Warm and Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip for a Crowd

Warm and cheesy spinach artichoke dip is a perfect and popular appetizer for a party! It can be made in a slow cooker or in the oven and it's great either way!




    Who doesn't love a creamy, gooey, cheesy, warm dip?  This one just begs for you to grab a pita chip and dive right in!  I made it for our Easter open house and it was a hit.

    Our friend Sam said it was one of his top two dishes of the day.  My sister Kristie was more than happy to take a container of leftovers.  It was really good and super addictive!


It's really easy to make, just mix together a few ingredients.



     Then spread into a baking dish and cover with cheese.  Or you could put it in your slow cooker and warm it that way! 



    Stick it in the fridge until party time.  Bake for 30 minutes and serve warm.  This dish goes into a wire stand with tea lights underneath to help keep it warm.  Though it may not have a chance to cool down anyway, it will go fast!

     We really love to eat this dip with pita chips, but tortilla chips are a good option as well.  This makes a really large batch, but you can easily cut it in half for a smaller crowd. 

    If you like warm cheesy dips, you may also like my kickin' corn dip or warm and cheesy pulled pork dip.  Better yet, get a ton of chips and make them all!
