Cheesy-Easy-Hot-Spinach-Dip-Recipe

I have been craving some cheesy and hot spinach dip for a while now…Over 5 years I would say.

Generally, any spinach dip recipe calls for a lot of mayo and/or cream cheese. So I have been avoiding it and honestly was super scared to make it.

See, I’m not an appetizer girl because growing up we never served them and if we did, they were all made with mayo, cheese & fatty canned meats. I have very little experience baking appetizers…

And I know it’s spring outside, so this dip doesn’t make much sense, but it’s been my craving. And I finally decided to make it substituting the ingredients from the original recipe. Just used the common sense…

It turned out really good…Cheesy, full of flavour and with a right amount of everything.

No Mayo, Cheesy & Easy Hot Spinach Dip Recipe

I avoided the mayo completely as it’s just a killer, even organic and light versions. I just can’t get over the nutrition label. Sometimes you will see me using it in some recipes but in most part a jar of mayo lasts me a year, and I usually throw out the leftovers.

I served it with Ryvita multigrain rye crispbread. Great choice! Whole wheat stone crackers or pita chips would be great too!

      So I’m not the only one who never had a spinach dip before.:) Good to know.:) I thought I was the only one left in the whole North America.:)
      Your chocolate chip banana cookie pie looks ah-mazing! OMG, just noticed, it’s made with white beans and cauliflower! I so have to make it! And it’s chewy. Totally up my alley.:) Thanks.

    Your dip looks so cheesy and delicious! I’m not a big appetizer person for the same reasons; I usually stuck to eating the veggies and skipping the dip. I love using Greek yogurt instead of mayo, and I’ve been doing that for years with coleslaw dressing and chicken salad. Nobody has noticed yet!

    You realize that cheese and mayo have roughly the same type of nutritional value right? And any meat that isn’t rotten is going to be better for you than sugar and the stuff they use to make “low fat” stuff taste good . How horrible does this taste with all those preservatives in “low” or “reduced fat” ingredients instead of actual flavor? Low fat cheese, skim milk, and 0% yogurt, good lord, you might as well just eat nothing.

    Hi Olena, can fresh spinach be used in this recipe instead of frozen? Would any modifications need to be made?

      You will need to saute a lot of fresh chopped spinach until you have approximately 10 oz of it.

    We love spinach dip and this sounds great. I was wondering if I added artichoke hearts if I need to add more or less of anything.

      I would add less of spinach in equal amount otherwise it would be too dry. Try half spinach and half artichokes.:)
