Why this Dip is Best

Anyone else do their regular grocery shopping at Costco? For those of us with teens who eat like bears about to go into hibernation (i.e. nonstop), getting our staples in bulk is vital.

Enter Costco. . . and my introduction to Artichoke Jalapeño Dip! 

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip is one of my favorite Costco splurges. I’m usually good at keeping to necessities (you know, like the family size packages of Oreos) but every now and then I need an indulgence.

One day, it dawned on me. I can make Artichoke Dip with jalapenos at home!

This is perfect on a cheese and crackers tray for a party or a dinner party appetizer! Since it’s served cold or room temperature, this Artichoke Jalapeno dip is a good choice for summer, too.

I love this just about every way imaginable: on crackers, sliced toasted baguette, scooped up with tortilla chips, or with veggie slices.

Pita chips and toasted bagels are other favorite vehicles for enjoying this creamy Artichoke spread. You could even use it as a spread for a sandwich or wrap!

It required no cooking or stove, just a few simple ingredients and a food processor.

How Spicy is it?

Ingredients needed to make artichoke jalapeno dip.

Artichokes. Jarred artichoke hearts provide the primary flavor of this dip. They’re a bit tangy and salty and begging to be whipped up with some soft cream cheese, parmesan and mayonnaise.

Jalapenos. Chopped peppers infuse the artichoke dip with a kick that makes you keep coming back for more.

I wouldn’t describe the dip as extremely spicy, despite the jalapeno kick. Even my friends who don’t enjoy as much heat in their food as me, enjoyed the balance of tastes in this appetizer!

I seeded the jalapenos first to imbibe the dip with flavor without overwhelming heat. That said, if you can’t get enough spice in your creamy dips, you could leave some of the seeds in for more kick.

How to Make Artichoke Jalapeno Dip

Chop the artichokes. Drain the jarred artichoke hearts, then add them to your food processor. Pulse a few times until chopped.

Add jalapenos. Add jalapenos into the food processor with the artichoke hearts and pulse until everything is finely chopped.

Make it creamy. Add some cream cheese, mayo, grated Parmesan and seasonings and pulse until everything is well combined and creamy.

Transfer the artichoke dip to a bowl and serve with all your favorite dippers!

Storing Dip

This cheese based dip needs to be stored in the fridge when you’re not eating it. It’ll keep well in an airtight container for about one week.

After you try this dip once, I can all but guarantee you’re doing to want a tub of this in your fridge at all times! If you have a big family who likes this for a daily snack, feel free to double the recipe.

Comments & Reviews

  1. I haven’t tried this dip yet (but I will!!). I put the Costco dip on scrambled eggs before serving and it is fantastic! It gets all melty and delicious and really adds a new dimension to boring scrambled eggs.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!|

  5. 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

  6. 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 🙂

  7. 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.

    1. 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!

  8. yeah, costco….it is becoming more difficult for me to shop there because they are constantly discontinuing products. like this one. gone never to return.

  9. Or…how about when it’s Super Bowl time and you don’t want to go NEAR Costco! Thanks for the recipe- we had to have it for our party!!

  10. I went to Costco to buy this dip as it my families ultimate fav only to NOT find it there…horror! Why do they do that?! I am going to try this tonight!! Tx for posting

  11. I love that dip!! I am looking forward to trying yours. Is this one that I could put in a little crockpot dipper and serve warm??

  12. I’m so glad I found your site. Amazing recipes. I have never had this dip before, can’t wait to try it.
