This Ultimate Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe uses common Grocery Store Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • sour cream
  • 1 package (8 oz) of cream cheese, softened
  • mayonnaise
  • garlic clove
  • Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts
  • 1 package (10 oz ) frozen spinach
  • red pepper flakes
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Freshly chopped parsley for garnishing

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). This ensures your dip gets that beautifully golden top.
  2. Mix the creamy base. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, and minced garlic. Use a hand mixer or a sturdy whisk to blend everything smoothly.
  3. Add the cheeses. Stir in the freshly grated Parmesan cheese and shredded mozzarella into the creamy mixture. Reserve a handful of mozzarella for topping later.
  4. Fold in the stars. Gently fold the chopped artichoke hearts and squeezed-dry spinach into the mixture. This is where the dip really starts to come together.
  5. Season. Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes (if using) for a bit of heat, and season with salt and black pepper to your liking. Give the mixture a final stir to ensure everything is well combined.
  6. Transfer to a baking dish. Spoon the mixture into a suitable baking dish. An 8-inch square pan or a similar sized round dish works perfectly for this amount.
  7. Top with cheese. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese evenly over the top. This will create that irresistible cheesy crust as it bakes.
  8. Bake to perfection. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the dip is bubbling and the top is golden brown.
  9. Garnish and serve. Once done, let it cool for a few minutes. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a touch of color and freshness. Serve warm with your choice of dippers: tortilla chips, sliced baguette, crackers, or fresh veggies.
