Spinach and Artichoke Dip is creamy, cheesy and stuffed with fresh artichoke and spinach. The perfect appetizer for any party or social event. Delicious when paired with a sliced french baguette, your favorite cracker, or whatever you prefer to use as a dipper!
Spinach and Artichoke Dip has always been one of those dips I constantly find myself gravitating towards at parties. I love the fresh, herby flavor mixed in with all of that creamy, cheesy goodness. Anything I can dip a delicious slice of bread in is the perfect dip for me!
When I think of dips, I think of Football Sundays. My favorite time of the year. Although we don't know what the NFL will look like this year, or if there even will be an NFL season, but regardless Nate and I will be whipping up this bad boy to fill the void if need be. Every ounce of me hopes that I will be making my fantasy football lineups soon though!
The best part about this dip is that is requires minimal preparation. It only takes about 10 minutes and at that point all you need to do is bake. The other nice part is that you can mix this recipe up early, save it in the fridge, and bake before you are ready to serve! Just make sure if you are baking it later on you remove the dish from the fridge for at least 10 minutes if it is glass or it will shatter from the heat of the oven.
- cream cheese
- sour cream
- artichoke hearts
- monterey jack cheese
- parmesan cheese
- garlic clove
- salt and pepper to taste
Chop artichoke hearts on a cutting board. Once all of the artichoke hearts are chopped, mince the garlic. Add both the chopped artichoke hearts and the minced garlic to the mixing bowl.
Add softened cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, spinach, monterey jack, parmesan and salt and pepper into the bowl with the garlic and artichoke hearts. Mix until well combined. Transfer the mix to the casserole dish and spread evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes. When it is done, broil on low for 3-4 minutes or until the top begins to brown. Serve with slices of a french baguette.
What if I don't have monterey jack cheese? Is there a cheese I can substitute?
Yes! Mozzarella would be a great substitute! You can switch out the monterey jack cheese for this at a 1:1 ratio!
Why do you broil at the end?
I love when my dips gets the slight, crispy browning on the top. I think it perfectly finishes off the dish and adds a little extra flavor to the dip!
