Spinach Dip


am all about the quick and easy. As a mom of four with six people total living in our house, I do not get as much time in the kitchen as I would like. So, I like to find recipes that deliver maximum taste, quickly.

Ever since I’ve known my husband, his mother, Diane, has been making an incredible spinach dip. I think one of the first times, if not the very first time, I ever went down to meet his parents (they were in Monument, Colorado and we were in Fort Collins, Colorado) she made her famous spinach dip.

I have been hooked ever since and the dip is a staple at every family gathering and party we throw at home. It is great for birthdays, holidays, and football Sundays!

When I asked Diane if I could share her recipe on the blog, she laughed at me. She said this dip recipe has been around for ages and it isn’t anything special, but I was welcome to share it.

So, I give you the easiest and oldest (apparently) spinach dip recipe ever.

    This is a very common recipe, however most also call for water chestnuts. In fact, i think it’s on the back of the Knorr box, or at least it used to be! LOL
