Crock-pot Spinach Dip

How to Make Crock-pot Spinach Dip

Chips and dip are a favorite party snack as well as a great appetizer when having guests over for dinner. There are many variations to spinach dip as well as different ways you can serve it. Today, I will be showing you a few of them.

Ingredients for the Crock-pot Spinach Dip

To make the recipe, you will need:
  • 1 cup of thawed, frozen spinach
  • 1 can of chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1 cup of Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper and garlic salt

Prepare the Crock-pot Spinach Dip

First, prepare the ingredients by grating the cheeses. Chop the artichoke hearts into small pieces and combine the dry spices for a better mix. If you use frozen spinach, wring the water out so your sauce won't be too runny. Combine and mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Some additional ingredients you can add are: 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar.

Make and Serve the Crock-pot Spinach Dip

Once you have a nice mix you are satisfied with, add it to the crackpot and turn on low and let it cook for 1-1/2 hours. For faster cooking turn on high and let it cook for 45 minuets to an hour. But be sure to check and stir occasionally. When serving, sprinkle a little shredded mozzarella cheese on top and garnish with parsley. You can serve with sliced Italian bread or baked tortilla chips. Delicious!
