  • What to serve with artichoke dip? Sliced crusty bread is our favorite thing to serve with artichoke dip. Carrots, potato chips, tortilla chips, warm pita bread, and pita chips are also good.

  • Let spinach artichoke dip cool completely before storing in the fridge for up to 4 days.

  • Leftovers can be frozen for 2-3 months. Thaw in the fridge a day in advance, or in the microwave.

    Can I use frozen artichokes?

    They might have too much moisture unless you thaw and drain them really well first.

  • Pal

    Can we sub mayo for another ingredient? Thanks!

    You can try sour cream instead! Hope you enjoy.

  • Carol

    DO YOU USE MARINATED ARTICHOKE HEARTS?

    We usually just get artichoke hearts that are canned or jarred in brine.

  • Tanya

    Bringing to a pool party and want to have the dip available in a crock pot. The mozzarella topping wouldn't work, should I put the whole cup into the dip? Thanks

    Yes, jus incorporate it, that will be fine. Hope you enjoy!

  • Loreen

    Can you also do it with frozen spinach?

    We haven't used frozen before but it should work fine. Hope you enjoy Loreen!

  • Sarah

    SO delicious!!! I made this for Christmas day and it was everything I wanted. So much flavor and so easy!

    Thanks Sarah, so glad you loved it!

  • Tresa

    I made this for my family Christmas get together and it was so good! Everyone loved it and it was gone so fast. It was also so fast and easy to throw together. I made it the night before and then just baked it when we were ready to eat it.

    So glad everyone loved it!

  • McBain

    Made this as a side to dinner on a cold, rainy day. It was quick, easy, and everyone loved it. I did make a slight change by reducing the artichoke content to half of what the recipe calls out.

    great! Glad you loved it!

  • Meredith

    This recipe was amazing at Thanksgiving and Im going to make it again for Christmas! I used baby kale by accident and it worked too :) Love the basil add!

    Good to know! Glad you've it! I might just have to try the baby kale! Yum!
