My Spinach Artichoke Dip in the Crockpot is so simple to recreate. To make this at home, you’ll need the following:
- Crockpot. A crockpot is a convenient tool for making your mouth-watering dips. Most of your job is just to chop up the ingredients and throw them in the slow cooker. Easy-peasy!
- Chopping Board. This is a must-have tool in any kitchen as you don’t want to cut things directly on the kitchen countertop.
- Sharp Knife. Make sure that your knife is sharp and well-maintained, so you have no problem with cutting the ingredients.
- Wooden Or Metal Spoon. Use this spoon to stir your dip and scoop it out. If you don’t own a wooden spoon, you can substitute it with a metal one.
Below are the key ingredients to make my creamy, extra scrummy Spinach Artichoke Dip in your Crockpot.
- Spinach. Spinach is the main vegetable of the dish. You can opt for frozen spinach for convenience’s sake. Just remember to thaw and squeeze the veggie dry before cooking. Besides, fresh spinach is also a good choice for this recipe.
- Marinated Artichoke Hearts. Artichoke hearts marinated in oil and herbs are more flavorful than water-canned ones. If you use the unflavored type, you can make up for it with extra seasonings, like half a teaspoon of Italian seasonings.
- Cream Cheese. Creates an ultimate creamy base for this delectable dip.
- Monterey Jack Cheese. This subtle buttery cheese has a superior melt quality and is perfect for this creamy cheese dip.
- Sour Cream. Adds a tangy creaminess to the dip base.
- Garlic. Garlic is a must for the base of my dip recipes.
- Salt and Pepper. Use to taste.
- Dried Dill Weed. Makes this dip something a little extra in the flavor department.
How To Make Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip
Making this Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip is super simple and fuss-free. Follow these four key steps to get a perfectly blended creamy dip every time.
Step 1: Chop Your Spinach
Place a chopping board on a flat hard surface and place your fresh spinach leaves on it. Using a sharp knife, chop the spinach roughly. Set aside.
Step 2: Prepare Your Artichoke
Using the same chopping board and knife you used for the fresh spinach, finely dice the marinated artichoke hearts. Set aside.
Step 3: Assemble Your Crockpot & Ingredients
In your kitchen, assemble the crockpot you plan to use and the prepared vegetables.
Step 4: Mix Your Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip
Put all your ingredients into the crockpot except for the black sesame seeds, and stir well. Switch the crockpot on and cook the spinach artichoke dip for 1 hour on the high setting or 2 hours on the low setting.
Step 5: Serve Your Dip
Once your spinach artichoke dip is cooked, serve in a bowl and sprinkle with black sesame seeds.
Alternatively, if you have prepared your dip in advance, spoon it into an air-tight container and store it in a refrigerator. You can enjoy the dip chilled or reheat it in a microwave for approximately 1 – 3 minutes.
Tips And Serving Suggestions
This recipe is incredibly simple and tastes absolutely divine. Below are some of my favorite serving suggestions to really get this crowd-pleaser impressing your friends and family.
Tips for Spinach Artichoke Dip
My tips will ensure you get the perfectly cooked creamy spinach artichoke dip in your crockpot.
- While there are various types of cream cheese, only choose the regular version for this dip. Other kinds, like the spreadable one, are too loose.
- The recipe calls for dried dill weed, but fresh dill would be just as tasty, if not more!
- I like to make this dip the night before. If I know I am going to be in a rush, I store it in an airtight container in a refrigerator and serve it either chilled or reheated in a microwave for 1 – 3 minutes, pausing to stir every minute.
- There’s nothing wrong with swapping out the Monterey Jack cheese for your favorite one. For example, try using shredded Mozzarella cheese for a different flavor.
- Spice things up by spooning in hot sauces, sliced jalapenos, or crushed red pepper flakes.
- Other veggies, such as kale, water chestnuts, and bell peppers, are also great choices for this recipe.
- Add more protein by tossing in crab meat, chicken, beef, shrimp, or bacon.
