  • 2 cups Parmesan Cheese **grated or pre-shredded.

Dump & Pressure Cook

  • Secure the lid of the instant pot, seal the valve and PRESSURE COOK on HIGH for just 4 minutes. Once the cooking cycle is over the instant pot will begin to beep. Immediately perform a quick pressure release manually by moving the valve from the sealing to the venting position. Open the lid of the instant pot carefully once the floating metal pin on top of the lid drops. CANCEL the pressure cook mode.

Mix Cheeses

  • Hit the KEEP WARM mode and set it on LOW. You can change the heat settings by pressing the KEEP WARM button multiple times. Add the parmesan cheese and stir briskly to mix well until the cheese fully incorporates. Next, add the mozzarella cheese, stir until the cheese completely incorporates into the dip. Finally, add the Colby jack and stir well until the cheese melts and fully incorporates to form the creamy cheesy spinach artichoke dip. You can do a taste test and add salt if you feel like. I didn't add any salt.

  • Serve warm. If you love an ultimate cheesy bubbly top you can transfer the dip into a baking dish, top it with more grated cheeses and broil in the oven for 4-5 mins or until lightly golden and bubbly. Enjoy!

  • What kind of cheeses we can use? You can use whatever cheese you have on hand. Use what flavors you love. For instance you can use Monterey jack instead of Colby jack. You can sub the parm with gouda, gruyere or swiss cheese. You can even add a mix of parm & gouda or parm & gruyere or swiss cheese.
  • Spicy dip: Add more red pepper flakes. 
  • For bubbly cheesy top: Transfer the cooked dip in a baking dish, top it with more cheese and broil in the oven for 3-4 mins or until the top turns lightly golden and bubbly.
  • Heat intolerant: Skip the red pepper flakes from the recipe. They actually add an awesome kick to the dip but doesn't make it spicy.
