Classic Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe

A special thanks to Febreze for sponsoring the post today as part of a series for Socialstars™ and helping make my home ready for the big game.

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are behind us, I’m getting ready for the next event: the big football game!

We love entertaining in our home. I enjoy creating yummy recipes for our family and friends to enjoy. I delight in having our home filled with laughter and conversation.

So any excuse I have to make these things happen…. I will embrace. Such as football!

And really, big game entertaining is one of my favorites because I can create lots of delicious appetizers to enjoy. A whole table of them.

Beyond making yummy treats to enjoy, I’m doing a thorough clean up of my home. Taking care of Christmas decor is the perfect chance to also do a little organizing and deep cleaning.


I’ve tackled several projects around the house already, which makes me feel all sorts of good. One thing was putting Febreze SMALL SPACES several spots around my house.

Because there is something wonderful and inviting about stepping into a home that smells good. And when you have active little boys, sometimes mama needs a little extra help to make that happen. 😉

I appreciate that Febreze uses OdorClear technology to eliminate odors, not just cover them up. Their Meadow & Rain scent smells like dancing in the rain. It’s my scent of choice as we get ready for game day entertaining. 

Easy Football Party Ideas

The Febreze SMALL SPACES is great for a our bathroom. I pop it on the counter and I know it’s doing it’s job.

I can use Febreze AIR to spray in spots that need an extra burst of freshness. Just pull the trigger and it’s ready to go.

Now that my home is clean and smelling fabulous it’s time to get the yummies ready!

Ingredients for Spinach Artichoke Dip

I know this hot spinach artichoke dip will be a big hit at our football party. It’s an easy appetizer to make that your guests are sure to cheer for.

Best Spinach Artichoke Dip

It has lots of cheese inside and on top plus a dash of hot sauce and garlic. Which are basically all key components to a perfect game day recipe in my book.

Dip with Tortilla Crackers

I love serving it with some crispy tortilla chips. The dip is all warm and gooey and packed with flavor that goes perfectly with the crunch of the chips!

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

I hope you’ll enjoy it at your game day celebrations as well.
