Let’s talk about sports…..if you’ve been here for awhile, you already know I’m only into sporting events for the snacks. It’s like a free pass to eat whatever you want when there’s a big game on and right now….it’s March Madness. So, bring on the dips….all the dips….especially Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip!

This Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip is seriously amazing.  I’ve never really been a fan of the Cold Spinach Artichoke Dip you see at every gathering….you know the one.  The dip that’s served in that hollowed out pumpernickel loaf with the scraps arranged “artfully” around the bread bowl. For dipping. 

Someone brought one once to a party I was hosting and you know who liked it the most? My cat. Yep, she, rudely, perched herself on the table (I know, so gross) and went to town on that spinach dip. She loved it. And so….I’ve never dipped into that one again. PLUS….I’m more a fan of the melty, cheesy, creamy dips like the Best Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip ever made. This is the one.

I’m starting to amass a collection of dips here at The Suburban Soapbox….in fact, I have so many I could actually host a dip party. One where all you have to bring is your own crackers or a bag of chips to dip into all night long.  Or not….the more I think about it the more I actually hate that idea so much. That’s one for when we’re ancient and no longer have our own teeth.

Ok, so back to the dip….this Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip is made with ingredients you can find without breaking a sweat at your local grocery store. Things like frozen cut leaf spinach, frozen artichoke hearts, lots of cheese and a few other things.

INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED

Like I mentioned a second ago, this super cheesy spinach dip is made with easy to find ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cream Cheese – Make sure your cheese is room temperature before beginning so it blends smoothly.
  • Mayonnaise – Your favorite mayonnaise will do but don’t use a low fat or fat free mayonnaise. The dip could separate. 
  • Pepper Jack Cheese – If you don’t like any spice, then you can replace with Monterey Jack cheese.
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese – Your favorite sharp cheddar will work, don’t use low fat or fat free and freshly grated is the best bet.
  • parmesan cheese – Not from a can, freshly grated parmesan cheese will make your dip the best ever.
  • onion – Finely mince so you don’t have big pieces of onion in your dip.
  • garlic – Fresh, finely minced garlic.
  • worcestershire sauce – If you want to up your dip game, use fish sauce instead!
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • cayenne pepper – Sensitive to spice, you can skip the cayenne.
  • lemon juice – Freshly squeezed, please.
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • spinach – If using frozen, be sure to squeeze out the excess water completely or you’ll have watery dip.
  • artichoke hearts – Frozen are used here but you can also use freshly steamed artichoke hearts if you want. We sometimes use leftover steamed artichokes.

It looks like a lot of ingredients but I assure you, it’s not.  You probably have most of them in your kitchen already.  This easy spinach dip recipe is definitely one of those dips you can whip up at a moment’s notice.
