Zesty Spinach Dip

"Your ordinary spinach dip is usually kind of bland. This recipe gives a little kick. Once I tried it I never went back to my other recipe, you will be sure to get raves on this. You can tone it down a little but I don't recommend it."

  1. Wonderful dip, Bonnie!! I particularly liked the addition of the Tabasco sauce. I would have never thought to add it to a spinach dip. You are right, it gives it a nice zip. I will be replacing my old recipe with this one. Thanks so much. :-)
  2. Hey there-I used beef bouillon and a little extra tabasco-wow what a super dip! The flavors blend together well and no, I wont be going back to the bland spinach dip again! This is so much better! Di
  3. Sounds great have u ever added cilantro
  4. I was in a pickle as I usually use the vegetable soup mix to make my spinach dip and the only store didn't have it. :( So I found this one. I used 1 package of fresh spinach and finely chopped it with the food processor. I also added another 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1/4 tsp Tobasco, 1/4 tsp pepper, and about 1-1/2 cups of cheddar cheese. I took it to a fellowship at church and it was gobbled up.
  5. Delicious. That white pepper really spices things up. I like that I can control the ingredients versus using the boxed veggie mix that is the custom for this recipe. Thanks.


<p>I'm retired since August 2007 after 20 years from a library in central Wisconsin. I guess you could say my hobby is cooking. My husband has even gained weight since I am home more. <br /><br />I love trying new recipes and just started smoking food in my new smoker. So far I have only made salmon and turkey. Both turned out good. <br />We have two grown children and two granddaughters. <br /><br />We also love camping and try to go often. My husband loves fishing and hunting so we have alot of fish and venison and the freezer. <br /><br />I love Zaar and visit the site almost every day. I really love it when I get a good review on one of my recipes. I just wish members would alow zaar mail fo I could thank them for the review.</p>
