This Keto Spinach Artichoke Dip is made with frozen spinach, artichokes, cream cheese, mayonnaise, and pepper jack cheese.
I love ordering spinach artichoke dip on the menu of a restaurant. I have to get it! If you plan on having guests over and need to make a dip, you won’t strike out with this one! This appetizer is by far such a crowd pleaser – last time I made it everyone was crowding around my dip.
This dip uses frozen spinach, marinated artichokes, parmesan and pepper jack, all baked to perfection. You can never go wrong with adding another type of cheese too!

Full of flavor: The mayonnaise, cream cheese, parmesan cheese and pepper jack cheese come together seamlessly and give the dip so much flavor.

Add the spinach, cream cheese, mayonnaise, chopped artichokes, chili powder, Yondu Vegetable Umami, water and garlic in the Instant Pot and combine.
Pressure cook on high for 4 minutes and quick release. When you unlock the lid and open, add the parmesan and pepper jack cheese.
Whisk until all combined well.
Garnish with green onion. Serve hot with chips or toast.
Cream cheese: If you wold like a healthier alternative, you can use cottage cheese. The cream cheese really gives it so much flavor though. Cream cheese is the base to any spinach artichoke dip, or any dip in general really. It make it so much tastier and it is super versatile.
Spinach: Since we are making this in the Instant Pot, using frozen spinach is actually better than fresh spinach, because frozen spinach has previously been cooked already. If you are adamant about using fresh spinach, I would steam the spinach and then place the spinach in a paper towel to squeeze the excess water out of it.
Artichoke: I like to use marinated artichokes from a jar, although you can use regular canned artichokes too.
Chili powder: Feel free to use a combination of either chili powder, paprika, or a little bit of cayenne pepper.
Mayonnaise: Mayonnaise is a great addition of flavor for the dip. You can substitute the mayonnaise with sour cream or greek yogurt if you wish.
Parmesan cheese: You can use pecorino romano or asiago instead.
Pepper jack: Any cheese that melts easily will do. You can use mozzarella or even shredded cheddar cheese.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
I love using my Caraway pots, pans and baking sheets for best quality.
This will be good in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
These ingredients don't stand up well to freezing.
Feel free to make any variation you want whether it would be more cheese, more spinach or artichoke.Print
