I have no idea what has gotten into me, but I’ve been in the mood to recreate some of my restaurant favorites lately. Chris and I lived in Columbia, Missouri for several years. We frequented Flat Branch, a popular local restaurant and brewing company. We had several favorites there, but you could also count on us to order their Artichoke Dip!

By now I’m sure you know that my love of dips runs deep. I’ve brought you the most delicious veggie dip ever, along with my goat cheese marinara dip, easy sour cream dip, and so much more! 

Why should spinach have all the fun? This hot Artichoke Dip is ridiculously good. It is the ultimate crowd pleasing appetizer that will have everyone talking!

Artichoke Dip Ingredients

  • Cream Cheese – The cream cheese makes this baked artichoke dip so creamy and craveable.
  • Mayonnaise – Mayo is also a great base for creamy dips! Olive Oil Mayo is my go-to.
  • Quartered Artichokes – Canned and drained. You can use marinated artichoke hearts if you prefer.
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese – Fresh grated or store bought, your choice!
  • Monterey Jack Cheese – Fresh grated jack cheese makes this dip sooooo creamy! Avoid pre-shredded cheese, as it’s covered in a flour like substances that helps it resist sticking and melting. Not what you want in a creamy, rich dip!
  • Garlic – Minced garlic is preferable. You can purchase a jar in the produce section of your grocery store. However, in a pinch, you can substitute with powdered garlic.
  • Cayenne and Pepper – A hint of cayenne and thick flakes of black pepper add a touch of spicy flavor to this amazing dip!
  • Green Onion – optional garnish for a touch of color!
