No appetizer spread is complete without one amazing dip, and this is it. Creamy, cheesy and chock-full of veggies, it will quickly become your new go-to appetizer. —Diane Speare, Kissimmee, Florida

"I made this for a pot luck dinner among friends and it was hit! Better than found at any restaurant. I now make a large batch and freeze it in smaller portions - Ready to defrost and take to any last minute get together! I serve it with tortilla chips."

"I followed the receipt with these few changes. I used canned spinach that worked really well. I hand grated the Parmigiana cheese, omitted the sweet red pepper since it already seemed to have enough flavors and I thought that it would be just too much. It turned out so well that we ended up having it (with freshly baked bread) for our dinner."

"25g of Fat in 1/4 of a cup is a bit high. You can lighten this up without sacrificing much flavor. Sub in light mayo, light cream cheese, reduced fat parmesan and you can cut it almost in half!!"

"This is a delicious dip with so many options!Sometimes I add green chile and omit the red pepper...or instead of mozzarella cheese, I use what we have on hand. It's extremely versatile, easy to prepare and TASTY!"
