How To Make Air Fried Spinach Dip Recipe
- Mix spinach dip ingredients together in a bowl.
- If using a smaller air fryer smaller, finding a baking vessel for a whole batch of dip that will fit in the air fryer might be challenging. You might have to cook it in two smaller, shallow batches or use an accessory pan like we did. It’s a 6″ baking barrel with a handle that is deep enough to fit the whole batch of dip. It’s also small enough to fit our 3-4 qt. air fryers. There’s also accessories for larger air fryers too.
- If using a larger air fryer or a tower rack-style fryer, finding a vessel that fits the whole batch is easier. Or you can buy the accessories here like we did.
- Air Fry at 300°F for about 35 minutes, stirring halfway during cooking.

What are the Best Air Fryers?
There’s so many on the market now. You just need to research and find the ones that fits your needs, capacity and style. We group the basket style air fryers into 2 main size groups: 3-4 qt range & the 5-6 qt. range. Here’s our favorites:
Cosori 3.7 qt. Digital Air Fryer – “That’s a stylish Air Fryer” was said as we unboxed the Cosori. Beyond being stylish, it has cooked great. The basket is not as tall and wider than most in its size group, which is perfect. You’ll have a lot better results in an air fryer with single layered, spread out foods, then with ones piled high and thick.
The non-stick basket style (non-wire base) & smoothness of the basket tray is also great for clean up.
Tidylife 4.2 qt. Digital Air Fryer – We have been super pleased with the TidyLife Air Fryer. Texture for several dishes came out noticeably better than many other brands. This one tends to cook a little hotter and quicker.
The non-stick basket style (non-wire base) & smoothness of the basket tray is great for cleaning up.
We like that this Tiluxury 5.8 qt has the non-stick basket (non-wire base). Makes for less sticking for delicate meals (ie baked fish fillets). And we like the digital interface (easier cleaning).
GoWise 5.8 qt. Digital Air Fryer – Another good larger air fryer. All the things we loved about the Tiluxury 5.8 qt, we love about this one too. Great size for families. Non-stick basket. Has a nice cooking range (180°F-400°F).
We’re super pleased with both this one and the Tiluxury. Choosing between the two is mostly up to which you like the look better.
We love the handled cake barrel because it’s deep enough to fit the whole batch. The deeper the dish, the longer it may take for the dip to cook through. So stirring the dip halfway through helps ensure all the ingredients cook evenly without burning the top crust.
- 8 oz. cream cheese , (1 pkg) softened
- 1 cup packed frozen spinach , thawed and water squeezed out
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup chopped water chestnuts , drained
- 1/2 cup minced onion
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Spray the baking vessel *see head note about vessel choice* with cooking spray or olive oil. Combine all ingredients together (cream cheese, spinach, parmesan, mayo, water chestnuts, onion, garlic powder, & black pepper) in a bowl. Mix to completely combine. Add the dip mixture into the baking vessel(s).
- Air Fry at 300°F for 35-40 minutes. After cooking for 20 minutes, stir the dip, and then continue cooking for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- If cooking anything less than the full volume of dip, cook for less time and keep checking until it’s finished with a brown crust.
- Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
- If cooking in multiple batches back to back, the second batch may cook quicker. Reduce the time some to avoid overcooking.
- Remember to set a timer to stir the dip as directed in recipe.
