You guys this spinach artichoke dip recipe is pretty much party food/appetizer perfection. Plus it’s SO easy to make in either the crockpot or on the stove! This plus my easy chocolate covered strawberries are my party must haves!

Chips and dip may very well be my favorite food. Honestly I love all party foods I love a fresh guacamole salsa , delicious and easy chili, or even homemade pizza or lasagna soup. Seriously I love a good dip with a crunchy vehicle.

Its by far my favorite kind of food!

More Delicious Appetizer Recipes

  • World’s Best Guacamole– the secret ingredient and special prep technique really push it over the top
  • Delicious Bean Dip– this is actually just homemade refried beans but trust me they are magical. Creamy and rich and served with chips they are the best. You can layer them in a 7 layer dip or serve them warm like I do as a dip on their own.
  • Buffalo Chicken Dip – its just as easy and throwing everything into the crock pot but the flavor that comes out is amazing
  • Chili Cheese Pigs in a Blanket – These are so easy and a delicious heartier item to have in your appetizer spread
  • Cowboy Caviar– a light refreshing mix of beans, corn and avocado perfect for serving with chips

But sadly not all dips (or chips for that matter) are created equally.But let me tell you this one right here is SO good and it can be made in the crock pot if you want.

This dip is warm and cheesy and delicious. I have taken it to several pot luck and served it at many parties. Every single time I get asked for the recipe.

Thankfully it’s so easy I don’t mind at all that people always beg me to make this yummy treat.

Spinach Artichoke Dip Ingredients

  • 8 oz light cream cheese (full fat is fine but I used light)
  • 16 oz light sour cream (same you can use full fat if you want)
  • 1 stick (1/2 C) butter
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove excess liquid
  • 14 oz Artichoke Hearts
  • 4oz diced chilies , mild drained (don’t worry this doesn’t make it spicy AT ALL pinky promise)
  • 1 1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 C grated Romano cheese
  • 1 TBS chopped garlic

A quick word about the ingredients. This does not have a spicy flavor or kick to it. But the chilies do add a little something to the overall flavor. I would serve this to the most spice sensitive people without worrying.

20 month old Teddy gobbled this down without a blink. Also you could just use all Parmesan cheese but I do like the depth of flavor you get by using the Romano.

How to Make Spinach Artichoke Dip

Depending on how much time you have there are a couple ways you can make this tasty treat. Both methods turn out great!

This makes enough to fill a 2 quart crock pot.

Easiest Method for the Crock Pot

  1. Chop artichokes.
  2. Drain off any excess liquid from spinach and chilies.
  3. Combine everything in crock pot and allow to heat through (about 40 minutes).

If you are not in a hurry you could easily make this in a crock pot and save one dish to clean. Just put it on high until the cheese is all melted through and then stir and turn to low or warm.

Fast Method on the Stove or Instant Pot

  1. Combine the cheeses, butter, and sour cream in a pot over medium heat (use the sautéed function on the Instant pot). Heat until melted and combined.
  2. While the cheese is melting drain and chopthe artichokes and drain any excess liquid off of the spinach.
  3. Stir the spinach, artichokes,chilies, and garlic into the cheese.
  4. Serve warm.

I’m usually running late when we are taking this to a party. So typically I’ll whip this up on the stove or using the sauté mode in my instant pot since it’s so fast and then scoop it into my small crock pot so that I can plug it in when we get to our destination to warm it back up and keep it melty and hot during the get-together

I took this to my husband’s work Christmas party this year and it was devoured fast.

We had to leave early to get Teddy down and there was about one big scoop left and I couldn’t help but just take it with instead of leave it haha. I just finished it off as a blog writing snack and seriously reheated in the microwave it was just as good.

I think I’m in trouble with this spinach artichoke dip recipe it’s just too easy to make and so so good. We might have to pull it back out for New Years Eve if I can resist not making it again for Christmas ha!
