About this Recipe

Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip—say that five times fast! Make this classic appetizer on game day or anytime you’re looking for a crowd-pleasing side dish. While there are many variations of spinach and artichoke dip, this recipe is served warm with crispy golden brown bits on top. Pro tip: finely chop the artichokes to ensure you get a taste in every bite. It balances the creaminess and hint of sharpness from the cheese. Serve with crackers, toasted baguette slices, or crudites.
