Total Time: 30 mins
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 can chopped artichokes
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- ⅔ cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 8 oz softened cream cheese
- ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 6 oz. thawed frozen spinach
- Pepper to taste
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- Preheat the oven at 350°F. Spray non-stick cooking spray in a 1-quart baking dish.
- Combine cream cheese, garlic, mayonnaise, sour cream, parmesan, mozzarella, and pepper in a bowl.
- Add spinach and artichokes after mixing.
- In the prepared baking dish, evenly distribute the ingredients. Bake for about twenty mins in a preheated oven, till it’s thoroughly cooked and melted.
- Serve warm alongside crackers, tortilla chips, or toasted baguette pieces.
Before sautéing, be sure to thoroughly wash and pat dry the fresh spinach. If using frozen spinach, make sure it is well defrosted and drained to prevent the dip from becoming too moist.
Use artichoke hearts that have been canned or preserved in brine or water. In order to evenly disperse their flavor throughout the dip, drain and slice them into smaller pieces.
Try out various cheese pairings to determine which flavor profile you prefer. In addition to adding richness and depth, mozzarella and Parmesan provide creaminess to the dish. When baking, think about sprinkling some grated Parmesan over top for a golden crust.
