Honestly, who doesn’t love Spinach and Artichoke dip?
Put it in a cup, put it in a bowl, put it on a chip…it doesn’t matter, just put it in my mouth!
As you might be able to tell, I love artichoke dip. For as long as I could remember it has been a staple at dinner parties, holiday meals, etc. and I am super excited to bring to you a new recipe in wonton cup form!
This Artichoke Spinach Dip Recipe is the perfect appetizer
These wonton cups make a great appetizer, pot-luck dish, or snack!
The dip is nestled inside a crispy wonton chip, so you can get it all in your mouth even faster. Plus there’s no double dipping!
It’s pretty simple to make; perfect for when you need to whip up something quick or if you are having an appetizer only dinner. They come together in less than 20 minutes!
Ingredients for Spinach Artichoke Cups
Spinach – I used frozen spinach but you can also use fresh spinach, just make sure it’s cooked, drained, and cooled before mixing it in with the other ingredients.
Artichoke hearts – marinated artichokes are best for this recipe, they’re super tender and flavorful. I haven’t tried making this dip with fresh artichokes so I can’t speak to whether that works or not.
Cream Cheese – believe it or not, cream cheese is what makes this dip so creamy!
Pro-Tip: if you have an egg cutter/slicer like this, it is a great quick/easy way to cube cheese!
Pepper jack and mozzarella cheese – at first I wasn’t sure about using pepper jack but I ended up loving it! If you’re looking for something more mild, you can substitute it for parmesan cheese.
Wonton wrappers – I love these because they’re light and crisp up perfectly. You can also use phyllo dough if you can’t find wonton wrappers but they aren’t as sturdy and might break easily.
You can usually find the wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section by the produce in the grocery store.
Other ingredients – garlic, red pepper flakes, and fresh parsley
How to make Spinach Artichoke Wontons
1. Make the Filling. Combine the spinach, artichoke hearts, cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl.
2. Bake the Wonton Wrappers. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a cupcake tin with olive oil spray and press the wonton wrappers down using your fingers. Bake the wonton wrappers for 5 minutes.
3. Fill the Cups. Fill the wonton cups with the filling and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the wonton wrappers are golden brown and the filling is heated through. Garnish with parsley and serve hot!

How to make them dairy free
If you’re dairy free or just watching your dairy intake, you can swap the cream cheese and cheeses for dairy free versions.
Spinach and Artichoke Wontons Recipe Tips
- If you don’t have a cupcake tin with small enough cavities, you could also use upside down muffin tins and assemble the cups between the divots. You may have to cook in more batches or use more tins in this case.
- Top with a bit of extra cheese and cook under the broiler for a minute or two at the end of the cook time. This will give your spinach and artichoke cups a melty, golden brown top. Just be sure not to let the cheese or the edges of the wonton burn!
- Can’t find wonton wrappers? You could also use egg roll wrappers, or even buy pre-baked phyllo cups.
Making Spinach Artichoke Wonton Cups in advance
To make this recipe in advance, first assemble all of the ingredients for the spinach artichoke filling and store in the fridge.
You can also bake the wonton cups ahead of time if you like, though I recommend just waiting to bake those until you’re ready to put everything together. They’ll be the most crispy this way!
Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe FAQs
Hate to break it to you, but it’s not the healthiest appetizer you can make. It’s pretty high in calories and sodium, but I think that’s what makes it so delicious!
You can reheat these Spinach and Artichoke Dip Wonton Cups in the oven at 300 F for about 5-10 minutes.
You can definitely make these wonton cups ahead of time! They reheat so well and crisp right up.
I don’t recommend freezing them though, so it’s best to make them 1-2 days in advance and store them in the refrigerator.
Yes, you can use fresh spinach; just remember there are extra steps!
If you use fresh spinach you will need to: trim the stems, roughly chop up the spinach, cook and drain it before adding it to the mix.
If you add it to the mix raw, it will release a lot of liquid while cooking and could cause your dip to become watery.
If you are looking for a low-fat or lower-fat version of this recipe you can try the following substitutions: low-fat cream cheese and/or low-fat and/or reduced fat cheeses.
