Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe – Houston’s Restaurant Ingredients
16 oz frozen chopped spinach
16 oz frozen artichoke hearts
1 medium sweet onion
8 oz cream cheese
8 oz mozzarella
8 oz monterey jack cheese
6 – 8 oz swiss cheese
4 oz parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder

Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe – Houston’s Restaurant Directions

First, microwave 16 oz of frozen spinach for about 4 minutes, then drain and squeeze as much water out as you can. Chop a medium size sweet onion, and saute it in about 2 tablespoons of butter, until the onions are soft. Remove from heat and stir in the spinach to combine.

Microwave 16 oz of frozen artichoke hearts (not marinated), then drain and chop into bite size pieces.

Shred the cheese…. We’re using 8 oz of monterey jack, 8 oz of mozzarella and 6 – 8 oz of swiss cheese. Toss to mix in a large bowl.

Add one 8 oz package of cream cheese that is room temperature, or that you’ve softened in the microwave.

Mix together the seasoning…
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
And stir to combine.

Add to the bowl and combine with the shredded and cream cheese. Add the chopped artichoke hearts and the spinach onion mixture. And mix thoroughly, it looks like a lot but it’ll come together quickly…. You could do this in a food processor, but hand mixing helps the keep a nice, chunky texture in the dip, with pockets of delicious cheese.

When you’re ready to serve, top with parmesan cheese and bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 for a small dish, about15 minutes for a larger casserole size dish, or until it’s hot and the cheese is melted.

Serve with chips and pico de gallo or salsa, sour cream, chips and lemon wedges.
Delicious! I hope you give it a try soon, you and your guests are going to love this!!
Thank you so much for watching and I’ll see you in the next video!
