Artichoke Jalapeño Dip

Creamy Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is a summer potluck must! Loaded with two cheeses, artichokes and jalapeños, it’s impossible to resist. 

One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen has always been to recreate recipes. Whether it is something that I tried at a restaurant or a pre-made item that I’ve bought from a store. I love to come home, go over the ingredients and try my hand at making it my own. This Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is one of those recipes.

A couple of weeks ago we went to dinner at a friends house and I was in charge of bringing over a quick appetizer. AWESOME. Appetizers are actually my favorite part of any meal. In fact, I could make a meal out of them. I decided to make a loaded cheese board so I stopped at Trader Joe’s to pick up some meats and cheese. That is when I saw Artichoke Jalapeño Dip in the refrigerator case and just HAD to add that to my board.

Because I mean, artichokes, jalapeños and cheese. Three of my favorite things.

The dip was a hit. Everyone loved it and as I stared at the ingredient list I thought, this will be SO easy to make at home.

What do you need to make artichoke dip?

For this Artichoke Jalapeño Dip you will need artichokes and jalapeños. Obviously. But you will also need cream cheese, granulated garlic (or garlic powder), pepper jack cheese and (SECRET INGREDIENT ALERT!) greek yogurt.

I just love using greek yogurt in dips. I will often use it as a substitute for sour cream like in my Caramelized French Onion Dip.  It adds some tang and creaminess without the heaviness of sour cream.

One of my favorite things about this Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is that it is served cold. So many artichoke dips are served hot. And while I love me some cheesy, Hot Artichoke Dip, during the summer, cold dips are where it is at. It’s not easy to bring a hot dip to a potluck. But a cold dip could even be made the night before. Just take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before serving so it has a chance to soften a bit.

When it comes to dipping, Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is great with pita chips, crackers, sliced cucumbers and toasted baguette slices.

Or just grab yourself a spoon. I wont’ judge.

Artichoke Jalapeño Dip is a MUST for potlucks and parties! #artichokedip #vegetarian #jalapeno #appetizer #footballfood

    When I see the shot of how you go with the first dip (although I guess there were many more dips before!), the first thing that comes to my mind is “Dip it deeper!” :-) I would love to try this deliciousness!

    I love artichoke jalapeno dip! It’s a summer favorite of ours that goes so well with low carb veggies or even spread on sandwiches for those of us who aren’t scared of a few carbs!

    I’ve been making a version of artichoke dip for years, but my recipe doesn’t include yogurt. I imagine it adds a nice subtle tang that’s probably absolutely delicious with all the other flavors. My husband’s birthday is coming up and he LOVES artichoke dip, so I’m going to try this. Thank you for the recipe!

    Artichokes are one of my favorite foods, and this dip sounds just prefect! Love the addition of yogurt. Never would’ve thought of adding it.

    Yes! Greek yoghurt is such a versatile ingredient. I love having it at hand, it just goes great with everything, sweet and savoury. I am unfortunately not the biggest jalapeno fan, but I would be a fan of the texture of this dip!
