Great twist on the usual spinach dip! There is a nice little kick from the jalapeno, and the tomatoes add a nice flavor. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

I tried a different spinach dip for a party but this one is much better. I have made this for years and it's great!

Yummy!! This was a great dip. It went together quickly and easily and was full of flavor. I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic with the onions and I used only 1 can of olives (we are not huge olive fans). I baked this in a 7"x11" baking dish for the full 35 mins. Next time, I might try adding some canned, chopped green chiles and a can of drained Rotel tomatoes instead of the fresh tomatoes. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. *Made for Potluck Tag*
