Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe

Creamy dips are always popular, whether you are serving them at a buffet, for friends who have come to visit, for the family as a special treat or for another occasion. There is something about a hot creamy dip recipe which makes it perfect comfort food. Also, you can choose what to dip in there. As a general rule, dips containing vegetables should not be served with vegetable crudités for dipping. If you are making a vegetable-based dip, such as this creamy spinach dip with artichokes, serve tortilla chips, corn chips or toasted bread slices instead, because the crisp texture of these gives you the perfect contrast with the creamy dip.

The following recipe blends three kinds of cheese, namely mozzarella, parmesan, and cream cheese, for a complex flavor, along with fresh spinach and artichokes. The garlic and black pepper season the dish and because the cheese and vegetables are so tasty you really do not need any more seasoning than that. Of course, if you love spicy flavors, you might want to add a few drops of Tabasco sauce but make sure you inform people if this one is going to be spicy because it looks like a mild-tasting dip.

Some crockpot dips need to cook all day long on low but this one cooks for two hours on high and it is ready. Since there are no ingredients in this which require a long cooking time to become tender, two hours on high is all you need here. Fresh spinach cooks really fast and you can even wilt it in a pan in less than a minute so really it only needs long enough to soften a bit and wilt. You can turn it down to low and take the lid off if you want to serve it in the crockpot. That is the best idea anyway because it will stay warm and runny if you do that.

Hot and Creamy Three Cheese Spinach Dip
Summary: Creamy spinach dips are always lovely, and this one boasts artichoke, mozzarella, garlic and parmesan too. This is ideal for dipping crackers, chips or toasted bread slices.
