Fresh Spinach & Artichoke Dip (Aka Sheep Dip)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

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.
