I love making this dip when company comes over or when I'm asked to bring a dish to a party. It's so delicious and addicting, I dare you to eat only one spoonful!

Spicy Bacon Spinach Artichoke Dip
Yield:
Makes 5 cups
Yield:
Makes 5 cups

Ingredients

  • One 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach
  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • One 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped 
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 

Heat the frozen spinach in the microwave for 5 minutes. Carefully squeeze out as much water as possible and set aside. 

Microwave the cream cheese for 1 minute. Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, cayenne, and garlic powder in a large bowl, and blend together well. Add the spinach, bacon, artichoke hearts, and both cheeses. Stir all the ingredients together until everything is well combined. 

Spread the mixture out in a pie or tart plate or in a small casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbling and slightly browned on top. 

Serve hot with crackers, pita crisps, or vegetable sticks, or inside a hollowed-out sourdough bread with the cubed bread on the side. 

Serving idea: Divide the mixture among smaller baking dishes or ramekins before baking it. Place the dishes of the cooked dip in different areas of the house for your party.

Cook's Note

Shopping tip: Look in the cheese section at the grocery store for an 8-ounce bag of shredded cheese called "Italian." This blend is made of 1 cup of Parmesan and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese -- exactly what this recipe calls for.
