Angie's Yummy Spinach Dip

I love having excuses to make this dip. I was asked a couple of times today for the recipe. I thought I would post my take on the recipe. I found the original online and it claimed to be the same recipe as Kelsey's uses for their spinach dip. I disagree that it is their recipe, but great nonetheless.

8oz cream cheese
3/4 tsp garlic powder (non garlic salt)
1/3 cup of shredded 4 cheese blend (I usually use the President's Choice Italian 4 cheese blend)
1/4 of a red pepper finely chopped (or more or less if you want)
1 or 2 green onions finely chopped
1/2 package frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry)
1/2 cup of shredded cheese to melt on top
pinch of cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 400F.

Mix cream cheese, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and shredded cheese with hand mixer. Add green onion and red pepper and blend on low until just mixed. Add spinach and blend on low until just mixed.

Transfer into oven safe dish and sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded cheese on top.

Bake uncovered for 15-18 minutes or until cheese bubbles around the edges.

Let stand for 5-7 minutes before serving. Serve with tortilla chips or pita chips (from Costco).

I usually double this recipe for gatherings. According to the recipe a single recipe serves four.
