The Best Spinach Artichoke Dip

The BEST Spinach Artichoke Dip - easy, creamy, cheesy, and melty!

If I had to choose just one food group to eat for the rest of my life, it would be dip. You know, if dip were a food group.

I’m obsessed. I don’t know if it’s just because dip is fun or what. I mean, the act of dipping one delicious thing, such as a tortilla chip, into another delicious food, such as spinach artichoke dip, is totally more exciting than using a fork or spoon. Am I right?

Anyway, I don’t want to brag or anything, but this spinach artichoke dip? It’s the one. It’s my favorite and I love it with my whole heart.

It’s creamy and flavorful and gooey and melty. I know how y’all feel about gooey, melty foods. You’re going to love this, aren’t ya?

Now, I would like to remind you all that this recipe is titled Spinach Artichoke Dip. That means it is full of spinach and artichokes. So…healthy? Yes. I mean, it’s vegetables! You can’t go wrong with vegetables. You shut your mouth about the mayonnaise and cream cheese. Shh. The veggies cancel out the cheese.

So, basically what I’m saying is, go eat this. Riiiiiiiiight now. Then come back and leave me love letters because I brought this delicious dip into your life.

    Spinach artichoke dip is my favorite dip! I love it hot or cold or room temp, you get the idea. That picture of the gooey stringy cheese made my stomach growl. Mmmm!

    I really try not to abuse “the best” but sometimes it HAS to be used! This is one of those times! :)

    You and me both! I could live at the appetizer table. And spinach artichoke is one of my favorites. I love the spinach/artichoke combo, especially covered in cheese – I really like all the different cheeses you mixed into this version!

    Apparently there are a lot of us out there that love dip! Spinach artichoke is my favorite but I think the creamy parmesan bacon will be tugging at my heartstrings too!

    Dips are definitely some of the best things in this world. I mean, they help you mix one delicious thing with a second delicious thing and then EAT THEM SIMULTANEOUSLY. What could be more right?!

    Thanks for reminding me I should use those artichokes I have in the pantry!

    I am almost afraid to admit that I don’t eat much dip. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I just never think about it like I do say cinnamon rolls or cheesecake or pie or bread pudding or or or. Laughing here—I love my own jokes. Anyway since you obviously seem to have the inside track on dips I am going to trust you and make this for a family ‘do’ tomorrow.

    I just made this and it’s seriously the BEST! Even my über picky toddler ( who is currently in a beige food phase) loved it! He started just using his hand bc he couldvt shovel it in fast enough with a chip.
