A few items and a microwave oven are all you need to throw together this warm cheesy dip. It's always gone at the party's end. My favorite way to serve the dip is in a bread bowl with bread cubes, but it's also good with tortilla chips or French bread slices. -Heather Millican, Fort Meyers, Florida

"When I make the creamy swiss spinach dip, everyone loves it & wants more of the dip. I put the dip in the crockpot to keep it warm & cube up a block of swiss cheese. My husband loves how easy this dip is to make."
