If you love onion dip and spinach dip you’re going to love this recipe! It’s creamy, full of flavor, and so good that you won’t be able to stop eating it!
I’ve said a million times how hot it has been here lately. I’ve gone on and on about how it’s too hot to be in the kitchen and how I’ve been eating cool salads and frozen smoothies. So, what do I do on the hottest day of the year? I go in the kitchen, turn the oven on and make this hot and creamy dip.
Probably not my best idea, but it was completely worth it! You must… I repeat: you must drop everything you’re doing and go make this dip. It’s SO GOOD!
In fact, it’s so good that I had a hard time getting through the photographing without devouring it. I was seriously going as fast as I could just so I could dig in. This was at 10:30 in the morning, by the way.
By the way, Kyle never got to taste it. I hid the leftovers in the fridge so that I could enjoy it when he wasn’t around. Yes, I’m greedy when it comes to food I love!
Talking about it has my mouth watering and I’m wishing that I still had some in the fridge. As soon as I took the last bite I started thinking about when I could make it again. Does anyone else obsess over food as much as I do?
Seriously, go make this dip. You’ll be back to thank me!
