RECIPE TIPS

  • 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 slow cooker. Start checking it at the lower end of the time range and go from there.

STORAGE

Storing: This dip is best served immediately. It will last in the fridge for up to a week. Freezing is not recommended as the milk and cheese will de-emulsify making it a liquidy texture.
Reheating: If you want to reheat this, add it to a pot on the stove over low heat. You may need to add a splash of milk to thin it out as it reheats.
