8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon freshly grated Romano cheese
1 tablespoon very finely chopped red bell pepper
1 green onion (scallion) white and green finely chopped
1/2 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup grated medium Cheddar cheese
1 pinch cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix first 4 ingredients with hand or stand mixer on medium until softened and well mixed.

Add next two ingredients and mix on med-low until just incorporated.

Add spinach and mix on low until just incorporated.

Transfer mixture to a small ovenproof dish and sprinkling cayenne on top to taste. Top with cheddar. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes or until bubbling around the edges.

Remove from oven and allow to set for 5 - 7 minutes before serving. Serve with fried or baked pita wedges and tortilla chips (nachos).

cook's notes

At Kelsey's this is served with deep fried pita wedges. I found that oven baked (400 degrees F for 5 minutes) were just as popular and substantially less fatty. For either you MUST use Greek style pitas as they are far softer and more substantial than regular pitas. Greek style pita have little or no pocket in them.

The recipe says it serves four people but trust me when I tell you to double it because when you taste it you'll wish you had made more! It's a great blend of flavors from the different cheeses and the texture is perfectly creamy.

Kelseyís 4 Cheese Spinach Dip is truly delicious, and easy to make. This would be a nice appetizer or a popular party snack. Spread on pizza for an unusual twist instead of other pizza sauce.

Please your guests with this delicious dip that works beautifully with cocktails or a buffet. Kelsey's 4 Cheese dip is rich and full flavored, without being overly fatty. It tastes like you worked for hours, but it goes together quickly and bakes in as little as 15 minutes. Your guests are likely to ask you for the recipe.

This is my favorite dip. The balance of the different cheeses is perfect. It's rich but not so rich that you regret eating it. I use jarred diced pimiento instead of the red bell pepper (I hate to cut up a pepper just for a tablespoon) but that's the only change I make.
