebee’s makes it.

    This was so yummy when I made it tonight! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I believe I accidentally used a larger bag of spinach and a larger jar of jalapeños but it still turned out amazing. We ate it with Stacey’s bagel chips and those paired perfectly. Will definitely be making this again! Reply

      That just probably made it healthier. I bet this was amazing with bagel chips. Yummmm!! Reply

    I was so excited to make this recipe since people are coming over to our house and watch the football game. I followed all your ingredients, measurements and procedures, but it came out too sour! It is edible, but there is just an ingredient or two (might be the sour cream? or amount of parmesan cheese?) that is overpowering. Didn’t know how to fix the taste since this is my first time making this recipe. Only a quarter of it got eaten : ( Reply

      The most likely culprit: Did you possibly use marinated artichoke hearts instead of plain? The marinated ones are way more sour and that could easily take it over the top. Let me know if that was it! Reply
