Crab Artichoke dip
This crab, spinach, and artichoke dip is packed with so much flavor and loads of cheese. It’s creamy and delicious just like my she crap soup, but with a little more tang! It pairs well with just about any cracker, pita chip, or bread like my rustic white bread. And the best part is that you can make it the night before and heat it in the oven the next day.

3 Mix in the seasonings. Add in the Worcestershire sauce, pressed garlic, black pepper, and salt. Mix well.

How long does this dip keep
You can keep this artichoke crab dip in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. Just cover it or pour it into a ziplock bag for storage.
Can you freeze crab dip?
Yes, you can! Place this Crab Artichoke Dip in an airtight container or ziplock freezer bag once it has fully cooled. If you are using a bag, lay it flat until it is frozen, then store it vertically to save room in your freezer. Your dip will last for up to 3 months in the freezer.
How to reheat it
To reheat, bake your crab dip at 350˚ for 40 minutes or until warm. If it was frozen, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight, or you can defrost it in the microwave (stir often to avoid excessive separation of the cheeses). If necessary, you can add a touch of cream to the dip as it warms to help reincorporate the ingredients.
