24 chilled wonton wrappers
9 oz creamed spinach (frozen or freshly made)
3-6 oz marinated artichoke hearts* (approx. 1/4-1/2 cup chopped)
2 oz softened cream cheese (cut into 6-8 cubes)
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp salt or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper
spray oil (avocado, olive, etc…)
- Pre-heat oven to 365 degrees F.
- Next grab your creamed spinach and warm using package instructions. Drain your artichokes and chop into small pieces. Combine with spinach.
- Gently place won-ton squares in a mini-muffin tray spritzed with spray oil. For extra crunch you can also lightly spray the won-ton wrappers themselves with a little oil.
- Bake for 5 minutes to lightly crisp.
- Combine creamed spinach with your trio of cheeses and season with garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
- Spoon spinach mixture into lightly baked won-ton cups and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges of your won-ton cups are toasty and golden brown with a hot, melty spinach dip center.
- Dive in while they’re hot!
- For the artichokes, adjust amount based on preference. I like using 1/2 cup so there’s lots of marinated artichoke in every bite of spinach dip. If. you prefer less or a more mild flavor, try 1/4 cup. Alternatively, these can 100% be made without artichoke hearts if you prefer – add a little extra garlic or some sautéed shallots/onion in their place.
- No creamed spinach? No problem! Simply thaw/heat a 9 oz package of frozen chopped spinach and combine it with 4 oz softened cream cheese or a bit extra based on your ideal spinach-to-cheese ratio.
- Fresh minced garlic may be used in place of garlic powder if needed. Simply sauté it briefly in a little oil/butter to soften and release the fragrant aromatics of the garlic.
