Spinach Artichoke Dip


Happy New Year (week) everyone! Really I don’t get very excited about a new year, I don’t really do resolutions but the thing I always get excited about no matter what the holiday is the food! New Years Eve is all about party food and that includes every and any kind of dip. So of course I had to finally share my version of warm Spinach Artichoke Dip. This stuff is unbelievably delicious, you won’t know when to stop! It’s a good thing it’s rich because it makes it pretty filling so you won’t be able to eat the whole thing by yourself in one sitting :).

I like to eat this with tortilla chips but you can definitely use your favorite cracker or fresh baguette slices. I also love adding red pepper flakes because I love a little (or a lot of) heat in things. If you don’t want to buy the larger packages of spinach you could definitely get away with using a 6 oz bag, it won’t make a huge difference but I do like to use the baby spinach because it has a better flavor. One great thing about this dip (other than it’s seriously amazing flavor) is that fact that it’s so easy to make and it cooks on the stove top in under 10 minutes! What’s not to love here? Enjoy and Happy New Year everyone!

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Yield: About 8 servings


  • 1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts (in water)
  • 8 oz baby spinach , roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup half and half , then more as desired
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz cream cheese , diced into small cubes
  • 1 cup (3 oz) finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Tortilla chips , crackers or baguette slices, for serving


  1. Drain artichoke hearts then chopped into small pieces. Place on several layers of paper towels then squeeze some of the excess moisture from artichoke hearts.
  2. Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Add spinach, artichoke hearts and garlic and saute until spinach has just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat, add in half and half, sour cream, cream cheese cubes and parmesan cheese and return pan to medium heat and cook, stirring constantly (reducing heat just slightly if needed) until cheese has melted and dip is hot. Season with salt and pepper to taste, thin with more half and half if desired and sprinkle in red pepper flakes if desired. Serve warm with tortilla chips, crackers or baguette slices.

  • Julie: I agree with you – NYE is about the food! I’ve never seen/tried a spinach artichoke dip recipe with cream cheese so I’m excited to try this one. Did you use fresh spinach? I never seem to get all the moisture out of frozen spinach so using fresh spinach might solve that for me. December 29, 2015 at 9:12am Reply
