  • Black Pepper - Used to help season the dish properly and balance the flavors.
  • Cornstarch - Adds thickness to the dip so it can easily be scooped.
  • Milk - Thins out the dip mixture while keeping it rich and creamy.
  • Worchestershire - Adds a salty umami flavor that adds richness to the overall dip.

How To Make Crock Pot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Tips For The Best Crock Pot Spinach Artichoke Dip

  • Chop the onion and garlic into small pieces to ensure there aren't large bites of them throughout the dip.
  • Remove the woody stems from the spinach, as this could make the dip stringy.
  • Make sure to drain the artichoke hearts properly to avoid a watery dip.
  • If you want a thinner consistency, add more milk until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • The time it takes to melt the cheese and wilt the spinach will depend on your crockpot. Start checking it at the lower end of the time range and go from there.

Variations

  • Use different greens: Instead of spinach, try using kale, arugula, or Swiss chard.
  • Add protein: Add in cooked and shredded chicken or a can of drained chickpeas for a heartier dip.
  • Make it spicy: Add some red pepper flakes or diced jalapenos for a little heat.
  • Try different cheeses: Use all mozzarella, cheddar cheese, or a mix of your favorite shredded cheeses.
  • Add other vegetables: Sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, or mushrooms would be a great addition to this delicious creamy dip.

Storage

Storing: This crock pot spinach artichoke dip is tastiest when served right away. If you have any extra, just let it cool and then store it in a sealed container. It will last in the fridge for up to a week. Avoid freezing because the milk and cheese may separate, resulting in a runny texture.
Reheating: If you want to reheat this, add it to a pot on the stove over low heat. Stir until it's evenly heated. You may need to add a splash of milk to thin it out as it reheats.
