I absolutely crave a creamy spinach dip! There’s nothing better on game day, Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve or any other excuse to dip into spinach dip. I make spinach dip with cream cheese and monterey jack cheese to achieve the creamiest, cheesiest spinach dip!
It takes only 10 minutes hands on time for a total of 30 minutes including bake time which makes it great for get togethers or when you need to bring a dish in a rush!
This easy dip recipe is made with cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, chopped spinach, monterey jack cheese, minced onion, minced garlic, red pepper, black pepper, and parmesan. It may seem like a lot of ingredients, but it’s a quick no fuss recipe made with a blend of spices for maximum flavor!
