Alright let’s just cut to the chase here! This next recipe is called Chicken Wing Dip NOT “Buffalo” Chicken Wing Dip. You don’t call them “Buffalo” wings if you actually live in Buffalo. The Buffalo part is just assumed cause everyone knows that when it […]
If Spinach Artichoke Dip is involved then you can count me in people! It’s pretty much one of my main weaknesses. I just can’t say no to this luscious, creamy, absolutely delicious dip. I’ve tried all the recipes, the restaurant knock offs, the crockpot versions, you name it. But this one, my friends, is by far my favorite! One taste and you’ll be hooked too. There’s no mayo involved so it tastes much lighter than most variations, which to me, really sets it apart from the rest. Loaded up with spinach, artichokes, and of course, LOTS of cheese, you won’t believe how quickly this dip becomes your new obsession. You might as well just go ahead and throw away all those other recipes right now. This is seriously THE BEST Spinach Artichoke Dip EVER!!!
Here’s all you’ll need: artichoke hearts, fresh spinach, garlic, onion, sour cream, cream cheese, milk, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper.
So not only does Spinach Artichoke Dip taste amazing but it’s also super duper easy to prepare. Chop the onions, spinach and artichokes. A lot of recipes that I’ve tried in the past use frozen spinach. Well after this one, I’m a firm believer that fresh is best! It gives this dish such a nice texture. For the artichokes however, I always opt for the canned version. This time saver is just invaluable to me considering all those minutes I’ll inevitably spend googling how to cut fresh artichokes and watching you tube videos. Combine the onions, garlic, spinach, and artichokes in a medium sized bowl.
Oh yeah, did I mention that chopping the vegetables is the hardest part of this recipe? I can feel that sigh of relief. The heavy lifting’s over! Stir in the sour cream and softened cream cheese. You can lighten this recipe up even more by selecting fat free or low fat versions. But in my mind that just gives me permission to pile on that cheesy topping at the end of this recipe! So your call. Choose your battles wisely.
A few more quick additions and we’re ready for the oven! Mix in the milk, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Again with the milk, skim, 2%, whole, I’ll leave that up to you and your waistline. But you really can’t make a bad decision here but for the love of God save the Almond and Coconut milk for another time! Mix up all the ingredients until the Spinach Artichoke Dip is nice and creamy. Mmmm….do you see that?!? Chunks of yumminess in every.single.bite!
And now for my favorite part…SAY CHEESE!!!! The cheesy topping on this dip is a total game changer! I don’t know why it never occurred to me to do this myself but it’s literally life changing. You’ll never go back to the plain old naked version again. Place the Spinach Artichoke Dip in a pie plate or shallow baking dish. Then sprinkle that remaining cup of mozzarella over the top. I mean cause who wants to put a measly 1 cup of mozzarella back in the fridge anyways?!? That’s just sad. And now we’re ready for the oven! Bake uncovered, in a 400 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese completely melted.
Serve warm with your favorite dippers. We love tortilla chips, pita triangles, or even toasted baguette! That melty cheese with those crispy golden edges got me drooling a little. Spinach Artichoke Dip is great for sharing….otherwise you’ll be eating the whole pan yourself!!! Which isn’t a bad thing either! And don’t forget to try our Cheesy Pizza Dip too!!
