Have canned artichokes, mayonnaise, and Parm? That’s all you need for this quick and easy artichoke dip. Add some salt and pepper if you want.

Dress it up with some minced garlic, or chopped green chiles or jalapeños. You can also try adding dill, lemon juice, sliced green onions, or sour cream, or even a little brown sugar.

Quick and Easy Artichoke Dip Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Makes 4-5 cups of dip


  • 2 14-ounce cans of artichokes, drained (water-packed, not oil!)

  • 1 cup of mayonaise
  • Salt and pepper


1 Coarsely chop the drained artichokes.

2 In an oven or microwave-proof baking or serving dish, mix together the chopped drained artichokes, the grated Parmesan cheese, and the mayonnaise.

3 Microwave on high heat for 5 minutes or bake in a 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes. If microwaving, pause occasionally to stir so that the dip gets evenly heated.

    I make this with crab added. It really elevates the dish!

    Used a tsp of cajun seasoning and it was gone in a flash with lots of compliments!

    Can leftovers of this dip be frozen?

    This is a tried and true recipe that I have been making for 20+ years and never fails to disappear quickly. However, I would never microwave this, it is so good straight from the oven (25 minutes at 350) with a nice brown top. I add 1 small can green chiles for additional flavor and serve with triscuit crackers.

    I agree, garlic and spinach is great as a little variation. Made this with a group of elderly French ladies at a cookery lesson I was leading and they all loved it!
