Crockpot Spinach Dip

Day 2 of your Valentines Day Dinner...the appetizer, yuuummm!!

Hubs and I have an unnatural obsession with Totinos Creamy Spinach chip dip. We luurrrve the stuff! I figured that there has to be a way to make this stuff at home so we can enjoy it more regularly.

Which could be a bad thing, but I'm choosing not to look at it in that light. I keep telling myself that since I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese and light mayo that it's not that heavy in the calorie area. It would probably be best if I hit the gym tomorrow anyways, just in case ;)

I was pleasantly surprised at how close to the real thing this came. Hubs said he thinks it's still missing something, but I'm 100% content with how it turned out! I've already decided that the Totinos dip will be no more. Hubs can take it or leave it. I'm pretty sure he'll take it.


Ingredients...



...1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen, chopped spinach
...1 (8 oz.) block cream cheese
...1/2 c. mayonnaise
...8 oz. cheddar cheese
...1/2 tsp. Tabasco Sauce

Directions...


Place all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on high until melted, creamy and heated through. Place slow cooker on a lower setting to keep the dip warm for serving purposes. Serve with tortilla chips, bread, bagel chips or crackers.

I love spinach dip!
The best recipe I have found is on the back of the Lipton Vegetable dry soup mix. I use that recipe and add artichoke and water chestnuts. It is quick and really fabulous! So, if your hubby gets tired of this one, check that out.
Love your recipes!

I will have to try that one Chelsey! Hubs said he thought this one was missing something - perhaps it was the dry soup mix!! Thanks!

I just had to make this when I saw it! I added garlic and a little extra cream cheese (1/3 of one that I had left over). It was awesome! Thanks!

Mary and Brendan - What a great idea to add garlic...I will try that next time as well!
