Do I need to thaw the frozen spinach for this dip?
No. It's not necessary to thaw the spinach because the pressure cooker will take care of that for your. Use a 10 oz spinach block or loose, frozen spinach. Either way, there’s no thawing, rinsing, or squeezing the water from it. Just drop it in and let the Instant Pot do the rest!

- If you want the artichoke dip thinner, add a splash of reserved artichoke brine to adjust consistency.
