Step by step photos and instructions below!
Like most Spinach Artichoke Dip recipes, the base is cream cheese, and sour cream with a little mayo. Check out the notes section for how to change these up and save a few calories!
This is one of my favorite things to bring, because it’s so easy and everyone loves it.
You simply add the ingredients (except the mozzarella and parmesan) to the pressure cooker, set it, and walk away. Add in the cheeses after cooking, mix together to create a masterpiece.
I keep it warm in a mini slow cooker if I’m having guests over, or use it to warm the dip whenever I arrive at a party. I’m pretty popular when I show up with this!
Why you’ll love this recipe:
- It takes 4 minutes of cook time. Seriously. Yes, it does take a little while to come to pressure (about 8 minutes) but it’s still under 20 minutes for this.
- It’s easy to make. Literally throw in the ingredients, and press go.
- Simple ingredients. Check if you have them all!
What to serve with Spinach Artichoke Dip
I like to serve this with garlic bread, vegetables, crackers or bread.
I have included step by step photos and instructions, as well as tips and tricks in the post. If you’d rather skip all that, scoot right on down to the full recipe card located at the bottom of the post.
What to do with leftovers
Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
You can also use leftover dip to make this epic Spinach Artichoke Chicken recipe from my friend at Aubrey’s Kitchen.
Add a little sriracha at the end when stirring in the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
You can use frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach if you prefer. I buy chopped spinach and keep it in the freezer for use in whatever I am making.
Greek yogurt can be used in place of the sour cream if you want to dial back the calories a little. Using low fat mayo, cream cheese and sour cream will also help.
Garlic powder or a little garlic salt can be used instead of fresh garlic if you need to. If you do use garlic salt, dial back the other amount of salt you add.
Chicken stock and chicken broth can be used as an either-or in this situation. We’re really just needing the liquid for the instant pot.
This recipe can be frozen after cooking. I recommend freezing in small portions, and reheating as many as you need. While cheese and dairy typically doesn’t freeze well, this is one of the few cases that I find it does! Mix thoroughly and heat until bubbling.
You can also pour it into a dish and top with some extra mozzarella cheese.

Instant Pot Cooking Terms
What is Natural Pressure Release – aka NPR?
A natural pressure release happens when the cooking time is over and the valve is left closed. The pressure decreases without doing anything. Your Instant Pot will automatically switch to the Keep Warm setting.
As soon as it switches to Keep Warm the pressure will begin to drop and will release the pressure by itself. You’ll know it’s done when the pin drops!
What is Quick Release?
Quick Release: this means to let the Instant Pot release pressure naturally for a few minutes. After the time has elapsed, switch the valve to “venting” to quickly release any remaining pressure. The pressure will release to a point where the pin drops, and you can open the lid.
