A Southwestern food fan asked us to bring home a taste of her restaurant favorite—a cheesy spinach dip from Cheddar's Casual Cafe. Our Test Kitchen came up with this flavor-packed facsimile that's sure to be a hit at your next party. —Country Woman Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
A group of us in a foods class developed this recipe for the North Dakota State Beef Bash Competition, in 1995. We won the contest, and now my family requests this dip for all our special gatherings!

Everyone will simply devour this savory and delicious dip with shredded chicken throughout. The spicy kick makes it perfect football-watching food, and the recipe always brings raves. —Janice Foltz, Hershey, Pennsylvania
I'm a busy stay-at-home mom with a 3-year-old son. I love this recipe because it's easy to prepare in advance and keep refrigerated. Put it in the oven when guests arrive, and by the time you've poured beverages, the dip is ready. It gets gobbled up quickly!

Great for summer, this tasty appetizer is a must-have on weekend family gatherings at our cottage on Sandusky Bay. It's well worth the time it takes to grill the corn and cut it from the cob. —Cathy Myers, Monroeville, Ohio
