Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip is one of those classic appetizers you can find at many restaurants, football house parties and family gatherings. We’ve tried many recipes over the years and this is absolutely the most delicious one ever! In fact, whenever I order spinach artichoke dip at a restaurant I’m always disappointed it doesn’t taste as good as this one. It is creamy, slightly spicy, and ideal for dipping all the things!

Learn to Love Artichokes

Don’t be afraid of artichokes, or spinach for that matter. If you’re skeptical, you must try this! Cooked artichokes have a mild, slightly nutty flavor, and the spinach just adds a delightful texture to this baked spinach artichoke dip. Paired with tangy cream cheese, tasty Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and a hint of red pepper flakes, you’ll soon discover why this dip is our favorite!

Suggestions for this Dip

  • The secret to perfect baked spinach artichoke dip is not over-mixing. Stirring the mixture too much could smash the artichokes and spinach. So make sure to mix ingredients until just combined.
  • This is the perfect recipe to make ahead of time! The flavors blend together better and better over time. It’ll stay nice and fresh in the fridge for up to a week. It even freezes well for up to two months. Just thaw in the fridge and reheat either in the microwave or oven.
  • If you swap out garlic powder for fresh garlic, try to use up the recipe within three days, as minced garlic can give off a bitter flavor after that.
  • To keep your dip from becoming watery or runny, thaw your spinach in warm water then squeeze it totally dry with paper towels.
  • We love using frozen spinach in this recipe, but you can use fresh spinach too! Chop one pound of fresh spinach, cook, then squeeze dry just as you would the frozen spinach.

    This dip does not last long at our house! I know that I need to double it because it is that Good!

  2. I am looking at the back of a package of Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix at a Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip which I would like to make. It says to bake for 35 minutes or until dip is hot. However, it does not instruct at what temperature to bake. The spinach will have been cooked so am I merely heating the dish and melting the cheese? Thank you.

    1. Thank you for pointing out that the baking time and temperature are missing from this recipe! We have fixed it. The baking time is 15 minutes at 300 degrees.

    This dish always gets the best compliments and I've never had to bring home leftovers. Would make a GREAT football snack. Some think its a girlie appetizer but the guys secretly love it just as much as the girls. 😉
