Classic Spinach Dip

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.”

    I also wilted the spinach on the stove. I don't normally like water chestnuts, but I chopped them very finely, and it was pretty good. I found it difficult to locate vegetable soup mix.

    This was good but not the best spinach dip I have had. It was a tad bit sour. I might make this again but then again I might try another recipe for spinach dip.

    I've been making this dip for years (same ingredients at least) and absolutely love it (especially on game day). To make it even easier, you can use frozen, chopped, spinach that you've thawed and drained.

    Very good dip!I wilted the spinach stove-top, since I prefer not to nuke food.I served the dip with sliced red & yellow bell peppers, cucumbers and baby carrots. It made a beautifully colorful platter.
