Spinach Artichoke Dip Ingredients

  • Roasted Sweet Red Peppers: These are usually stocked near the salad dressings or canned veggies. You’ll need one 12-oz jar.
  • Marinated Artichoke Hearts: A 6.5-oz jar. These are usually quartered. You’ll also need to reserve 1/3 cup of the liquid to use in the dip.
  • Frozen Chopped Spinach
  • Cream Cheese: Cube the cream cheese and bring it to room temperature.
  • Fresh Mozzarella: The mozzarella should also be cubed, or get fresh mozzarella mini balls.
  • Fresh Shredded Parmesan: This adds a wonderful depth of flavor and a needed punch of salt.
  • Feta Crumbles: For tartness and richness.
  • Mayonnaise: Feel free to use a keto-friendly mayonnaise if desired.
  • Fresh Garlic: Mince or put through a garlic press.
  • Crackers: For serving.

How to Make Slow Cooker Spinach Artichoke Dip

  1. Chop the Peppers and Artichokes. Grease the insert of a 3-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Remove peppers and artichokes from their marinades. Chop the peppers and artichokes roughly and sprinkle into the slow cooker.
  2. Add the Spinach and Cheeses. Evenly sprinkle the chopped spinach, cream cheese cubes, mozzarella, parmesan, feta, mayonnaise, and garlic over the peppers and artichokes.
  3. Add Reserved Liquid. Stir in liquid; mix until everything is combined.
  4. Cook the Dip. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours. Then uncover, stir, re-cover, and continue to cook for 30 more minutes (or up to 1 hour). Stir again before serving.

Possible Recipe Variations

  • Spicy and Tasty: Add some heat by stirring in some spicy wing sauce, Tabasco sauce, Sriracha, or cayenne to taste.
  • Switch up the cheese: Opt for your preferred type of shredded cheese instead of using Mozzarella.
  • Did Someone Say Bacon? I love sprinkling crunchy, crispy bacon bits over the top of this delicious dip just before serving. So good! You can also stir in cooked diced ham.
  • Crunchy and Crisp: Add a can of drained water chestnuts, roughly chopped, to give this dip a refreshing, crunchy bite.

Serving Suggestions

  • Go Crackers! I love serving this delicious dip with pita crackers, water crackers, and butter crackers.
  • Pastry Chef: Add a side of my Puff Pastry Cheese Sticks – you will love them!
  • Expect the Unexpected: Serve Spinach Artichoke Dip with Crispy Popcorn Shrimp! The flavors complement each other.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

  • To refrigerate, cover well or store in airtight food-storage containers and keep for up to 4 days.
  • To freeze, separate dip into portions and seal each portion in a freezer bag, pushing out as much air as possible before sealing. Thaw completely in the refrigerator before reheating.
  • To reheat, place in an oven-proof dish and bake at 350°F until heated through, 10-20 minutes. Stir well before serving.
