Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 of a yellow or white onion, diced
- 1 jalapeño, finely diced (omit seeds if you don’t want it as spicy)
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 (5-ounce) bag of fresh spinach or about 1 cup of frozen spinach
- 1 (12-ounce) jar of marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped into ½ inch pieces
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (whole milk or 2% is great)
- 8 ounces plain cream cheese
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan, pecorino, or Romano cheese
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Heat a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
- Sauté onion for 5 minutes or until it begins to cook down and soften.
- Next stir in jalapeno, garlic powder, salt and pepper and cook for another minute or so.
- Add in spinach and cover the pan with a lid until spinach wilts.
- Turn off heat and stir in cream cheese, breaking it apart with a spoon until it melts.
- Stir in Greek yogurt and mix until well combined.
- Add the chopped artichoke hearts, parmesan cheese and ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese, stirring well to combine.
- Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
- Top with remaining ½ cup of mozzarella cheese and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
- Let cool for 5-10 minutes, then serve with tortilla chips, crackers, pita chips or veggie sticks.
- If you don’t have a cast iron skillet or oven-safe pan, you can prepare everything in step 3 and then transfer to a greased 9-inch baking pan and bake as directed.
- If you want a more flavorful cheese, we suggest using white cheddar instead of mozzarella or even pepper jack cheese would be delicious!
