Spinach Artichoke Dip Ingredients

You’ll need these six ingredients to make this dip recipe:

  • Artichoke Hearts – Drain and roughly chop your artichoke hearts. I prefer to use plain, but you can use marinated based on your preferences or what is available.
  • Spinach – I use a 10-ounce package of baby spinach that I roughly chop before adding to the dip mixture.
  • Cream Cheese – You can use low-fat cream cheese or the full-fat variety based on your preferences.
  • Mayonnaise, Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt – use whichever you prefer.
  • Cheeses – You’ll use both Parmesan and mozzarella cheese in this dip.
  • Stone House Seasoning – it adds so much flavor in a snap!

Step-by-Step Instructions

To make this Spinach Artichoke dip, I start with artichoke hearts that I drain and then roughly chop, along with softened cream cheese. My Mama’s recipe also calls for mayonnaise, but you can use sour cream or whole milk Greek yogurt in place of the mayonnaise, too. All taste delicious!

Then you’ll mix in the spinach. For the spinach, you can either use thawed frozen spinach or fresh chopped baby spinach. If using the frozen type, make sure it has thawed and press it through a mesh strainer to drain away the moisture. For fresh spinach, just roughly chop.

I then toss in my favorite seasoning mix of all time, my Stone House Seasoning. It adds so much flavor in a snap!

Next, you add in the cheeses.

Hold back about ½ cup of the Parmesan cheese to add to the top of the dip for baking.

Spread the dip into a shallow baking dish or transfer to a smaller slow cooker and top with the remaining Parmesan cheese.

Then, pop it into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or set your slow cooker to the low setting for 2 hours or the high setting for 1 hour. Since slow cookers can vary from brand to brand, I recommend checking every 30 minutes or so to make sure that the dip has not overcooked.

Serve warm with chips, crackers, veggies, or toast.

It even tastes great right off of the spoon, too.

  1. I bet it does tastes fabulous off the spoon and with chips and bread and well just about anything! Yum.

  2. A good warm spinach and artichoke dip has been on my recipe wish list for quite some time. Can’t wait to try this!

  3. This sounds delicious. I am definitely going to make it during one of our holiday snack days. Yummy!

  4. My hubby loves spinach artichoke dip… He’s always ordering it as an appetizer at our favorite restaurant. I have a recipe that I’ve made a few times, but I’ve never been completely happy with it. Definitely going to give yours a try!

  5. Do you use plain or marinated artichokes. Recipe said jar and that is usually the marinated ones while the plain ones are in cans

  6. 4 stars
    Does this freeze well? I live alone and would like to make this to have occasionally. As another person noted, I would probably eat the whole thing, unless I could freeze some.

    1. Yes, it will freeze well Leslie! Make sure it’s in an airtight container and it should be great! Enjoy! Thanks!

    1. Hi Lauren,
      There is a slight difference in the flavor of both – it just depends on your preference.
      I hope you enjoy it! Thanks!

  7. I love spinach/artichoke dip and order often in pubs. I think I’ll make my own using your recipe. What would be the exact amounts of salt/pepper/garlic added? 

  8. HELLO, WHAT IF I PREFER FRESH ARTICHOKE?… JUST BOIL THEM? INTEAD O THE 1 (14-ounce) jar artichoke hearts, drained and chopped?… THANK YOU

  9. Robyn,

    Made ghis recipe and put divided it into four small cast iron skillets for baking.  Took it to all our holiday parties as a hostess gift including the little fry pan,  Can’t even tell you how much everyone loved the little pan AND the artichoke dip.  Great fun and definitely a crowd pleaser.

    1. I love putting this is little skillets for entertaining too, JoAnn! That was a great idea for a hostess gift and for the party!!! I’m sure everyone loved it!
      Thanks so much for letting me know you enjoyed it, Jo Ann! Glad to hear from you! xo

    1. Hi Joyce,
      It’s my seasoning blend recipe that I use for so many of my recipes. It’s delicious – I hope you enjoy it! Thanks! xo

    Is that parmesan on top of the dish? Mine didn’t grate nor melt that way. Also, should the dip have a loose or stiff consistency?

    1. Hi Telsa,
      Yes, that is parmesan on top. The dip should not be stiff. It should be soft enough that you can dip baguettes, crackers, etc. into it easily. You should be able to see the texture on the video posted with the recipe. Thanks!
