Spinach Artichoke Dip {Recipe}

Spinach and artichoke dip is possibly one of my favorite dips/appetizers.  Who wouldn't like melted cheesy yumminess?!  I have found that the best spinach artichoke dips are homemade so I thought I would share my go-to recipe.  Brett and I actually had this for dinner the other night as neither of us were motivated to make something else (and I forgot to thaw some meat, oops!). Enjoy!

  • 1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened (by sitting out or microwave)
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Romano cheese (I didn't have this so I just added more Parmesan)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt (I don't have this so I used garlic powder and a dash of salt)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (more or less depending on how you like this doesn't add much spice because of all the dairy, but it adds a nice flavor)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup spinach (I just took about half of a frozen bag of spinach and thawed it so I'm not sure exactly how much I had, but 1/2 to 3/4 cup is good)
  • 14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained (cut into smaller pieces if you so choose)
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella (I didn't have this and it was fine with out, but would be extra yum with!)
How to Make:
  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly grease a small baking dish.
  2. In a bowl mix cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, Parmesan & Romano cheeses, garlic, basil, garlic salt, chili powder, and salt & pepper.  
  3. Gently stir in artichokes and spinach.
  4. Transfer mixture to baking dish and top with mozzarella cheese.  
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until bubbly and slightly browned on top. 
  6. Serve warm with tortilla chips, pita chips, slices of bread, veggies, etc!
