I first posted this recipe back in 2010, my oldest daughter Karina loves this dip! It was the only way I could get her to east spinach and made it often for her as an after school snack. Other dips you may enjoy are Buffalo Chicken Dip, Hot Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Dip, and Crab Guacamole or check out a full list of Party Dips.

Ordering a traditional spinach dip from a restaurant can land you 1,600 calories and 100 grams of fat. Removing the cream cheese and using lighter ingredients just makes this dip much lighter by half! Only 85 calories a serving and you can’t even tell!

With the Super Bowl coming I thought I would revive this dip! You can prepare this a day ahead and bake as needed. It can also be frozen before heating up if you want to prepare this a few days ahead. Check out a full list of my Super Bowl Party Food ideas.

  1. I love making this spinach dip! It’s always a huge hit for parties. Can you freeze this prior to baking? Looking to make my thanksgiving prep a little easier.

  2. Very nice!! I used the leftovers to top reheated grilled chicken. I will definitely be using this dip to stuff chicken breasts when the weather cools this winter. And it was a great dip for other veg: sweet peppers and fried mushrooms. Thank you!

  3. This recipe is delicious and so easy to make!! My husband asks me to make this for him almost every week. 

  4. Also can I mix everything together earlier , put it in the fridge and then few hours later bake it for guests? 

  5. How much mozzarella do you actually use? 1 Cup plus 4 oz? The recipe is confusing…thanks for the clairification!

  6. This recipe is delicious! Every time I make this and bring it to parties it is a crowd pleaser. It’s my go to when I want a yummy snack. 

  7. I just made this dip a few minutes ago. I doubled the spinach, light mayo and cheeses. I used garlic powder because I’m a lazy git about using fresh garlic in appetizers. I omitted the scallions because I don’t have any scallions. I squeezed all the moisture out of the spinach and artichokes, mixed everything together in a bowl, and whacked it into a 9 x 9 glass baking dish for 28 mins at 375. The only thing I’d change is the temperature. Next time, I’d do 400 degrees because the cheese on top didn’t brown enough for my liking. It was very good. I recommend this recipe. It’s tasty and for a lighter recipe, it didn’t taste “light” to me. Try this recipe–you won’t regret it.

  8. I made this and brought it to a party, it was an absolute hit, and it was delish. I can’t quite get the nutrition estimation that you have though, 85 cal per serving seems low. I calculated it out and I was at closer to 130 cal per 1/4 cup serving. Is there something that I am missing?

  9. Would I be able to cook this in a crockpot or should I just transfer it over to the crockpot after it cooks and keep it on “warm”? Having company over and want it to stay warm while people socialize.
