A party dipper beyond compare…

What’s a gathering without a hearty amount of spinach artichoke dip? When the gang’s all here, turn to this recipe to feed a lot of hungry mouths. It’s such a go-to, especially because you can make a ton of filling dip in little time at all. Adding crushed red pepper provides a little something extra to an already tasty appetizer.

If you like spicy (why else would you be here?), feel free to have a heavier hand on the CRP than we recommend below. This amount gives it a family friendly heat. Adding in an additional 1/4 of a teaspoon of crushed red pepper is a good next step.

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter then sauté the onions until translucent. 
  • Add to the saucepan the cream cheese, sour cream, Colby Jack cheese, cheddar cheese, and half the Parmesan. Stir to combine. 
  • Add the artichoke, crushed red pepper, black pepper, and salt. Stir again to combine. 
  • Add the spinach and stir to combine. 
  • Transfer the mix to a greased baking dish, then sprinkle the rest of the Parmesan cheese to cover. 
  • Turn on the oven broiler. Once hot, place the baking dish under the broiler and broil for 3 minutes, or until the cheese topping starts turning a golden brown. 
  • Remove from the oven and allow the dip to cool for 5 minutes. Serve. 


If opting for frozen spinach, allow it to thaw completely and remove as much moisture as possible from the leaves (this can be done by squeezing the thawed spinach through a strainer and then laying it on paper towels).
