Artichoke Jalapeno Dip: copycat Costco dip, spicy and delish! #copycat #dip

Anyone else do their regular grocery shopping at Costco? School is out for the summer on Friday, which means my kids are like bears out of hibernation. They will eat non stop for the next three months.

Honestly I don’t get it. They can go 5 days a week at school without snacking all day long, but once summer hits they are “STARVING” one hour after breakfast. Then ten minutes after lunch they want popsicles. For the entire neighborhood of course.


Artichoke Jalapeno Dip: copycat Costco dip, spicy and delish! #copycat #dip

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip is one of my favorite Costco splurges (I mean, you don’t count the giant box of Oreos as a splurge right…those are a necessity). Have any of you ever tried this dip? A few years ago they were giving samples and I dutifully bought the container. And pretty much every month I buy a container. Until one day, it dawned on me. I can make this at home.

Okay fine, the only reason it dawned on me that day was because they were sold out, or moved it, or stopped carrying it (GASP!). Regardless, I went in with a taste for my monthly dip, and it was nowhere to be found.

Enter…Aimee’s kitchen. I think this version is pretty darn close to the real thing! Let me know what YOU think. And if you’ve never had it, or don’t have a membership, now you won’t feel left out. Cause you can make it home!

    Sounds delicious! My son has been out of school since Friday and already I feel like the food is disappearing, and he’s only 5!

    Let’s face it: Anything Costco makes is going to be dangerously good. I thought I was safe, since I don’t go to costco very often, but here you go showing me how to make this at home :-) (I’m super excited to try making this for myself)

      Yep, make it at home!! DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. sorry, I wanted to be the voice inside your head for a second :)

        HAHA! Consider it done. How can I ignore such an adamant voice in my head? :)

    I use Bj’s but there is a Costco in the area. Kids are so funny a out their snacking in the summer. It’s like I have nothing to do so let’s eat! I bet this dip is so good with the artichoke and the jalapeño giving it a little heat! Yum!

    • posted May 29, 2013 at 10:23 pm

      Hmmm, nothing to do so let’s eat. Yep, that describes me too :)

    Well, look-y here! Another savory recipe from Shugarville! LOVE. IT. I love artichoke dips–especially with a little heat! I really need a dollop…now! Seriously…I am making this very, very soon. Can’t wait! Thank you muches for sharing, Aimee! xo

      I know. Savory Shugar? hehe. ENJOY the recipe Stacy!!

    I swear this is crack in that dip because I could eat that entire BUCKET of dip in a weekend.

    I need to try this so I can make some self control portions. :-)

    • posted May 29, 2013 at 10:24 pm

      yeah, it’s so easy to eat. Don’t forget all the calories consumed from the dippers too (pita chips???)

    OMG I hate the snacking. ALL the time! And our school eats lunch at 11:!5, so at 11:13 every day Jordan will want lunch, then four snacks before dinner. If only she’d eat this…but I’ll save it all for me!

    • posted May 29, 2013 at 10:25 pm

      I have a couple of spice loving kids who devour this with me. When I let them 😉
      My youngest ate lunch at 11:15 this year too, crazy early. Especially since on the weekends she doesn’t wake up until 10am.

    What an awesome sounding dip!

    One of my all time favorites — simply love artichoke and jalepeno and so does my family!

    When I first moved to CA about 10 years ago I used to get artichoke jalepeno dip at Vons grocery store and it was private labeled for them. I have never had the Costco one but based on what you wrote, and the pics of your dip, it’s probably the same dip. I had to stop buying it b/c I could inhale a little tub in a sitting. Seriously…I LOVE that dip. SO MUCH! I love spinach and artichoke dip but the artichoke/jalepeno combo trumps! Pinned!

    • posted May 30, 2013 at 6:47 am

      Thanks for pinning. I totally agree artichoke and jalapenos trump spinach artichoke!!!

  13. posted May 30, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Um I am totally with you on this one. We buy that dip very regularly and it is CRAZY good. The boys love it on everything :) Can’t wait to give this a try!

  14. posted May 30, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    I’ve never even seen an artichoke jalapeno dip! I see spinach artichoke all the time, but I LOVE the addition of jalapenos!

  15. posted May 30, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    I’m more of a BJ’s guy, but I’m always hearing the praises of costco so I’m curious.

    And the dip sounds awesome! My wife would love it, she’s a sucker for jalapenos.

  16. posted May 30, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    I’m the same way in the summer – eat a meal then 45 minutes later I’m looking for snacks. :) Artichoke dip would be awesome to have in the house in the summer with some tortilla chips! Never thought to make it myself – def. pinning this for later !

    This dip sounds incredible!!! We don’t have a Costco close, but my MIL does all her shopping there. I’ll have to have her pick me up some the next time we visit. AND, I thought a three-year-old complaining every hour that his “tummy hurts” (his way of saying he’s hungry) along with the “tummy hurts” jabber of his younger monkey-see-monkey-do brother was bad, I can’t imagine when they become teenagers. I will be shopping in bulk for sure!

    Wow, this looks fantastic. I am a total sucker for this dip at Costco. Now that I live over 8 hours away from the closest Costco, this is a gem! :)

    Just made this recipe following the directions exactly. The amount of salt made me nearly choke. I almost threw the whole thing away, but decided to try and save it by adding 8 oz of cream cheese and a can of spinach. It’s now edible, but still too salty. If I were to make it again, I’d leave out all the salt AND the mayo, possibly leave out the garlic salt, and increase the cream cheese to 8 oz instead of 6. And in case any of you are wondering, I love salty foods – chips, crackers, etc. This was just WAY too much.

    • posted Aug 14, 2014 at 8:25 pm

      My first question would be did you use kosher salt or table salt? There is quite a difference! And I have noticed some brands of garlic salt are saltier than others too! We make this all the time and have never really thought it to be salty! Sorry!

    I didn’t know they stopped selling this at Costco. This is one of my favorites and can only buy on certain occasions because I have no self control with this dip. I am def going to try your version and make it a little healthier with low fat cream cheese and mayo :) less guilt :)

  29. posted Nov 16, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    I could tell when I put fresh jalapeno’s in recipe, I didn’t think it was quite what I wanted. I went ahead and used one then added about 6 or 7 jarred jalapeno rings. It was perfect for me after that. Thanks…great recipe

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!|

    This dip is like crack!!! But it has to be heated!!! The warming makes it even more flavorful and creamy! Try it, you won’t be sorry!

    I am going to try this. We are having a Aphrodisiac party and there are two of the in this dip. I love the Costco dip but the rules of the party keeps me from buying it.
