How to make spinach artichoke dip in the crock pot

Step 1: Dice up the onion and garlic, drain the artichoke hearts and chop them up, then measure out the remaining ingredients: sour cream, mayo, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and frozen spinach. 

Step 2: Mix together all of the ingredients except for the cream cheese in the slow cooker.

Step 3: Once the ingredients are mixed, cut up the cream cheese into cubes and place on top of the rest of the dip. 

Step 4: Cook the spinach dip on high for 1.5 hours (no need to stir). Once the 1.5 hours is up, stir it all up as the cream cheese will be nice and soft and mix right in now.

Cover and cook the dip on high an additional 15 – 30 minutes, until hot and bubbly. 

Serve with tortilla chips and watch it disappear!

With cook time less than 2 hours and prep time only a few minutes, this cheesy spinach dip is always a go to recipe for me.

Can I use something else besides mayo? We don't like mayo. (Yes I know, we are crazy. LOL)

I'm not sure, maybe sour cream? I think that would work. Let me know if you try it!

I have not tried it myself. The excess water may affect the dip, but if anyone tries it please let me know!

@Joy Shull, if I double the recipe, should I also double the cook time?

If it's the only appetizer being served I would say no. I would double it for that many people.
