Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip Made In An Air Fryer
Dip made in an air fryer. . .I know, CRAZY, right!?!
It’s true. Not only is this Air Fryer Spinach Artichoke Dip easy and tasty, but, it is ready in just about 15 minutes. We start by cooking the spinach and removing the remaining liquid. This is a very necessary step to prevent a watery dip. You can use frozen chopped spinach, see recipe notes.
Once the spinach is prepped it’s time to mix then air fry. That’s it.
The only thing about making dip in the air fryer is that you are at the mercy of the size of your air fryer. So as long as you don’t need a dip to serve 12+ people then air fryer dip is a great option. This is perfect for when you are preparing a large feast and have limited room in the oven; now you can make your appetizer right in your air fryer.
