Spinach Artichoke Dip:
I think appetizers are so much fun. I love that you can sample lots of different flavors and create a whole, filling meal out of finger foods. We love making (and eating!) this cold crab dip , Rotel dip and this cheese dip, too!
This simple baked spinach artichoke recipe is the best. It’s so quick to make. You can even keep it warm in a crockpot or slow cooker for all afternoon munching.

How to Make Artichoke Dip
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees while you gather ingredients and start your mixing.
First, you’ll drain the artichoke hearts and reserve the marinade. Chop the artichoke hearts and place in a medium size bowl.
Completely thaw and drain the spinach. Squeeze out an excess liquid and add to the bowl with artichoke hearts.
Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, marinade, grated garlic, salt, pepper, hot sauce 1 cup of mozzarella, ½ cup Parmesan. Stir until well combined.
Transfer to a baking dish and top with remaining cheese.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve with chips, crackers or baguettes.
What to Serve with Artichoke Dip
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!
You could also use bread — warm and soft or a crisp baguette. I have a friend that loves to dip in her veggies as well.
No matter what you serve it with, I hope you’ll enjoy this spinach and artichoke dip it at your at your next celebration.
