Winner, winner…


Winner winner chicken dinner!  Well, not really, but that just sounded fun.

Today’s recipe comes to you after making it twice during our trip up north.  I know it is one of the oldest recipes in the appetizer books, but it was actually the first time I had ever made it myself.  The dip was a hit at both events in which it debuted (Christmas Eve festivities and baby shower) and the easy prep was a hit with me.

This easy spinach dip can be served inside a hollowed out bread bowl, or simply in a bowl served with cut up bread and veggies on the side – I did it both ways and must say that the bread bowl made for a snazzier presentation.





Not only is it easy, tasty and sure to be gone in minutes but it would be perfect for any upcoming Super Bowl Party! 

Here’s how:

Spinach Dip

Print this recipe!

1 (10 oz) package of frozen chopped spinach - squeezed dry*.
1 (16 oz) container reduced fat sour cream
1 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 pkg. of Knorr or Lipton Vegetable recipe mix (you can usually find this near the soup / bullion in the store)
1 can (8 oz) of chopped and drained water chestnuts (optional)

Combine all ingredients and chill 2 hours.  Serve with veggies and cut up bread or in a hollowed out bread bowl.

  • *the easiest way to thaw frozen spinach in the refrigerator, but if you don’t have time pop it into the microwave on defrost for 5-7 minutes or until thawed.
  • Regular vs. reduced fat versions of sour cream and mayo can be substituted, but why add calories when the flavor tastes just as good?)
