Ingredients

  • 8 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 cup asiago cheese, shredded
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 12 ounce fresh spinach
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • s/p
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Dice onion and mince garlic.
  2. Heat a glug of olive oil over medium heat in a cast iron pan. Add onion and garlic and sauté about five minutes.
  3. Add spinach in a few handfuls, allowing to wilt entirely.
  4. Remove from heat, and allow to cool about five minutes. Meanwhile, melt milk, cream cheese, and half your asiago cheese over medium heat, whisking to make smooth. Turn heat to low.
  5. Squeeze as much liquid as you can stand to squeeze out of your spinach. Do your best. Now, turn your oven on to 425.
  6. Add spinach back to pan with milk, cream cheese, and half your asiago cheese. Add hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Turn off heat.
  7. Grease a casserole dish, use olive oil, that's fine. Pour spinach dip into pan, then top with remaining cheese. Bake in oven until the top is crusty, about 20 minutes. Serve hot with tortilla chips!

 

Yum

    When do you add the cream cheese?Unless I missed it it wasn’t added.It sounds good but that omission confused me.Also why tortilla chips won’t crackers or other chips work ,or do the taste goes better with those chips

      Hi Wendy! Sorry about that – add the cream cheese with the milk. I used an 8 x 8 pan, but use whatever you have – deeper if you like creamy dip, more shallow if you like a larger crusty top! And, finally, use whatever chips you want, I used tortilla chips because that’s what I had!
