“I entertain a lot and this crowd-pleasing dip is fast and fabulous!” writes Suzanne Zick from Maiden, North Carolina. With its rich flavor, no one will ever guess it was made in a microwave!


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Assorted crackers


  1. Cook spinach according to package directions for microwave; drain and squeeze dry. Set aside. Place onion and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave at 70% power for 2-3 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring once; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and whipping cream until smooth. Fold in the spinach, artichokes, cheeses, cayenne, pepper and onion mixture.
