Canned artichokes, which tend to be mushy for any other uses, work well in dips as they blend easily with other ingredients. And by using frozen spinach, this recipe comes together quicker. If you want to prepare the artichoke dip ahead of time, cover and refrigerate before baking for up to 24 hours.
