So cheesy and so easy.

I’ve made this recipe numerous times for friends and family, and every single time, people go back for seconds/thirds/even fourth servings and the plate is wiped clean. So many people have asked me for the recipe and I’m happy to be able to share it.

It’s super easy and simple, literally anyone can make this. I don’t really use a recipe anymore, I just throw a few ingredients together in a baking dish, mix with my hands and bake away.

The Original Recipe is from Kraft see link: Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip with Cheese. Here is my tweaked version.

  1. 1 can artichoke hearts, drained, finely chopped – don’t rinse the juices off, it adds more flavor, just drain the excess then chop
  2. 1 pkg. (10 oz.) chopped spinach – recipe says use frozen, but why? get some fresh spinach!
  3. 3/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese – I recommend mixing most of this with the dip, but save a handful to sprinkle on the top
  4. 3/4 cup KRAFT Light Mayo Reduced Fat Mayonnaise   – I don’t use Mayo, I use 3/4 cup plain cream cheese instead
  5. 1/2 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese I add more cheese because I just love cheese – sometimes Italian five cheese blend in addition to mozzarella
  6. 1/2 tsp. garlic powder – meh skip this step too

Heat the oven to 180°C or 350°F before you start combining ingredients.

Mix your ingredients, use a spoon, or I prefer to use my clean, washed hands.image1

Transfer the mix into a oven-safe baking dish, size doesn’t matter, use what you have available.

Bake for 15 minutes until the top is starting to get golden, then change the oven to broil for 2-5 minutes for an extra crispy top.

While it’s baking, prepare your tortilla chips or cut up pita to eat it with.

Take it out of the oven, let it cool a little bit, grab your friends and family.

(Note – the photo attached is from the first time I made this back in 2012, before my final edits and before I started adding an extra crispy broil to the Parmesan on top.)

Bon appetite, this dish is best served HOT!

This recipe is very versatile, you can add whatever you want to it and I’m sure it’ll come out great. I try to keep it simple and cheesy.
