Instant Pot Hot Spinach Dip is cheesy, creamy, and great for sharing. It’s full of stringy Monterey Jack and nutty Parmesan cheeses with hints of garlic and sweet onions. Since this spinach dip is made in the Instant Pot, it only takes minutes to make!

Hot spinach dip is a classic appetizer that is seen on hundreds of restaurant menus. It’s cheesy, warm, and comforting.

Frankly, a creamy spinach dip is an all around great dish. Our version isn’t a copycat recipe, but we still think it’s pretty amazing.

This recipe doesn’t have artichoke hearts like our crock pot spinach artichoke dip recipe.

Those are an easy addition, though. The best thing about this recipe is that it only takes minutes to make!

How to Make Hot Spinach Dip:

Assemble all the ingredients, so they’re readily available.

We like to use cheese shredded from the block not pre-shredded cheese. It tends to melt better.

Add the cream cheese, spinach, sour cream, garlic, onions, salt, pepper, and chicken broth to the Instant Pot.

There’s no need to thaw the frozen spinach. Just dump it in.

Close the lid, and set the Instant Pot to manual, high pressure for 4 minutes.

After the 4 minutes is up, do a quick release.

Remove the lid, and add the cheeses. Stir well to combine.

Serve the hot spinach dip immediately with chips, pitas, pretzels, or toasted bread.

Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

Tips for Making and Serving Hot Spinach Dip:

  • We don’t recommend freezing this dip. The sour cream has a tendency to separate after being frozen leaving the spinach dip grainy and unappealing. It’s best to keep it in the fridge and eat it within a couple of days.
  • We do recommend reheating it slowly on the stove top over low heat for best results. If you’re really hungry and don’t have the patience to wait for stove top reheating, the microwave will work. Just heat it on half power, and stir it frequently.
  • To cut calories and/or fat, use reduced fat cheeses, cream cheese, and sour cream. Just a word of caution, making substitutions may change the flavor, texture, and consistency of the dish.
  • If you like artichoke hearts, add them during the first step along with the cream cheese, spinach, and other ingredients. Be sure to drain them first!
