The ULTIMATE Dip of Spinach Artichoke Recipes

If you are looking for the best of the best spinach artichoke recipes dip, this post is for you! This recipe is creamy, delicious, and packs lots of flavors. Wait until you see how easy it is to make!

One of my favorite appetizers to make is spinach artichoke dip.

For years, I played around with a bunch of different recipes until I settled on my own version of this delicious fare.

This recipe is best using the freshest of ingredients.

But you can use frozen spinach and canned artichoke hearts if that works for you.

I love serving it with dipping carbs like a toasted, crusty baguette, pretzel chips or pita chips, but you can also serve it with your favorite cut up fresh vegetables.

I never met an appetizer I didn’t like.

When given the option to make an appetizer or dessert, I’m always on team appetizer.

While this recipe for spinach artichoke dip is my favorite.

There are lots of others I love to make.

Like this recipe for bruschetta tomatoes.

It’s from my grandmother’s vault and it is SO GOOD and perfect for when tomatoes are in season.

But I also love appetizers that you can turn into full meals.

Like this quick and easy proscuitto app or this Irish cheese and beer fondue recipe.

Can You Freeze Artichoke Dip with Mayonnaise?

Mayonnaise-based dips don’t freeze as well.
