Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe
If you like cheese, you will love this spinach artichoke dip recipe. It is loaded with four kinds of cheese! That is my kind of dip!
To make this dip, you will melt some butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Reduce the heat to low. Add the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, Gruyere cheese, and ½ cup of Parmesan cheese to the skillet.
Warm the cheeses until they are incorporated and creamy.
Next, add the spinach and artichoke mixture back to the skillet with the cheese mixture.
Then, add the sour cream, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and paprika to the skillet. Mix the ingredients well.
Transfer the mixture in the skillet to a greased, oven safe baking dish, and top with the remaining ½ cup of parmesan cheese. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
