Best Homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip!

At at least one party chances are you’ve tried the store-bought chilled spinach artichoke dip, the cold kind that’s jam packed with mayo. This version is served warm and melty and 100 times better!

Spinach artichoke dip is my favorite kind of savory dip. It has so much flavor, I love the flavor pairing of veggies, and who can resist all that cheese?

This is the ultimate party dip! I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t love it.

If you start eating this before dinner it may just quickly become my dinner because you can’t stop eating it!

I shared a stove-top version a few years ago but this baked version has become my go-to. You’ll love how there’s no tending to this method, just mix and bake.

    Added hamburger and spaghetti sauce. Then stuffed pasta shells with mixture. WOWWW!

    Mine came out great but it tasted quite tangy. Any tips for A less tangy batch next time?

      You could try a different brand of cream cheese or replace some cream cheese with half ricotta, then even use a little more mozzarella in place of some Parmesan.

  • Karen sponsler

    It got to thick I like it a little creamy so what did I do wrong and what can I add to make it not so thick

      You can thin it out with some milk next time. Maybe it would be helpful to strain the spinach a little less.

    Made this for a birthday party and it came out so good! I’m not a stranger to making Artichoke dips and have made many, but thought I would look to see how others make it this time. I’m so glad I did. Yum!

    I doubled it for the party as I was uncertain how many people would be there… which turned out to be unnecessary. The benefit to that however was I had more to take home :). People at the party really liked it and I’ll be making it again and again for sure. This recipe I definitely saved in my personal recipe keeper.

    Some Tips & Suggestions:
    Because I doubled it, I used one jar of marinated artichoke hearts and one can that was not marinated. I really liked the flavor and suggest it highly. I may go all marinated next time as well. I drained them well, btw, but did not rinse or squeeze any excess moisture out of them.

    I also lightly salted my draining spinach, and let it rest for at least 15 minutes, to allow the salt to help expel some of the spinach’ excess moisture before squeezing it out.

    Lastly, a little tip for those that may need this — If your grocery store does not carry blocks of Parmesan cheese and you have no other options but the commercial pre-shredded stuff, this recipe is still doable. Generally pre-shredded or pre-grated cheese is a no-no in cooked sauces and baked dips. The anti-caking cellulose powder on the cheese (to keep it all from sticking) does not lend itself well to blending and emulsifying. Think “anti-caking” = “anti-blendy”. IF you have a powerful Ninja style blender (smoothy size, not larger, for this one), then blending the pre-shredded cheese down to near powder form helps – Start out with as large of a cheese shred size as you can when purchasing. Ninja-ing the pre-shredded cheese breaks open all of the cheese that’s not coated by the cellulose and dilutes, in a sense, the powder-to-cheese ratio. The now finer blend size also gives a much higher emulsion success rate. I unfortunately found myself needing to do this with this recipe, and can confirm the method worked beautifully. Could not even tell I used pre-shredded cheese 👍🏻 – I hope this helps someone out.

    Delicious, funny because I’ve made this kind of dip many times over the years but always look up recipe before I make it. Grey hair does that, the only thing I did different was to use fresh spinach and jarred artichokes. Thanks.

  • Dave Poulin

    I’m not sure if I’m blind but I do not see any amounts to ingredients on this recipe

      Sorry for any confusion. Click the recipe button at the top or scroll down the page a ways to a recipe box. Enjoy!

    Thanks, sounds tasty. I have never heard of this – presumably only popular in USA.

    I’m interested from a low carb (diabetes) point of view, so not bothered by the high fat/calories and will omit the tortilla, etc. recommendations when I make this.
