Ingredients and Variations

Spinach – Frozen is best for this recipe because fresh spinach needs to be washed, trimmed, and chopped before using, while frozen is more economical and time-saving.

Water Chestnuts – Water chestnuts stay extra crunchy even after a few days in the refrigerator. Drain and chop them finely before using. Chopped celery or bell peppers provide a low-carb alternative to water chestnuts.

Base – Store-brand vegetable soup mix works in this recipe as an alternative to the name brand. Sour cream and mayo give spinach dip its velvety texture or you can add a little softened cream cheese for a thicker dip and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for a tangier flavor.

Variations – This recipe is perfect for adding in all kinds of extras! We like marinated chopped artichokes, chopped walnuts, finely sliced sautéed leeks, bacon bits, bay shrimp, or sliced jalapenos! A handful of shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese will make spinach dip extra creamy and cheesy!
