This quick and delicious spinach-artichoke dip may just be the perfect addition to your New Year’s Eve, whether you’re hosting a get-together with friends or welcoming the New Year quietly at home. The hot, cheesy goodness of this dip is even more scrumptious served alongside Stacy’s Pretzel Thins.

  • 2 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated (plus more to sprinkle over the top)
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1 bag (7 oz.) Stacy’s Pretzel Thins
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 3-5 minutes. Remove spinach and garlic from skillet; set aside.
  3. Add artichoke hearts to the skillet and heat until liquid is cooked off and artichokes deepen in color. Remove artichokes from skillet and chop; set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, melt the other tablespoon of butter and stir in 1 tablespoon of flour until it makes a paste. Pour in milk and stir, cooking until the mixture starts to thicken.
  5. Add cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese, as well as a dash of cayenne pepper. Stir until all cheeses are melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy. Add chopped artichokes and spinach to the sauce; stir.
  6. Add additional Monterey Jack cheese over the top and place in oven. Bake uncovered for 12-15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and dip is a light golden brown. (Note: If you are not using a cast iron skillet, place the dip in a 9”x9” baking dish before adding it to the oven).
  7. Serve warm and enjoy with Stacy’s Pretzel Thins.
