Spinach Artichoke Dip FAQs

Can I Use Fresh Spinach – Yes, when I have the time, I will use substitute the frozen kind with fresh spinach.  Simply steam the spinach until it has wilted.  You’ll then want to drain it and then finally chop it before adding to the pot.

Can I Use Other Cheeses –  While my favorite cheeses for this recipe are mozzarella and Parmesan, you can also substitute those with provolone, Asiago or another cheese you love.  I would just recommend sticking with cheeses that have a more mild flavor.

What Should I Serve With This Spinach Dip – I love to eat this spinach dip with slices of a French baguette.  If you prefer a low carb option, celery sticks are another excellent option.

Can I Make This Dip In The Crock Pot – Yes, you can easily make this recipe using a slow cooker.  Simply put all of the ingredients into the crock pot and then cook on high for about 2 – 2 1/2 hours.  You’ll want to stir occasionally to keep it from burning on the bottom.

Make Ahead & Storing

Can I Make This Ahead Of Time – Yes, you can make this ahead of time and serve it when you’re ready.  Just be sure to store it in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge if you don’t plan on serving it soon after making it.  This will stay fresh in the refrigerator for at least 5 days.

Can I Freeze Spinach Dip – While you can freeze this dip, I wouldn’t recommend it.  I tried it once and didn’t like the texture of it once it thawed and was reheated.
