Recipe for a delicious spinach artichoke dip that is baked to creamy perfection. Serve it with pita chips or bread for a tasty appetizer.Jump to Recipe
In the past, I’ve mentioned that I enjoy a good spinach and artichoke mixture. I have made it into a quesadilla before but hadn’t made my own dip. Although, when we go out to eat, it’s one of my favorite appetizers (after fried mozzarella).
So, as usual, I started looking up recipes online. I combined the best of a few of them to come up with this recipe. I wanted a spinach artichoke dip that’s baked in the oven. You can cook it and eat immediately. Or you can cook the dip and refrigerate, then just reheat when you are ready. We ate this with some store-bought pita chips, and it was a perfect appetizer.
I made it for a Super Bowl party a few years ago. The first food gone: Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip. The pita chips are perfect with it, but you could also eat the dip with bread or crackers. When cooking for a crowd, bring a little bit of each so guests can choose which one they prefer.
For the artichoke hearts, I suggest either using a chef knife or a “slap chop“. The pieces don’t have to be uniform in size.
Step by Step
Set your oven to 350F to let it preheat while you get the dip together. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mozzarella cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, half of the parmesan cheese, mustard, and pepper. Stir these together until they are well mixed.
Stir in the chopped spinach leaves, artichoke hearts, and red onion.
Spread the mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie plate or an 8×8 baking dish. Make sure there aren’t any peaks in the dip; otherwise those will burn before the rest of the dip has cooked. Try to even the dip out as best as possible. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese on top of the dip, covering as much as possible in a thin layer.
Bake the spinach artichoke dip uncovered for about 15 minutes. It will probably just start to bubble, and the parmesan cheese on top will melt. Serve the dip warm with crackers or pita chips or bread to dip in it.

I love spinach and artichoke dip!! By far my favorite appetizer at casual dining restaurants! I love th idea of making this to sit by myself and watch tv…. I’m super pregnant and not down with sharing my food at the moment.

I love spinach dip! But I haven’t ever made it myself and I think I have all these ingredients except the pita chips! This would be so delicious for game night!
It’s great when you have people over. You don’t have to use pita chips, those are just my preference with it. Any cracker should do!
