Ingredients You Will Need
Crockpot spinach artichoke dip is a delicious and easy-to-make appetizer that takes only a few simple ingredients to make. The main components of the dip are spinach, artichokes, sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, and minced garlic. The simplicity of the ingredients makes it a great option for when you don’t want to spend a fortune at the grocery store. You can also easily adjust the ingredients to personal taste and dietary restrictions like gluten-free, dairy-free, or low-fat. Check out the recipe card below for all measurements!
- Cream Cheese: You’ll want this to be softened and cubed so it melts evenly. Want to make this spinach artichoke dip dairy free? Go for plant-based cream cheese.
- Sour Cream: I love adding sour cream to my dips because it gives them the best hint of tang. You can use dairy-free sour cream as well! Greek yogurt is another great substitute for adding creaminess and a tangy flavor.
- Mayonnaise: Adds creaminess to the dip.
- Garlic: Minced garlic adds the best savory flavor!
- Cheeses: Here I used a mix of shredded mozzarella and grated parmesan.
- Canned Artichoke Hearts: Chopped into bite-sized pieces.
- Fresh Baby Spinach: This should be chopped as well.
- Salt and Pepper: Add to taste!

Tips for Making the Best Crockpot Dip
When it comes to appetizers, this crockpot spinach artichoke dip is as easy as it gets. That being said, here are a few extra tips to make sure your dip turns out perfectly!
- Keep The Lid On: I know it’s tempting to lift the lid and check on your dip, but you’ll only want to do this once halfway through the cooking process. Leaving the lid on helps to keep in the heat and seal in moisture so your dip doesn’t dry out or burn.
- Shred Your Own Cheese: Packaged shredded cheese is usually coated with additives that keep it from melting properly. I recommend shredding your own mozzarella and parmesan for best results!
- Add Cheese Before Serving: If you want a delicious melty layer of cheese on top of your dip, sprinkle extra parmesan or mozzarella on top a few minutes before serving!
Homemade dips are SO easy to store and reheat. Keep any leftovers of your crockpot spinach artichoke dip in the fridge for best results!
- In the Refrigerator: Once cooled, transfer dip to an airtight container and store for 3-4 days.
- Reheating: Reheat in the microwave or on the stove, stirring frequently.
