Spinach Artichoke Dip – a creamy and flavorful dip perfect as an appetizer or for your parties. Enjoy!
The holidays are here and that means getting together with family and friends. One thing I always serve at my parties is dip. My favorite types of dips are the ones that are quick, simple, and satisfying.
Here is a recipe for Spinach Artichoke Dip that is delicious and super easy to make. It is loaded with flavor with ingredients that include Parmesan to give it that bite, ricotta to give it that smooth, creamy consistency, and garlic for flavor. How bad could it be just mentioning those ingredients?
I use 2 large cloves of garlic to make a teaspoon of minced. To give an added kick, I throw in some crushed red pepper – optional if you don’t want it spicy.
I use marinated artichoke hearts that come in the little jars. The marinade adds flavor and I feel the texture is better than the plain ones in the cans.
The best part? Just combine the ingredients, transfer to a baking dish, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Done!
This is a great dip to serve your guests at your party. Serve with pita chips, crackers, vegetables, or toasts. It can be prepared ahead and baked just before guests arrive.
I hope you try this dip and enjoy it with your guests.
I have a wonderful friend, Kim, who gave me this beautiful pie plate as a Christmas present. She gave it to me yesterday and was insistent that I open it right away. I wanted to wait until Christmas but she wouldn’t have it. When I opened it up, I was so excited to see this beautiful dish. The timing was perfect since I was planning on posting this dip and it is beautiful for presenting. Thank you so much, Kim.
