How to make low carb spinach artichoke dip:

  • Rough chop jarred artichoke hearts, mince some garlic, juice a lemon, cut some cream cheese into cubes, and chop parsley and green onions.
  • Add chicken stock, lemon juice and frozen spinach to the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  • Add the cream cheese, onions, jalapenos, parsley and garlic.  (Adding the ingredients in this order will prevent them from sticking!)
  • Pressure cook for 3 minutes (it will take around 13 minutes to pressurize). 
  • Once the 3 minutes are up, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for 5 minutes.  Then manually release any remaining pressure.
  • Stir the mixture together.  It will seem like there is too much liquid, but not for long!
  • Add Italian shredded cheese and grated Parmesan cheese, and fold it all together.
  • If it’s too thick add a little more chicken stock to loosen it up.

Can you freeze spinach dip?

You bet! To freeze the dip, transfer it to a resealable ziploc freezer bag. Pull it out of the freezer the day before you want to use it, and thaw it in the fridge.

Then to re-heat it, add some additional chicken stock and either microwave it, reheat in an oven-safe pan at 350 for 20-30 min, or saute in Instant Pot (watching it closely).
