Cheesy, rich, and comfortingly creamy, it doesn’t get much better than this classic Spinach Artichoke Dip. Topped with mozzarella cheese and baked to perfection, this dip recipe can be served with tortilla chips or a toasted baguette. You may want to make extra, this is one flavorful party food that won’t last long once it’s on the table!
Spinach Artichoke dip is one of those foods that just makes people stop and go, “Mmmmm…”
It’s creamy, it’s savory, and it even has a vegetable or two in it. That evens out the calories in the cheese, right? I like to think so.
This dip is the perfect dish to bring to a party, board game night, or even for Sunday night football. Just get ready to make more, because your friends will definitely be asking for this one again.
And again… and again… you get the idea.
Okie dokie, artichokie.
I’m so sorry for that one. Really, I am.
I served a big ole’ dish of this at a game night a few weeks ago and received a resounding, “You NEED to make this for the blog!” from the group. So, here it is, in all its cheesy, artichokie-glory.
You can add your own twist to this dish (I suggest jalapeño peppers, cheddar cheese or even lightening it up with Neuchâtel cheese), but I implore you to try this more traditional version first.
You won’t regret it, I promise.
This really is comfort food at its best. Millions of restaurant appetizer menus can’t be wrong, right?
Oh, cheesy-goodness, I love you so, so much. Seriously, I could definitely eat this whole thing by myself.
I’d have to pace myself, over the course of an afternoon, but I would enjoy every bite of it. Who really likes sharing, anyway?
I don’t stand a chance when it comes to game day foods. You name it. Wings? Nope, no resistance. Chili? Even less of a chance. But spinach artichoke dip? Don’t even get me started. It’s the touchdown of game day foods. The blow-out win. The two-point conversion in addition to the touchdown.
Ok, I’ll stop now. but you get the point.
The cheesy, delicious point.
