The Spinach Artichoke Dip from La Terra Fina tastes great and is highly versatile but it does have some drawbacks.
On the Positive Side

- Nice Chunks of Artichoke
- Good Value
On the Negative Side
- Container Size is Overwhelming Leading to Waste
- High Calorie Food
- Short Storage Life
The Spinach Artichoke Dip tastes great but I usually can’t finish the massive container. I am happy to buy the dip for special occasions but this is not a standard item I keep in my refrigerator.
The Spinach Artichoke dip is extremely versatile and can be used in a lot of ways.
For simple snacking you simply can’t beat dipping in with a hearty whole grain crackers. This combination layers savory and creamy on top of a layer of savory and crunchy and it is amazing.
The dip also makes a great sandwich spread as it is really just a big pile of seasoned cream cheese and mayo. I checked out the La Terra Fina website and found they have some great recipes that use this dip as a key ingredient. Some of the tasty recipes include:
- Loaded Potato Skins
- Florentine Bread
- Stuffed Mushrooms
- Baked Pasta Shells
- Au Gratin Potatoes
You could also add the dip on top of the La Terra Fina quiche from Costco for a great combination.
The dip will keep in the refrigerator for five days after opening and should not be stored in the freezer. If serving as a dip then it works great either cold, straight from the fridge, or warm after being heated in the microwave.
