I used 4 oz of cream cheese because that's all I had, and I didn't notice the difference. However, I must confess I added a few extra slices of bacon. I also used fresh spinach instead of frozen, and this is good!

I saw this in the Food & Family magazine too - and it was great! Very creamy and a little spicy. I used the 2% Velveeta and 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I also made it once with veggie bacon from Morningstar Farms substituted for the meat when some vegetarian friends were over, and they gave it a thumbs-up as well. Thanks for posting it!

This was very good. I left out the bacon as am a vegetarian. Thanks for a great recipe.
