Have a recipe that uses cream cheese, sour cream, roasted red bell peppers, a touch of ranch dressing and with rendered bacon fat. Will give this a try as well. 🙂
Am making this now..in oven.Going to take some time. For myself..and eat the whole thing watching Bridges over Madison County! A large glass of ice and I am ready!
can I make this in a crockpot?
For sure! I would just combine all the ingredients and cook on low for a couple hours.
Love your anecdote. I read it out loud and laughed out loud with my teenager! Will try your dip this weekend.
i live in a small southern town like that, also. It only has one pharmacy and grocery store and no movie rental. I have been looking for good spinach and artichoke dip. Will try this for Super Bowl game tomorrow.
I can’t believe you had to watch “Over the Top” and “Overboard”….. I endured the same punishment from my boyfriend…. those are his two favorite movies!
Can leftovers be frozen? I live alone and, though I have not doubt I could probably eat the whole recipe, I’d like to be able to freeze some for further use!
Is there any way to make this dip a night ahead? I really want to take it to a bachelorette party ):

Instead of baking this in the oven can it be served in a mini crockpot? Thanks.
Hi Aggie, Yes! You can definitely serve this in a crock pot! 🙂
omg this looks so yummy!
I only have fresh spinach …..suggestions please
Not to fear Angie! You can still make this with fresh spinach too. All you have to do is cook your spinach down. Spinach will reduce quite a bit, so in order to get a full cup of cooked spinach, you will need around 2 bunches of fresh spinach (about 4 cups chopped up). Just place a little bit of olive oil in a large pan and heat it to medium. Add the spinach, a handful at a time, and stir until it wilts and and cooks down. Once you have your 1 cup remove it from the heat and strain and squeeze as much moisture out of it as you can. You should be good to proceed with the recipe using that spinach! 🙂 Hope that helps!
What can u use instead of mayo. im not a fan of it at all ? I was thinking cream cheese. thank u
Instead of mayo, try sour cream. I make a spinach vege dish and use sour cream and this recipe is very close. Try it and see. I would think cream cheese would work too. Sour cream, cream cheese and mayo are just binders and really not enough mayo in the recipe to be able to pick mayo out specifically.
What do you think about Fage 0% Greek yogurt as a substitute for the mayo, or even 1/2 Greek yogurt and 1/2 mayo? Fage Greek yogurt, unlike regular yogurt, can be used for cooking. On the container it even says, “Fage Total 0% Greek Strained Yogurt is a delicious alternative to cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese and sour cream. It can be used in preparing cold, hot, sweet and savory recipes.”
I am not a fan of mayo either but I made this for Super Bowl Sunday and it was DELICIOUS. I definitely couldn’t tell it was mayo, it just tasted like cheesy artichoke heaven!! Everyone loved it and I can’t wait to make it again.
I drown my sorrows in cheese all the time. Your dip looks awesome.
Does it matter what kind of parmesan cheese? Are we talking freshly shredded, or is the grated stuff in a can ok?
Oh I so hear you. I went from suburbs of Pittsburgh to tiny cow town. The only thing keeping this town thriving is the company I work for. The places to eat are super limited. We do have a Red Box but very, very limited selection. At least with your spinach artichoke dip, I can stay home and eat this in front of my tv.
Confession: never seen Little Shop of Horrors or Stand By Me. LOL! This app looks amazing. Love how simple it it.
Spinach is one of my favorite products because it is very tasty and extremely beneficial for your health because it contains a great number of vitamins and microelements. This recipe is one more thing that I`m going to cook this weekend.

I will basically have to make this spinach artichoke dip just to help me get over my own shock. WHAT?!? I’m with you, those are classics and this looks freakin’ delicious!
Jocelyn @BruCrew Life
Ok…I have to admit I have never seen either of those movies either. Clearly I need a bowl of this yummy dip to hide my shame in!!!
I LIVE for this stuff!! Too bad the husband hates spinach and artichoke. Oh well, whole pan for me. 🙂
Gerry @ Foodness Gracious
I’ve never seen those movies either, bear in mind I’m a foreigner. I am familiar with spinach dip and this I could eat over and over again 🙂
Taylor @ greens & chocolate
At least you had something delicious to drown your sorrows in. Holy yum! It’s a good thing I don’t live in your small town – I’d fight you over those browned edges 🙂
Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel
Um, how did you know spinach artichoke dip is one of my favoritest dips ever?! This looks so gooey and cheesy and positively heavenly 🙂
The dip looks incredible and I’m with you not he movie classics!
Thanks Sommer! 🙂
I do not recall seeing those movies either 🙂
I make a spinach and artichoke dip too but mine does not have the mozzarella cheese I will need to give your version a try.
Thanks for the recipe!
You should totally look into renting the movies, they are great! And this dip is killer good with the mozzarella in it! 🙂

Shawn, this is my idea of a perfect dip! Love it!
Do you know if a 10oz pkg of frozen spinach makes 1 cup? My local store only sells 14oz cans of artichoke hearts. Do you drain the water?
Hi Lois, I would defrost the 10oz package of spinach, chop it and take a cup from that. It’s probably right around a cup, maybe a little more, but that wont hurt the recipe. And yes, a 14 oz can will work, and yes, drain the water before chopping the artichoke hearts. I’ll adjust the recipe to mention that. Thanks!
