  • CAN I USE FRESH SPINACH INSTEAD OF FROZEN?
    Definitely! To use fresh spinach, make sure you first remove any woody stems. In a skillet, add a couple teaspoons of olive oil and cook until wilted. Chop and then squeeze out any remaining moisture. For this recipe, 10 ounces fresh spinach should cook down to 3/4 cup drained, and is equal to 5 ounces of frozen spinach.
  • WHY ARE THERE CHUNKS OF CREAM CHEESE IN MY FINISHED DIP?
    Have you ever tried to dip a cracker into spinach artichoke dip, only to have said cracker break in two? Unmixed in cream cheese is to blame! When first mixing in the cream cheese, ensure that you mix thoroughly for the full 1-2 minutes to avoid these dead spots of dense cream cheese.
  • CAN I MAKE THIS IN THE SLOW COOKER?
    Yes! Add all ingredients to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 2 hours, or low for 3-4 hours. Make sure all ingredients are combined, and cheese is melted before serving.
