This artichoke spinach dip recipe is adapted from my older stove stop spinach dip. The other spinach dip has water chestnuts instead of artichoke hearts. You can also try baking this dip recipe in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. If you do decide to bake this dip, eliminate the vegetable oil and only use 1/4 cup of milk. And make sure to soften the cream cheese first to make mixing the ingredients together much easier. Pre-make: The night before a party, I've also pre-made large batches of this dip and placed them in baking dishes and chilled them in the fridge. When the party day arrives, I'll take out the dip and allow it to come to room temperature, then bake it at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until all the cheese is completely melted and hot.


  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion , diced
  • 1 clove garlic , minced or crushed
  • 14 ounces artichoke hearts , drained and chopped
  • 10 ounces chopped frozen spinach (thawed & drained of excess water)
  • lots of fresh cracked black pepper , to taste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt, or to taste
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (1 package)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese , grated
  • chips , crackers, or vegetables for dipping


  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add oil. When oil is hot, add the onions and garlic. Cook the onions and garlic, stirring frequently, until they are light brown but not burnt, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add chopped artichoke hearts, spinach, salt and black pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes until ingredients are combined well.
  3. In this order: Add milk first, the stir. Then add cream cheese, mayonnaise and parmesan cheese. When cream cheese begins to melt, turn heat to low.
  4. Slowly stir and simmer ingredients until all cheese is completely melted and dip becomes creamy and well combined. Cook for about another 2-3 minutes to blend flavors together.
  5. Serve immediately when it's warm with bread, crackers or tortilla chips.
