Copycat Applebee's Spinach Artichoke Dip
If you're craving Applebee's spinach dip, then you've just found the perfect recipe!
When your friends dip their chips, French bread, or veggies into this copycat Applebee's spinach artichoke dip, they'll think you picked it up from the restaurant. They'll be shocked to learn you made it yourself!
This dip will really go fast at parties, so make sure you get some before it's gone. Not only is this spinach artichoke dip great for dipping, but it can also be served on a pizza or sandwich.
One of our favorite things about this recipe is that it's really easy to make. All you need are a few ingredients -- you might already have most of them on-hand -- in order to create an appetizer that will have everyone going back for seconds!
We think that using jarred Alfredo pasta sauce is a really clever idea for this recipe. It add tons of flavor and a great creamy texture, but it requires no complicated prep at all.
Serve up a big bowl of this dip to your family the next time you have a special occasion or fun event to watch on television. Or, maybe this fun appetizer is just what you need to spice up an ordinary weeknight!
Either way, make it soon so that everyone can enjoy.

Recipe Tips from The Editor
Do Ahead: Measure out and pre-chop all of your ingredients the morning of your party. 45 minutes before your guests arrive, defrost your spinach under running water and preheat your oven.
Now you can easily combine your prepped ingredients and have your spinach artichoke dip in the oven in just a few minutes!
How to Store Leftovers: Transfer leftovers into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Use within two days.
How to Reheat Leftover Spinach Artichoke Dip: In a microwave-safe container, heat dip in the microwave for 30 seconds (for a small amount of dip) to 2 minutes (for larger amounts). Heat until dip is steaming hot all the way through.
To reheat spinach dip in the oven, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Reheat dip in an oven-safe container for 10-20 minutes, depending on how much dip you have left over. Heat until dip is steaming hot all the way through.

My daughter's favorite thing to eat is spinach and artichoke dip. She loves every recipe of it and this sounds like a nice one to try. I usually make one with the spinach, artichokes, parm cheese, mayo, sour cream and mozzarella. It's so yummy. I like serving it with either pita chips or the Tostidos Multi Grain chips. I like those because they are so hearty and good. I can't wait to make this for her.

This is a great recipe that I'll have to reserve for events that involve a number of people. Due to some medications I'm taking, I have to restrict my intake of spinach, otherwise I could easily and happily devour an entire dish of this by myself. So, if it's split among as a group, I can indulge a little bit without screwing up my meds very much.

This is so good! This is a meal. I love making dips and just having them instead of meals and this is a great one. I love to serve it with my favorite gluten free cracker. For the rest of the gang, French bread would be a good go along. I really never thought I would lie it since I am not a big fan of spinach. Wrong! It is great.

Oh my goodness...everytime I go to Applebee's I have to order their yummy Artichoke Spinach dip! If you haven't tried it, you don't know what you're missing. I've tried guessing how to make it at home a few times and even purchased an actual artichoke...lol That was an experience all by itself! I can't wait to try this recipe...it'll be perfect to snack on for the holidays or any day for that matter!

I love this recipe. Spinach artichoke dip is one of my favorite appetizers at restaurants but it is expensive and they don't give you much. I know this isn't the healthiest of appetizers, but it's not meant to be a meal, but just a treat to share with other people.

I absolutely love this recipe it combines my two favorite things artichoke dip AND appetizers At every holiday party or family get together it is always requested I bring my famous spinach-artichoke dip I however found a rather simplistic way of making this dish when upon cooking I realized I didn't have half the ingredients at home Keeping the spinach and artichokes or just one or the other use oz containers of Parmesan cheese and instead of the very fatty Alfredo sauce use Miracle Whip Mixing those few ingredients will create the same amazing tasting appetizer with half the amount of ingredients I have to say that adding the garlic to this dish is a fantastic idea I have always been a fan of garlic and cant believe I havent thought of this before It works perfectly with the tang of the artichokes You better believe it will be added to…Read More my next batch Maybe tomorrow
