Pin This Recipe!

Instant Pot Artichoke and Spinach Dip Applebees Copycat is the perfect flavor combination of garlic, spinach, and artichokes are a classic trio of flavors, and then you add in the different cheeses, and it makes this recipe dynamite.


Spinach Dip is my all-time favorite appetizer at Applebees It’s a must-have every time I go. I have to say this copycat recipe is much better than the restaurant, much like Taco Bell Mexican Pizza, Texas Roadhouse Fried Pickles, Copycat Applebees Wonton Chicken Tacos, and copycat Panera’s Broccoli and Cheddar Soup.

This instant pot dip goes well with a Movie Night Snack Board.

16 oz of parm cheese! I only added 6… and here I thought i loved cheese 😜


Monday 28th of March 2022

way too cheesy for me; if i wanted to make a ton, i'd double the spinach. but this made a bucket, as it was. i only put in 5 oz of parm. it tasted good; i just like more spinach in my spinach dip. i'll make it again, to my own personal specifications. thanks for the jumping off place!

Tried to use the print version. The instruction portion doesn't show up on it. Kind of annoying.
