Mossy Swamp Dip (Artichoke-Spinach)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 45 mins

A creamy, chunky dip full of flavor and texture! Great for Halloween or for an easy pot luck item (just don't call it Mossy Swamp Dip at your pot luck unless it's a Halloween pot luck or you enjoy freaking out your friends). Quick and simple enough to make for week night or double up a batch and have it for a classy movie night!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Thaw spinach and squeeze to get as dry as possible.
  3. Drain jar of marinated artichoke hearts and chop coarsely. Discard marinade.
  4. Thinly slice the green onions until you've cut up about 1/3 the green tops. Coarsely chop the remaining tops.
  5. Chop water chestnuts coarsely.
  6. Combine spinach, artichoke hearts, green onions, and water chestnuts in a large bowl until well mixed.
  7. Combine sour cream (use the real thing - lite sour cream doesn't do well in this recipe) and mayonnaise with garlic, pepper, and salt.
  8. Add cheeses, then blend this mixture together with the spinach mixture. Resulting dip will be very chunky.
  9. Pour into lightly greased baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes until heated through and slightly bubbly (if you're in a hurry, just nuke it for about 10 minutes -- it won't get crusty on top, but it will be hot and melty!).
  10. Sprinkle with red pepper sauce, paprika, and more cracked black peppers.
  11. Serve with hearty chips, large croutons, or over pasta!

Delicious...made as directed only using fresh spinach that I steamed in the micro for a few minutes...I have never used marinated artichokes in my spinach dip before but this was a hit at our football party for Boise State. Thank you for posting and this is going into my Favorites of 2012.
