How do you make spinach artichoke dip?

Start by mixing up a creamy sauce that will be the backdrop for all the other yummy ingredients. This recipe calls for mayonnaise (though some spinach artichoke dips use cream cheese or sour cream) mixed with plenty of Parmesan cheese. Then add flavorful fixings, like the bell peppers, artichoke hearts and spinach. Once combined, drop into your dish, top with additional cheese and pop into a warm oven. In just 20 minutes, you’ll have a perfect creamy, cheesy dip that’s ready to share.

What do you serve with spinach artichoke dip?

Toasted baguette makes a fantastic accompaniment for this decadent dip, but assorted crackers work wonderfully too. If you’d like to mix things up, serve your spinach artichoke dip with warm triangles of pillowy pita bread. If you like a bit of crunch, try it with tortilla chips, regular potato chips, pita chips or baguette crisps. If you’re craving crisp veggies, serve it with carrot and celery sticks. However you serve it, it won’t last long!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is fresh or frozen spinach better for spinach artichoke dip?

Though you can substitute fresh spinach for this recipe, you may find that frozen spinach creates a smoother, more velvety texture. Just make sure to thaw your frozen spinach and squeeze out excess moisture before adding to the mixture, otherwise your spinach artichoke dip may end up thin and runny.

What can you add to spinach artichoke dip?

This delicious spinach artichoke dip features chopped red bell pepper for a colorful twist on the classic recipe. If you’re looking for additional ways to add extra flavor (not that it needs it!) try cooked bacon crumbles or a pinch or two of red pepper flakes for heat.

How do you store leftover spinach artichoke dip?

Leftover spinach artichoke dip will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days. Reheat the dip in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until warm. Or, reheat in an ovenproof dish covered with foil, in a 350°F oven until hot and bubbly. If it seems a little dry, add a splash of milk or cream and stir before reheating.
