yummy treat

January 3, 2009

Kelsey’s Restaurant…home of the best spinach dip. I managed to find a recipe online. : )

served hot…I prefer baking the Pita Chips, rather than frying them.

Ingredients & How-To

8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1/4 cup (scant – not packed at all) freshly grated parmasan cheese
1 tablespoon (not packed) freshly grated romano cheese
1 tablespoon (rounded) very finely chopped sweet red pepper
1 green onion (scallion) white and green finely chopped
1/2 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup grated medium cheddar
pinch of cayenne pepper

*Pita..You must use Greek Style Pita’s for this recipe. The number you use depends on how many you’d like of course.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix first 4 ingredients with hand or stand mixer on medium until softened and well mixed.

Add next two ingredients and mix on med-low until just incorporated.

Add spinach and mix on low until just incorporated.

Transfer mixture to a small ovenproof dish and sprinkling cayenne on top to taste. Top with cheddar. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes or until bubbling around the edges.

Remove from oven and allow to set for 5 – 7 minutes before serving. Serve with fried or baked pita wedges.
