- Pita Chips
- Crackers (Triscuits, Wheat Thins or Ritz Crackers)
Ingredients in Jalapeño Artichoke Dip
- Cream Cheese - make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature.
- Sour Cream - you can use either full fat or lite sour cream.
- Artichoke Hearts - canned or jarred marinated artichoke hearts or freshly baked artichoke hearts will both work great.
- Parmesan Cheese - use either grated or shredded Parmesan cheese.
- Shredded Cheese - we usually use mozzarella, but Pepper Jack would work great, too.
- Diced Jalapeños - canned jalapeños are considerably more mild than fresh jalapeños.
- Diced Green Chilis - these add a great amount of heat and flavor.
- Garlic Powder and Onion Powder - these add a nice sweet onion and garlic flavor without the chunky texture of fresh onions and garlic.
How to Make Jalapeño Artichoke Dip
- Mix the ingredients. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the room temperature cream cheese and sour cream. Using the paddle attachment, mix on medium speed until well combined. Add the chopped artichoke hearts, Parmesan cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, diced jalapeños, diced green chilies, garlic powder and onion powder to the cream cheese mixture and mix on low speed until well combined.
- Spread into a baking dish. Spread the dip into an 8"x8", 9"x9" or 12" round baking dish and top with the remaining ½ cup mozzarella cheese.
- Bake. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are bubbly and the top is golden brown.
- Cool and serve. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving with your favorite crackers, chips or veggies. Enjoy!
- This recipe works great as a make ahead appetizer. Just mix the ingredients, spread into your baking dish, cover and chill overnight.
- If you like things extra spicy, add in fresh chopped jalapeños.
- Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that it will mix well with the other ingredients. If you forget to pull it out ahead of time, you can transfer it to a microwave-safe container and heat for about 10 seconds at a time just until softened.
- It never hurts to season with a little extra salt and pepper!
- You can also make this recipe in a food processor. Just add the cream cheese and sour cream first and pulse until smooth. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and pulse just enough to break them up. Transfer to your baking dish and top with the extra ½ cup of cheese.
Storing and Reheating
- Making ahead. To make ahead, just mix your ingredients together, spread in your baking dish, cover and store in the fridge for up to 48 hours. When you are ready to bake, simply take it out of the fridge and let it sit at room temperature while you let the oven preheat for at least 30 minutes. Then bake as directed and enjoy!
- Refrigerator. Store covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- Reheating. You can rewarm in a 325 degree oven, or even reheat small portions in the microwave.
Can I Freeze Jalapeño Artichoke Dip?
You can if you absolutely must, but it’s not recommended. Cream cheese and sour cream have a tendency to separate a bit once they have been frozen and thawed.
