  • Cream Cheese

Spinach – I love using frozen spinach for how easy it is. You can also use fresh, just double up the amount that is listed since it takes up more space when measuring.

Artichoke Hearts – I love to use the jarred artichoke hearts. You can also use frozen, just let them thaw and drain off excess moisture first.

Kim’s Tips

If you are leaving the dip out for snacking, it is best to serve it in a slow cooker on warm so it stays warm and creamy.

Notes

Spinach – I love using frozen spinach for how easy it is. You can also use fresh, just double up the amount that is listed since it takes up more space when measuring. Either chopped or whole/cut leaf spinach is just fine to use.
Artichoke Hearts – I love to use the jarred artichoke hearts. You can also use frozen, just let them thaw and drain off excess moisture first.
Quickly soften cream cheese by microwaving it in a glass bowl for 1 minute.
