Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip
I'm all about the dip, and really I'm all about appetizers. Appetizers for lyfe. I'm serious, I would rather have appetizers for dinner and I think that's because I just like to take three bites of lots of different things.
I don't love chips, personally, so I'm totally scooping this Crockpot spinach artichoke dip with homemade crostini. And I'm really okay with having that for dinner. We made this for family movie night, which we have at home once a week. Family movie night is the perfect excuse for making a few appetizers and letting everyone eat at their own pace. Another family favorite is my Movie Night Pizza Rolls, have you made those yet? Do that.
Making spinach artichoke dip in a Crockpot is ideal for entertaining because you can prep ahead of time and check one more thing off your list before guests arrive.
