What to dip in it? Carrots, celery, and other cut veggies. Triscuits and Wheat Thins are a favorite, or toasted baguette slices. I even took the leftovers and put them over scrambled eggs to give breakfast a zing!

Hot Spinach Dip

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 8 oz cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese, cubed
  • 8 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup milk, plus more later
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Steps:

  1. Line or grease your crock pot, then add everything in.
  2. Cook on low for 2-3 hours, stirring after each hour. It will probably need another few tablespoons of milk at some point.

If you reheat this, add more milk each time. Otherwise you end up with a rubbery mess.

    1. You can also do it on a stovetop, you just have to pay more attention to it so it doesn’t burn. That’s why I like the slow cooker – I can walk away and work on other stuff while it cooks!

  1. This looks absolutely delish! I used to make something similar, just a little bit different ingredients. Haven’t done it a while, thanks for the inspiration!
