Fall is here and it's a busy time of year. It's full of activities, friends, family, and fun. It's also a time of year when I find myself making food that feeds more people than usual as we entertain. Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip is one of my favorite fall recipes.
It's perfect for game day, entertaining around the holidays, or just enjoying on a chilly day. It's packed full of fresh spinach, artichoke hearts, and cheesy goodness that always makes it a hit!
When you add cheese to things, everything is better. That seems to be something my family can all agree on!
CROCKPOT SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP
Dairy is a staple in our house. Without dairy, our Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip wouldn't be the amazing dip that it is. Our refrigerator is always stocked with milk, yogurt, and cheese. Yogurt and string cheese are snack time must-haves for all of us!
But when I want to make a certain recipe like this dip, I make sure that we have plenty of extra cheese. It's goodness from the farm to our fridge and I don't think you can ever have enough in the house! So the next time you're having people over break out the Crockpot, stock up on the easy ingredients, and whip up a batch of our easy slow cooker spinach artichoke dip!
I always thought learning how to make artichoke dip seemed complicated. I'm not sure why. It's one of my favorite things to order when we go out.
With this recipe, you can toss all of the ingredients in your slow cooker and by the time your friends and family arrive, you'll have delicious, easy hot spinach dip to enjoy together! It's not hard at all!
SLOW COOKER SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP
Like most of my favorite recipes, the ingredient list for this easy artichoke dip is pretty simple. You'll need tons of fresh spinach (I prefer fresh to frozen for the best flavor), artichoke hearts, and a few different varieties of cheese.
Dairy is key to this recipe. I use Greek yogurt (you can also use sour cream), reduced fat cream cheese, Mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese to make it happen.
Once you have the ingredients gathered, you basically just do a little bit of chopping and then throw it all into the Crockpot and go!
It's really that easy to make! Toss it in and cross other things off your to-do list if you're getting ready to entertain! Or just relax while you wait to enjoy some good food! Once the dip is heated through and all of the cheese is melted, it's ready to serve!
You can serve it with your favorite dippers or offer a variety so everyone is happy! Some of our favorite dippers are garlic bread, pita chips, celery sticks, and baby carrots.

I'm a huge fan of this recipe because of the cream cheese and Greek yogurt. I make it a bit lighter by using the yogurt and reduced fat cream cheese. It's still as creamy and delicious as when I use regular cream cheese and sour cream.
I love that dairy gives me different options to make our favorite recipes a bit better! We also have great snack options for when we're not cooking! We get nutrition and great taste! Did you know that dairy farm families are the source of the naturally good dairy products we all love? Every time we buy a dairy product, we’re helping to support local dairy farmers and their families. I love knowing I'm helping another family while enjoying products my family loves!
