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
"One taste of this outrageously delicious dip and your guests will not stop eating it until it's gone," promises Michelle Krzmarzick from Torrance, California. "The savory blend of artichokes, spinach and Parmesan cheese is positively addictive! It taste even better if you make it the night before and chill it in the fridge before baking."
Whenever I go to an event, I'm always asked to bring this hot dip. Five types of cheese make it a standout and oh-so delicious. I love its party-ready convenience— I serve it straight from the slow cooker, so set-up and clean-up are a breeze! —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota
In Stafford, Texas, Joyce Fogleman requests: “Everywhere I take this dip, I’m asked for the recipe. I don’t make it at home because I’m afraid that’s all I’d eat the entire day. I’d love a downsized version I could make at home.”
Our taste panel just raved about this creamy low-fat spinach dip from Corrine Rupp in Statesville, North Carolina. Richly caramelized sweet onions and a hint of wine make for a decadently delicious appetizer—but this one’s guilt-free!
Comforting and creamy are just some of the words that describe Susanne Nonekowski’s warm Spinach Artichoke Spread. “You may have tasted a similar spread in a restaurant,” she writes from Oak Harbor, Ohio. "Served with crackers or veggies, it's an all-time favorite.”
