When my husband and I began dating, I had a love for Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip that resulted in me making it at home… a lot! Thank goodness he shares the same love and always encouraged me to make it. Every time we were going to a get together, a potluck, a picnic, or other gathering where we needed to bring something, he suggested this recipe. It was always a hit!
If we were taking one to share with friends or family, I always doubled the recipe, so I had one for us at home. I knew there would be none left over and I also knew we would want some at home. Planning ahead is not always a strength of mine but for this recipe, I planned ahead for us to have a batch in the fridge.
The creamy, tangy base is perfect with the cheese, artichokes, and spinach. It is savory, flavorful, and perfect for dipping. I will warn you that it is hard to stop eating once you begin!
