Baked Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Baked Artichoke and Spinach Dip by

Baked Artichoke and Spinach Dip is a warm and cheesy dip loaded with spinach, artichokes hearts, green onions, grated cheese and mozzarella.  A delicious appetizer that can be prepared in advance and baked until the cheese is completely melted and heated through.  It’s even perfect to nosh on while dinner is getting ready.

Here is a true story: there is a great restaurant Liz, myself, my kids, my hubby and our entire family absolutely LOVE.  It’s called Houston’s, and they have many restaurants nation wide, and we are lucky to have one right here in Garden City, New York.

Every time we come up to visit, we’d always stop by to grab a bite, and always order their best appetizer, their artichoke and spinach dip served with tortilla chips.  It’s always delicious, creamy and addicting, to say the least.



So we tried to duplicate the dip.  We knew what the main ingredients were, but obviously had to figure out the rest.  So after a few batches in the making, we came up with one delicious dip that was not only substantial, but also satisfying.

We served this artichoke and spinach dip the other night at a dinner party, and everyone really loved it!  I think this one will be a great addition to your collection of appetizers.

You should definitely try this recipe, I know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Serve this appetizer dip warm with tortilla chips, sour cream, salsa on the side and maybe a cold beer to go with it!

    This looks perfect! I will have to give this recipe a try. My sister-in-law makes a mean spinach and artichoke dip topped with sharp cheddar but I think I would enjoy the mozzarella and Parmesan more! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    This looks great, healthy and tasty… but I've never eaten artichokes, we don't get them in India. Will probably substitute with cabbage or capsicum…

    Hi Karen! I recommend you only use spinach. No need to subsitute for the artichokes, the taste will still be delicious!

    We used to have Houston's in Nashville (oddly, it may even have started here) It was, for many years, one's of Nashville's favored dining spots, and always garnered raves for their spin-artie dip. It is a winner!

    Growing up I hated artichokes AND spinach, but my Mom made this around the holidays and I just loved it – probably all the cheese! But now I love artichokes on pizza and I feel positively naked if I am sans spinach in the house!
