I have a confession…I’ve never made spinach dip. Sure, I’ve made things that are dips with spinach in them (like this one with gorgonzola, or this one with caramelized onions), but I never made the standard, amazingly delicious spinach dip that I’ve had at so many parties. So when my friend Chris (of Little Guy Productions) and his wife brought spinach dip in a bread bowl to a party recently, I asked her what recipe they used (after I ate about half of the dip haha!). Kristen said she used the one on the back of the Knorr mix, so I decided to give it a try for our Superbowl party. It was perfect! I picked up a fresh loaf of bread from the local bakery and hollowed it out, filled it up with dip, and dug in! In my opinion, the water chestnuts are not optional – they’re required. They give the dip that awesome crunch. If you’ve never made this before, you really should…it’s sooooo good!
