Party Season is all about the dips, charcuterie boards, and finger foods. Let’s make the Best Chunky Guacamole, Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers, and some Spicy Chex Party Mix!

Best Artichoke Dip

Mike and I recently enjoyed the best artichoke dip at a restaurant lately, so much that we practically licked the bowl. This is an effort to recreate it, and I think I did pretty good!

While artichokes may not be your favorite thing to eat raw, they certainly are delicious in this dip. They are also nutritious, providing an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K, and folate. So let’s focus on all of that while indulging a bit as well!

While I don’t have a ton of dips on the blog yet, I do have several go-to recipes. We love a big bowl of creamy hummus and veggies, my Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, and the best Southern Pimento Cheese. Also, one can never go wrong with some Cowboy Caviar with Avocado!

Ingredients Used

This is a small’ish recipe. Feel free to double it for a large group!

  • Artichoke Hearts – I use the regular canned artichoke hearts, but marinated ones will work as well.
  • Mayo – If you can find the olive oil mayo (my personal fav), use that. But any versions is fine too.
  • Sour Cream – I normally buy the light version, so that’s what I used.
  • Cream Cheese – Again, light cream cheese is my preferred kind, unless I’m making a cake!
  • Mozzarella Cheese – Shredding your own cheese guarantees that it will melt, but I often buy shredded too.
  • Parmesan Cheese – I recommend shredding some real parmesan cheese here, instead of the powdered version.
  • Seasonings – You’ll need garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and freshly ground black pepper.
  • To Serve…Crackers, chips, or bread! So much yum.

Can I add spinach to this dip?

Well, yes, you most definitely can add spinach. Then this would be Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip! I recommend using frozen spinach, and just simply thaw it and squeeze the excess liquid out before combining with the rest of the ingredients.

Spinach adds a healthy component, so that is a win/win!

How to make Baked Artichoke Dip:

  1. Chop artichoke hearts. Chop up the artichokes into small pieces. I reserve a few large ones for the top of the dip – presentation purposes only. 😀
  2. Mix ingredients. Use a hand mixer, and combine all the ingredients.
  3. Pour into a baking dish. Use a rubber spatula to pour ingredients into a baking dish.
  4. Bake. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until heated throughout, and slightly browned on top.
  5. Serve. Serve with all the crackers, chips, or chunks of bread.

This dip is great for so many occasions.

  • Game Days
  • Holiday Parties
  • Summer Barbecues
  • Netflix Binges
  • and just lazy weekend days!

Notes

  1. This is a small’ish recipe. Feel free to double it for a large group!
  2. I’ve never tried this with marinated artichoke hearts, but I’m sure that would be fine too.
  3. To lighten this up a bit, use some greek yogurt instead of some of the sour cream.
  4. Feel free to add spinach to this recipe. Just thaw out some frozen spinach and squeeze out excess liquid before combining with the other ingredients.
  5. Save a few larger pieces of artichoke hearts for the top, for presentation purposes.
  6. Instead of baking this dip in a dish, you could stuff it inside a bread bowl and then bake.

    Ok,

    I made this last weekend, and it tasted just like the dip my dear friend Maria makes. Delicioso!

    My only exceedingly minor change was to use the 7-spice Japanese seasoning powder, nanami togarashi because a) I’m addicted to it and b) since it’s a powder, it mixes in better than crushed red pepper flakes.

    Be forewarned, though—the combination of ingredients in the powder will tint the dip a slight coral shade …

    Anyway, I love this recipe, and am very glad I stumbled upon it. Thanks much!

      So glad you enjoyed the artichoke dip, Sharon! Thanks for your feedback. 🙂

    I LOVE this dip, as does my entire family. When I make it for a party, there is always nothing left over … so sad! I combined your recipe with my original (really about the same). Your recipe calls for mozzarella cheese and a little “heat,” so I tried it. Delicious! I also add 3-4 chopped hardboiled eggs. It adds to the texture and is so good!

    1. Suebee Homemaker says:

      How interesting that you added eggs to it! So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  3. Sharon Bond says:

    I went ahead and gave this five stars because it sounds exactly like the one my friend makes and I never got her to write it down for me!

    Since I’ll be social-distancing for the Big Game Sunday, would it make me a bad person not to share this with anyone?? 😃

    1. Suebee Homemaker says:

      Oh that sounds like a great plan, Sharon! Enjoy!

  4. I thought this was the perfect amount, and everyone loved it! I made it for Chirstmas Eve at my house with my boyfriend’s family; there were a LOT of appetizers so it barely got touched. Took it to my sister’s for Christmas day, reheated in the oven, and we all gobbled it up waiting for Christmas dinner. Years ago, I made a version of this that didn’t include the cream cheese (I don’t remember the mozzarella cheese either), but it was delicious!

      Hi Joy! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the artichoke dip! Thanks so much for your feedback. 🙂

  5. Omg this recipe is soooo good! I did not use the red pepper flakes in my dip. I made garlic Parmesan pita chips to go with it and they came out amazing and complimented the dip soooo well. I definitely recommend!

      Zach’s favorite recipe of mine! Ha! 🙂

  7. This tastes incredible, but the best part is the ease in making the recipe. Zach does not cook, yet has made this twice this week and it is only Thursday morning. ????❤️
