SOOOO good! I have been making this for years, a GREAT recipe! Even tho this recipe is great as is, here are some of the changes I have made over the years: I only use 1 cup of onions and I usually prepare the day before, refrigerate overnite, then reheat. I also use only 1/3 tsp. cayenne. For me, it's easier to use two pkgs. of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry. I have found that 1T. of lemon juice and 1 T. of Dijon mustard are a nice addition. You can use half and half and the consistency is just as good. Sometimes I add some minced water chestnuts to add some crunch. If you are decadent like we are, add more cheese and a bit more sour cream. LOL Thanks for posting Abby Girl.
