Food Blog Search came to my rescue.
This dip is amazing. It was best hot, and I "tested" it many times before I left for the party. It was still great even after it had cooled down, and I continued to eat quite a bit throughout the night. Apparently others agreed, because I heard several people talking about it, and a lot of it was gone. It's creamy and cheesy, but not at all greasy, which is my main problem with most cheesy dips. The next time I need a dip, I know where to turn.
Hot spinach dip (adapted from White on Rice Couple)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, coarsely chopped
10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and drained
salt and pepper to taste
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
Heat oil over medium heat in a medium skillet, and then add onion and garlic and saute until tender. Stir in water chestnuts and spinach, season with salt and pepper, and cook for a few minutes. Add the cream cheese, parmesan, milk, and yogurt to the skillet and stir until cheese melts. Then reduce heat to low and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 min. Makes about 6 cups.
