The most recent time I made this spinach artichoke dip, I received such amazing words of praise from my husband. He said “this is even better than Costco’s dip.” Haha, I loved it! And it’s true! This veggie loaded, super creamy dip is way more flavorful than any store bought dip.

What to serve with spinach artichoke dip

I served our warm dip with a handful of goodie – crackers (these are my favorite 5 kinds of crackers), tortilla chips, cucumbers, carrots and bell peppers. I also used some of the leftover dip over some chicken the next day. Oh my goooooodness, that was a smart idea!

I feel like the possibilities are endless.

Want a spinach artichoke pizza? Top this on it.

Want to stuff a baked sweet potato with it? Go for it.

Want added flavor to your chicken? Serve it with healthy spinach artichoke dip and you are set for a delicious meal!

Storing and reheating leftover dip

If you end up with leftover dip, store it in a sealed container in the fridge. To reheat, I suggest warning in a 300 F degree oven for 10-15 minutes, or until it’s warmed through. You can also reheat in the microwave until warm. However you choose to warm it, give it a good stir and ensure even heating.

I had missed you here! So I just tried adding my own blog to feedly (I mostly used bloglovin and it shows up fine) and it’s so strange, but no posts are showing up. How did you fix it?
