Dips are one of my favorite appetizers to serve for just about any occasion.

Spinach dip is a classic recipe for a reason and this recipe is no exceptiong. With three kinds of cheese in it you know it has to be good!
It’s a go to appetizer with us along with some of our other favorite dip recipes like mexican bean dip, veggie dip, oreo dip, chip dip, fruit dip, slow cooker spinach artichoke dip, crock pot bean dip, and queso blanco.
Ingredients to make spinach dip
- garlic: fresh minced

- chopped spinach: frozen spinach is best for this recipe
- cream cheese: this is the secret for making this dip so creamy!
- sour cream

How to make creamy spinach dip
Step 1: Add the minced garlic, frozen spinach, cream cheese, sour cream, grated parmesan cheese, and minced onion to a sauce pan.
Stir the ingredients together and cook the dip over medium heat for around 5-7 minutes, stirring often, until the spinach thaws and the cheese is melted and creamy.
Step 2: Grease a small baking dish with olive oil cooking spray.
Spread the spinach dip evenly into the baking dish and top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
Step 3: Bake the creamy spinach dip at 425 degrees for around 10 minutes, until melted and bubbly. Broil 1-2 minutes at the end to get the cheese browned on top.
This step is optional, but I really love those delicious browned yummy bits of cheese, they are my favorite! It also makes for a more visually appealing appetizer in my opinion.
Just watch it closely while broiling to make sure that it doesn’t burn. It will brown quickly!
What do you eat with creamy spinach dip?
This dip is great for just about anything. Our favorite dippers are crunchy tortilla chips or toasted baguette slices, but you could also serve it with pretzels, any kind of crackers, cut up veggie sticks, pita chips, or any kind of toasted bread.
A sliced french bread loaf would be a great size to crisp up and serve as dippers.

How to store & serve
This spinach dip shouldn’t be left out longer than two hours at room temperature before it needs to be refrigerated.
Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 3-4 days, if it lasts that long! In our house this is gone in a day or two.
If you are reheating the spinach dip in a casserole dish, make sure you allow it to sit out a few minutes first before placing it in the hot oven as this can cause it to break.
I have found that this dip reheats great in the microwave and typically will reheat a single serving that way to enjoy the leftovers.
