Artichoke Jalapeno Dip Recipe

This classic dip recipe is one of the most versatile that we’ve ever made. It tastes great served cold like a cheese ball, warm in a slow cooker or baked in the oven.

The mixture also makes an amazing filling for stuffed mushrooms when topped with panko bread crumbs!

Creaminess from the dip perfectly complements the salty flavor of tortilla chips. Wheat Thins or Triscuts are also good to dip in this artichoke and jalapeño mixture.

Our first test with this dip was during Bible Study and the girls are split between a cold or warm dip.

Adding cooked and crumbled zesty sausage like in our Fiesta Sausage Dip or shredded chicken like in our Buffalo Chicken Dip would make this recipe more meaty and savory.

Serving this dip with Pepperoni Pinwheels and a few other finger foods can make a casual meal.

Fresh Jalapeños Compared To Jarred or Canned 

Fresh jalapeños were definitely voted most popular in our test of fresh and jarred. The jarred and pickled jalapeño slices were pickled, soft in texture and have a much more spicy flavor.

We unanimously prefer fresh jalapeños to slices from a jar.

Cold Dip Versus Warm Dip

The fresh jalapeños are brighter green, crunchier and really stand out in a cold dip.

Warm dip is creamier, but the cold dip allows for more of a pop of the fresh vegetable and jalapeño flavor.

In our taste test the crowd was split on their preference. One friend prefers cold dip because it allows the jalapeños to be more of a star of the show.

More of us like the baked dip that is super creamy. The warm dip sort of melds all of the flavors together more.

Whether to serve the dip warm or cold really comes down to personal preference!

How to Make Jalapeño Artichoke Dip

Drain artichoke hearts. Use a food processor to finely chop artichoke. I have a mini food processor so I do a few batches.

In a medium sized mixing bowl mix together sour cream, mayonnaise, artichokes and grated parmesan cheese.

Stir well, taking care to mix up any clumps of parmesan.

Add a squirt of mustard and chopped jalapeños.

Stir it all up until it’s creamy and beautiful.

Pour into a lightly greased 8 x 8″ baking pan and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes at 350°F until dip is warmed through. It will start to get light brown on the edges and begin to get bubbly.

We like to wash, seed and chop a second jalapeno to sprinkle on top for a more colorful and festive look!

Crock Pot Option

This dip can also be mixed up and warmed in a crock pot on low for about an hour.

It will easily fit in a small crock pot which may take a bit longer than a medium sized crock pot to heat up.
