Houston’s Spinach Artichoke Dip

Houston's Spinach Artichoke Dip appetizer recipe

This is a spin on one of our favorite appetizers – the famous Houston’s Spinach Artichoke Dip! Andrew asked me to make my version of it so that we can enjoy it at home. After a few trips to Houston’s for some R&D and rounds of testing, we’ve got it! Although it’s not exact, it’s safe to say we’re hooked! It’s the PERFECT holiday appetizer that you can prep ahead and pop into the oven before serving. I love serving it in smaller dishes but you can also use a larger baking dish. This is sure to be a crowd pleaser, I HIGHLY recommend trying this copycat recipe out this Thanksgiving. Don’t forget to serve with plenty of tortilla chips!
