We know what you’re thinking—how could we not have come up with this before now? We shifted our priorities and found an excuse to eat dip for dinner with this spinach-artichoke soup. It’s creamy and cheesy, but loaded with rotisserie chicken and veggies like spinach and artichokes, making it a hearty dinner that’ll warm you from head to toe.

Expert Tips

  • We used rotisserie chicken for our testing, but any chopped cooked chicken will do. Leftover turkey would also work.
  • For even more cheesy deliciousness, top with additional shredded Parmesan cheese.
