Author Notes: This dip seems to be a MUST HAVE at family parties and can be prepared quickly and served right away if needed, though I think it's better if made the night before or earlier in the day to allow the flavors to blend nicely. FUN TIP: If you have any left over, pour it over chicken, cover and bake for 2 hours on 350 degrees, then uncover, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and broil 5 minutes--Heavenly!!BeijingRose

Serves: 12

  • 1 Family Size bag of frozen spinach
  • 1 pint Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1 package Lipton's Garlic-Herb soup mix
  • 1 small can of water chestnuts, chopped
  • 1 bunch finely chopped FRESH cilantro
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  1. I microwave my bag of spinach for 10 minutes OR you can simmer for no more than 6 minutes in a little salted water. Drain WELL! Squeeze out all the water (place in a colander and press with the back of a large serving spoon). Set aside.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients, reserving a sprig of fresh cilantro to garnish. Stir until well blended, then add the cooked spinach. Mix well--if it seems to need it, according to your taste, you can add a little more Ranch, but you don't want it soupy!
  3. DINNER TIP: This makes a large bowl of dip and I usually have at least a cup or so left over. I pour this over chicken breasts or drumsticks the next day, cover and bake for 2 hours on 350 degrees. Uncover and sprinkle with either a cup of Pepper Jack or Parmesan cheese, then broil for 5 minutes and serve--MARvelous!
