Crockpot Spinach & Artichoke Dip
Scrolling through Pinterest, I come across a recipe for Spinach & Artichoke Dip, made in a Crock Pot and I then thought, HOLY CRAP, I have got to pin this to make later. After that, I started to think that the Crock Pot isn’t as much about convenience as it is about, what can we cook in there. But, I did try the recipe and it turned out FANTASTIC!
This is really a great party food. While I do think that the Crock Pot is becoming more of an experiment in cooking, this is a recipe that is good to “throw it in and forget it”. Which I think is important when preparing food for a party. As much as I would like to prepare what I can the day before, I’m really not that organized. So if a recipe presents itself to be easily thrown together and I feel is going to be a hit, then I’m going for it.
With a lot of recipes, they are inspired from one site that was inspired from another. I’m just going to link you to where I got this recipe from and let you track it backwards if you please.
As always, read through the entire recipe and all of the notes before starting.
I found this recipe here
- 2 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
- black pepper to taste
- Artichoke Hearts
- Sour Cream
- EVERYTHING BUT THE CREAM CHEESE (you're wondering why I just didn't say that to begin with, right?)
- Stir until well combined
- Top with cream cheese.
- Cover and cook on low heat for 2 hours.
- The pictures in this post are of the recipe doubled.
- Just a tip: At Costco, you can get (2) 33 ounce jars of artichoke hearts for about $9.50. Which where I live is much cheaper than cans in the grocery store. Especially if you are going to double the recipe.
- Serve with sliced french bread, crackers, tortilla chips, or if you're really have no self-control, eat by itself.
- This held up really well for us. But if you're party is going to go on for hours, you may want to up the milk a bit, especially if you are serving it straight from the Crock Pot.
