Four Cheese Spinach Dip

Recommended Posts

Four cheese spinach dip

 

It's not low fat, but it's soooo good. I've made it many times and have gotten rave reviews!

 

 

Ingredients:

8 ounces cream cheese

3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)

1/4 cup (scant - not packed at all) freshly grated parmasan cheese

1 tablespoon (not packed) freshly grated romano cheese

1 tablespoon (rounded) very finely chopped sweet red pepper

1 green onion (scallion) white and green finely chopped

1/2 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1/2 cup grated medium cheddar

pinch of cayenne pepper

 

 

Directions:

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

 

Mix first 4 ingredients with hand or stand mixer on medium until softened and well mixed.

 

Add next two ingredients and mix on med-low until just incorporated.

 

Add spinach and mix on low until just incorporated.

 

Transfer mixture to a small ovenproof dish and sprinkling cayenne on top to taste. Top with cheddar. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes or until bubbling around the edges.

 

Remove from oven and allow to set for 5 - 7 minutes before serving. Serve with fried or baked pita wedges and tortilla chips (nachos).

 

At Kelsey's this is served with deep fryed pita wedges. I found that oven baked (400 degrees for 5 minutes) were just as popular and substantially less fatty. For either you MUST use greek style pitas as they are far softer and more substantial than regular pitas. Greek style pita have little or no pocket in them.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
