What’s In This Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe?

This crockpot artichoke and spinach dip features all the classic ingredients you’d expect, plus a few extra goodies to dial up the deliciousness. Here’s the lineup of what you’ll need:

  • Spinach – We use fresh baby spinach and chop it finely. If preferred, frozen chopped spinach can be substituted. Just be sure to let it thaw, and squeeze out all the excess liquid. 
  • Artichokes – Use canned, quartered artichokes that have been drained and chopped. 
  • Olives – Kalamata olives add a tangy, briny flavor that nicely balances out the richness of the cheese. 
  • Pimentos – Sold in jars, these peppers provide extra sweetness and a pop of color. 
  • Cheese – A combination of feta cheese, cream cheese, and mozzarella cheese creates the smooth, creamy consistency and rich flavor we look for in warm spinach and artichoke dip. For the best results, we recommend using full-fat varieties. 
  • Sour Cream – This is incorporated to help combine the ingredients, creating a smoother, fluffy texture and a decadent base. 
  • Garlic – Use fresh cloves for the best taste. 
  • Seasonings – Salt, pepper, and oregano enhance the rest of the ingredients while adding a hint of herbaceousness.

Common Questions About This Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

Is artichoke and spinach dip high in carbs? 

No, made with mostly cheese and veggies, this recipe is higher in fat than any other macronutrient like carbs or protein. 

Can I make this recipe lighter? 

If you want to make this dip a little lighter, opt for light cream cheese, light sour cream, and fat-free cheese. You can also replace the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt to reduce the fat content and give this dip a boost of protein. The texture and flavor will change slightly, but your dip will still be drool-worthy. 

Can I freeze leftovers? 

We do not recommend freezing this recipe as it’s likely to become soggy and watery once thawed.
