    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Adapted from Best of the Best from Colorado, this recipe is so named, according to their description, because the recipe poster's father was a sheep rancher. This is supposedly a best selling recipe on the menu at River City Cafe in Colorado. I have not tried this yet, but since any spinach dip calling for fresh spinach appeals to me, I wanted to share it. This is very different from the usual spinach dips. I have never seen another version quite like this one. I am guessing at the cook time, which I will update once I try this. This makes enough dip for your whole herd! ;). To me, this is perfect football party food!

      I love this recipe. I have never made it myself but acquired it from a friend who brought it to a potluck. She gave me this recipe exactly. It is delicious.

      This is a very easy dip to make. I was nervous after putting all the ingredients together because it is really liquidy (is that a word?)anyways, once cooked it did firm up quite a bit. It has a very nice flavor and we served it with tortilla chips. It does make quite a lot, I know it says gallon in the servings, but reading gallon and then actually seeing gallon is two totally different things. I made the dip for New Years and still have plenty left. I would thing that the recipe could be halved quite easily. Over all, a good dip!
