How To Make Spinach and Artichoke Dip

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup white onion (or yellow onion, diced )
  • 1 ½ tbsp garlic (minced )
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup chicken stock (or 2 tbsp crumbled bouillon cubes)
  • 1 ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (freshly grated )
  • 1 ½ tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed )
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 12 oz frozen spinach (defrosted, drained, & chopped)
  • 6 oz artichoke bottoms (drained and cut into 1/8-inch slices, canned )
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese (finely shredded )
  • 3/4 tsp hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
  1. In a large saucepan, warm the olive oil and butter together over medium heat.

  2. When the butter has melted, add the onion and cook until wilted, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 min.
