Make In The Slow Cooker

This Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip is sure to be a hit.  It’s easy to make and sooo good!  It’s warm and creamy, but has great chucks of artichoke and great mix of cheeses.  I love being able to put it all in my slow cooker and forget about it.  After it’s all finished cooking on low heat, you can leave it on the warm setting, and it’s all ready to serve.  Be sure to give it a good stir, every so often while it’s on the warm setting.  You can even put it together the night before and then just take it out of the fridge and put it in the crockpot the next day before serving.  If the dip becomes too dry you can always stir in little milk to make it more runny.

Favorite Dippers

I usually serve this warm spinach dip with some homemade pita chips.  They’re easy to make too.  Just cut up some pita bread into triangles, brush with a little oil and toast them in the oven until crisp.  Tortilla chips are great easyn option too, or just plain pita bread.  Bagel chips are a great option as a dipper for this crockpot spinach artichoke dip recipe.


Look for canned artichokes at the grocery store and be sure to drain and chop artichoke hearts  before adding them to the crock pot spinach artichoke dip.

We used frozen chopped spinach.  Just let it thaw and squeeze out any water before adding it to the dip.  If you forget to defrost the spinach before hand, like I have a few times, you can defrost in the microwave.  Just be sure to drain it well before adding it to the crock pot.

You can use full fat cream cheese or low fat cream cheese in this recipe. This dip has such a creamy base, that either version will work great here, so use whichever you prefer.  It’s easy to blend the cream cheese into the dip if it’s at room temperature, but if you forget to take it out of the fridge before hand don’t worry the block of cream cheese will melt as the dip warms up in the slow cooker.  For best results, just be sure to stir it occasionally as it warms up so that you can fully incorporate it into the dip.
