A friend complained that she was spending #SuperBowlSunday at the home of someone who “only eats Keto,” like that was a fate worse than death for her snack choices during the game. To me that sounded like heaven. She had no idea what to bring, so I suggested she bring this #KetoFriendly dip with plenty of celery sticks and a couple of bags of pork rinds and she’d be the hit of the party. I haven’t talked to her today, but she didn’t end up beside me on my couch, so I assume she wasn’t booted from the party. 😉
Fiery Spinach Artichoke Dip
- 1 TBLS Butter
- 1 – 4 oz Can Diced Chiles (Any type and heat level) I used Mild Green Chiles today.
- 3/4 Cup Chopped Green Onion (white and green parts)
- 3 Cups Fresh Spinach, chopped
- 1 – 14 oz Can Artichoke Hearts (in water) drained & chopped
- 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
- 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Paprika
- 1/8 tsp Cumin
- 1 Clove Garlic, finely chopped
- 3/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 3/4 Cup Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 8×8 baking pan with butter. Combine the shredded cheeses in a bowl and set aside.
In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add green onions to the butter and saute for 2-3 minutes then add the diced peppers. Cook another 2 minutes then layer the spinach on top (do not stir in) and continue cooking another 2 minutes. Add the salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and garlic to the pan and stir to combine the vegetables and spices thoroughly. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine chopped artichokes, cream cheese, and mayonnaise, and mix. Stir in the vegetable mixture from the pan and 1 Cup of the combined shredded cheese (reserve 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top). Stir until completely combined.
Pour mixture in the greased baking dish and spread evenly. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm with zero carb pork rinds or low net carb veggies like cucumber slices, celery sticks, florets o broccoli or cauliflower, or slices of bell pepper!
This dip also doubles as a great topping for chicken breasts, pork chops, and even steak! I’ve even rolled it into slices of deli turkey breast, I’ve had sliced extra thick, for a different take on lunch. Let me know what you think or how you make it your own! #ThisGirlLovesToEat
