Spinach and Artichoke Cream Cheese Balls


Jump to Recipe

Spinach and artichoke is one of my all-time favorite dips.  The savory blend of spinach, artichokes, and cream cheese is positively addictive and quite honestly, I could just eat it as is without any chips or bread.  This is why I created this recipe so you get all that outrageously delicious flavor in one…or two bites!  The pork rind and almond flour coating gives it a nice crispy outside while the inside is a ball of melty goodness.
