I love this spinach artichoke dip. It is great with veggies or as a filling in omelettes It is a great dish to bring to parties that everyone will like!
I used my 2 quart crock pot for this recipe. It made about 3 cups of dip or four 3/4 cup servings.
Each serving has approximately 3 grams of net carbs
1 jar (6.5 oz) marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped.
2 tablespoons diced red onion
1 tablespoon butter
1 (10 oz) package chopped frozen spinach, thawed and well-drained (I squeeze mine)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
2 cups Colby-Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup cream (you can substitute half and half)
Creole seasoning or Cajun seasoning to taste (I use 1/2 teaspoon)
I eat this raw veggies and low carb tortilla chips
In a skillet, saute the artichokes and onion in butter until the onion is tender. Add the spinach to the skillet for a quick saute as well. Add everything from the skillet to your crock pot and the remaining ingredients. Heat through on LOW until the cheese is melted and then turn to warm.
In a pinch I have skipped the saute step and just added everything to the crock pot. I like the added flavor sauteing gives to the dip, but it still tastes great, even if you don’t have time to saute.
