Hot Asiago Artichoke Dip with Spinach

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re huge fans of dip in our household. Sometimes we go for the healthy dips, like a yummy Greek Yogurt fruit dip recipe, or a low carb chocolate fruit dip. Other times, we love a sweet dip like this tasty cake batter dip, or a lovely caramel apple dip.

Then again, sometimes it’s time to bring out the cream cheese, full fat cheddar and Asiago, and really enjoy a yummy hot Asiago spinach artichoke dip dip. This artichoke and Asiago dip is one of those recipes!

Costco sells huge blocks of Asiago cheese, so we always have it on hand. We use Asiago a lot as a substitution for Parmesan, as it’s a lot cheaper than real Parmesan blocks. It’s also delicious!

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced

How to make Asiago spinach dip with cream cheese

This is such an easy dip to make! Essentially you just add all the ingredients to a bowl, mix, move to a baking dish, and bake! So simple.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly grease a 11″ x 13″ baking dish.

Tip! I chopped my artichokes finely in this Asiago cheese dip recipe, but if you love big artichoke flavor, leave them in bigger chunks!

Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Asiago cheese, drained artichokes, spinach, garlic, basil, garlic salt, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. 

Add to the greased baking dish. Top with cheddar cheese.

What to serve with hot spinach dip

We love to serve this tasty artichoke and spinach dip with Doritos, but it’s also delicious with pita chips, a baguette, or pretzel chips.

It’s a little to thick to serve with potato chips, as potato chips tend to break off in the dip. I tried it! It’s also nice to cut the richness of the dip with something a little lighter like a pita chip instead.

We also love this served with crunchy, thick veggies like carrots and thick slices of red or green bell pepper. So good!

What is Asiago cheese?

Asiago is a semi-hard cheese, that’s a little like Parmesan. It’s made of milk, and tends to be smoother than Parmesan, but a bit creamier and milder. It’s originally from Italy. Fresh Asiago is smoother and milder, while true aged Asiago is harder, and with a stronger flavor.

lol, Vanessa, you must be able to read my mind. I made this last week (minus the spinach, since I was out, but it’s still great), and I ate it myself over a few days. 🙂

One of my favorite dips is a Spinach Artichoke Dip sold at Houstons so this is right up my alley. I love how easy it is and a warm dip at this time of year should always be on the menu. I’m keeping this for the big basketball games coming up in March.
