Slow Cooker Spinach Artichoke Dip | www.tasteandtellblog.com #recipe #appetizer #slowcooker
 
I warned you on Wednesday that the appetizer recipes are going to be coming – and I didn’t lie!!

This may look like your run of the mill spinach artichoke dip.  I’m pretty sure everyone has one in their recipe arsenal.  But this is a little bit different.

One of my biggest annoyances when you are trying to prepare a bunch of appetizers is that they all have to go in the oven at the same time.  And as much as I wish I had a double oven, I only have one.  So it’s pretty much impossible to make sure everything is done at the same time and ready for your guests.

Enter – the slow cooker!!  (Yes, I am definitely learning to love my slow cooker these days!!)  This could seriously be the easiest appetizer at your next get-together.  Throw all of your ingredients in the slow cooker and walk away.  When it’s time to party, this dip is ready for you!  And making it even easier is a Reynolds slow cooker liner.  I have to admit that I had never used a slow cooker liner before this, but now I’m wondering why I don’t always have a box of them in my pantry.  Not only was this dip so easy to throw together, but clean up was seriously a breeze!  I am a Reynolds slow cooker liner fan now, for sure!

What is your best trick for preparing a bunch of appetizers?

  26. kristy says:

    I never would have thought to use a slow cooker for spinach artichoke dip. What a great idea! It looks delicious too. :)

  27. teresa says:

    you know, i don’t usually think about my crockpot when it comes to appetizers, but it really is a great idea. the dip looks AMAZING, i love spinach artichoke dip!

  28. Such an easy recipe! Love it and will definitely pass this along :)

  29. spinach artichoke dip is my FAVORITE Deborah! I love it so much that I have even eaten it plain – not cooked! Or warm! It was still good smeared on top of pitas that way! But making it in a slow cooker is so easy – saves time and leaves the oven open for something else. I love that idea! Esp in my small little kitchen!

  30. OK. I’m hosting a party on Saturday and THIS is now on the menu. Awesome!

  31. I totally need to try that liner! And this dip looks amazing. It’s always such a plus when it can be made in the slow cooker too!

  32. How easy is that? I never woulda thought of it. We made Osso Bucco in the slow cooker over the weekend and could have used the liner for sure. I have a cookbook I”m going to have to ponder through to get some more inspiration, but this is smarty smart!

  33. Emily says:

    I just bought a slow cooker yesterday for this recipe! I bought a 4.5 qt one though so I was wondering (I’m new at this) if I double the recipe does that mean I have to double the cook time?

    • Deborah says:

      @Emily, you shouldn’t have to double the cook time. Everything just needs to melt together, so the original cook time should work. Hope you love it!

  34. Monica M. says:

    This was really good but really thick. I don’t like my dip runny but not thick either. I think I had to add an additional cup of milk by the time I was done with it. I also think 2 hours might be a little much. I might reduce to and hour and a half next time. I made a double batch too without a liner. Its an awesome recipe but I would change the liquid part and cooking time. Thanks!

  35. Alex says:

    Hey Deborah! I pinned this awhile ago for the Superbowl! I have a 4.5 crock pot. If I didn’t want to double the recipe (just me and my hubs) would I just cook it less? Maybe an hour on high? Thank you :)

    • Deborah says:

      @Alex, you will probably cook it for a shorter amount of time – the slow cooker is mostly just melting everything together. Just keep an eye on it and it should be fine!

  36. Jennifer says:

    Hi, thanks for this post! Can’t wait to try it. Do you think I could use regular baby spinach from a bag, rather than a frozen package of spinach?

  37. Jill says:

    This says 6-8 servings, but what size servings are we talking about? I am trying to plan for a large crowd and need to know what size servings?

  38. Jen Williams says:

    Add crushed red pepper and it adds a little something!
