This Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip is creamy, cheesy, and loaded with flavor! It's easy to make and everyone at your game day party will love it!
You can never go wrong with a good dip. They have their place at every get together, whether it's game day, a picnic, or a holiday party.
They can be scooped into hungry mouths with bread, vegetables, chips, or crackers. They can be spicy, or mild. Sweet, or savory.
They can be made with vegetables, cheese, or legumes. They can be made to accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions or food preferences. They are just plain versatile and everyone loves them, and this Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip is no exception.
This veggie filled dip is easy to make and requires minimal prep, as it uses frozen versions of both spinach and artichokes. Simply cooking the artichokes in the microwave, and thawing and draining the spinach before quickly chopping both is all the work that's needed on your part.
Then a quick stir to mix in the cheese (3 different types) and seasonings, and it's ready to go into the oven.
When this zesty dip comes out of the oven, it's cheesy and melty. You'll definitely want to serve it right away, while it's still hot.
I like it best served with fresh sliced baguette, but it's also good with hearty crackers or pretzel chips.
Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip Nutrition Notes:
The nutrition information in the recipe does not include whatever you may be dipping into the dip - it is for the dip only!
The nutrition info calculations used neufchatel instead of regular cream cheese, because that's what I always use. Using regular cream cheese will result in slightly higher fat and calories.
