How to Store Cheesy Artichoke Dip

It is hard to have leftovers when you make this dip!! But, if you have leftovers, store it in an airtight container for 4-5 days. Warm it till its hot and bubbly again in the oven.

How to Freeze Cheesy Artichoke Dip

You can freeze extra dip properly sealed in an airtight container in the freezer for about 2 months. Thaw it out before hand and warm in the oven when its time to eat.

Tips & Tricks

I love to serve with mini naan for dipping. Pita chips are also a great choice!

FAQs

What should I do if my artichokes are heavy on vinegar?

Use canned artichokes that have not been marinated in vinegar. Jarred artichokes, especially, can often be marinated in vinegar that can give them a strong flavor and you will risk getting that flavor in the dip.

How should I avoid my dip from being too runny or thin?

Using the flour to make a roux helps create a good base for the dip and keeps it from becoming runny later. Additionally, draining the artichokes well will make sure that there are no extra liquids getting added.

    Made this recipe last year for NYE and it was a hit! Not a bite was left. Making it again this year for thanksgiving. Question though? Will jarred artichokes that are marinated in oil be ok or is that a mistake?

  2. Hi! I’m making this for Halloween this weekend! If I wanted to add spinach, would I use frozen spinach and if so, how much? Looks delish, can’t wait!!

  3. My sister always hosts Thanksgiving. But she ALWAYS asks me to bring this dip. A show stopper for sure!!.

    Oh my gosh. Made this for the super bowl yesterday and it was amazingly delicious. Possibly one of my favorite eats ever!

  5. I think this recipe has a flaw. Step 3 says add 1/2 cup gruyere and fontina yet at the end it says to add those cheeses to the top. I’m wondering if you meant 1/2 of the cheeses rather than 1/2 cup. It taught me to read to the end! But it is delicious with the cheese added in anyway!

  6. I’ve made this recipe twice. It is good, but I think it needs something for more flavor. Next time I make this I will add hot sauce, chopped jalapenos or diced green chilis.

    1. Ok, so I’m pretty amateur at cooking. I’ve been following and omg I my family loves my meals now. lol very tasty and so easy to follow. Ok, that aside to make this ahead of time I can do all but pop it in the oven? Nothing will get yucky sitting in the fridge overnight? I’m trying to make all I can ahead of time to save time.

    This is delicious! Great recipe! I have a quick question about the Global vegetable knife you use in your recipes. Is it a 7 inch or 5.5 inch? Thank you!

    I made this for New Year's Eve and everyone kept asking where I got this recipe. It is the best artichoke dip EVER. Use crudite, pita chips, crusty bread, or tortilla chips to dip up this delicious goodness. I promise everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
