Slow Cooker Artichoke and Spinach Dip Recipe

I love slow cookers for the “set it and forget-it” help they provide on party days. I’m always looking for ways to adjust my recipes for the slow cooker and my Slow Cooker Artichoke and Spinach Dip is delicious and amazingly simple. + The slow cooker keeps the dip hot throughout the party and no extra serving dish. This is definitely a winner for my parties – it’s the second most requested party dish, just behind my hot crab dip.

Serving Suggestions:
Great for leftovers

  • Top a baked potato
  • Top a turkey and bacon panini
  • Top grilled chicken or steak

 

 

Easy Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes

The key to really awesome artichoke and spinach dip is using fresh spinach.  I know most recipes call for frozen spinach, but it just doesn't compare to the taste of fresh spinach.  I also prefer jarred artichokes marinated in oil and spices.

Ingredients

  • 32 oz spinach - fresh
  • 24 oz artichokes - bottled and marinated
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 1 sweet onion - medium finely minced
  • 6 cloves garlic - finely minced
  • 16 oz grated Italian cheese blend*
  • 5 oz blue cheese
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 2 t Tabasco - or more to taste
  • 1 t cayenne pepper
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 8 oz cream cheese - 1 block (use full fat - do not use low fat, it changes the creamy consistency of the dip
  • 4 oz butter - 1 stick

Instructions

  • Chop marinated artichokes.
  • Working in batches, using a microwave-safe plate, pile washed spinach on double layer of paper towels, repeat 2 times more. Microwave for 3 - 4 minutes. Remove each layer from the plate onto a double layer of paper towel and squeeze out excess moisture. Repeat this process until all spinach is cooked and excess moisture removed.
  • Roughly chop spinach.
  • Cut cream cheese into 2 " cubes.
  • Cut butter into 1 T pieces (follow the lines on the package)
  • Place artichokes, spinach, sour cream, onion, garlic, 10 oz Italian cheese blend, blue cheese, lemon juice, Tabasco into your slow cooker and stir just to combine.
  • Season with cayenne and ground pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Add pats of butter and cream cheese cubes.
  • Heat on high for 15 minutes.
  • Stir to combine. The butter and cream cheese should be incorporated.
  • Top with remaining cheese
  • Turn heat to low and cook for an hour, or so, turn to keep warm and serve. You can hold it on warm for quite a while if you need more time. Just stir well before serving.

Notes

*Sargento 6 Italian Cheese blend contains Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, Fontina, Romano, and Asiago. If you can't find this blend you can use 10 oz of mozzarella and a blend of grated Asiago, Parmesan, and Romano. I really like the way Asiago works in this dish. Alternately, you can use 10 oz of Mozzarella and 6 oz of Parmesan.
