Simple, creamy, luscious and TO DIE FOR come to mind when you dip a chip into this wonderfully delicious (and simple!) Spinach Dip; a dip that will certainly have your guests wanting to double dip!
My name is Michelle and I am seriously, I mean SERIOUSLY, addicted to Spinach Dip. How serious you ask?
Before concocting a recipe for this deliciously creamy, luscious and simple (!!!) dip, I’d found myself going to restaurants to get a fix. An unhealthy, eat the whole appetizer for supper, type fix – and this, definitely needed changing.
It did, but now whenever guests are coming over can you guess what I’m making? YES. This awesome recipe! PS. I’ve made it twice in the past five days.
Warning: It may also make your guests think you’ve been hard at work preparing a great spread for their taste buds. You, dear reader, will know that it wasn’t hard at all – but your guests don’t need to know that (obviously mine know now)! But nonetheless…
After rendering those onions to a translucent verging on honey-colored goodness, spinach is added with cream cheese and cooking cream. Mixed all together you get a thick dip that will certainly break any chip that tries to swipe a section.
I call this consistency: the guests are here consistency because the minute they enter the door and are settled I’m going to serve this dip, warm right out of the skillet with whatever consistency it has. Honestly, have no shame, you don’t need a fancy bowl when the dip is this good.
My favorite chip: pita chips! Not homemade ones, however, they might not be sturdy enough. I grab a bag of Stacy’s Pita Chips, but any good chip or cracker will be great!
Hope you enjoy!
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained of liquid
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 2 cups cooking cream
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add onions and saute until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add spinach, cream cheese and cream, stir to incorporate. Simmer until the cream cheese has melted and the dip has reduced slightly, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Serve warm with your favorite chips or crackers.
This yummy dip can be made a day in advance, store in the fridge in an airtight container. Warm before serving.
If you're making the dip the day of and you want to get slightly ahead, stop after the stirring in the spinach, cream cheese and 1 cup of cream and set aside. When ready to go, put back on the heat to warm up a bit and add the remaining cup of cream and continue as directed.
