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 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 at all!)

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. 

I love spinach, and combined with three types of cheese? 

You just can’t go wrong.

What do you serve with artichoke dip?

My personal favorite is tortilla chips. 

The crispy salty bite combined with the hot cheesy dip is so delicious!

This dip would also go fabulously with crackers, or even toasted baguettes.

How do you reheat spinach and artichoke dip?

You can easily reheat this dip in the oven if serving multiple people, or the microwave for smaller portions. 

If heating in the oven, bake the dip at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly.

For the microwave, usually 30 seconds – 1 minute heats up a single sized portion perfectly!

Does spinach dip have to be refrigerated?

Yes, any leftovers should be refrigerated and stored in an airtight container with a lid. 

How long does spinach artichoke dip last in fridge?

Dip should be eaten within 3-4 days after cooking, but I doubt it will last that long in your house!

@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.
