serves/makes: 4recipe id: 5637
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).
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.

I just made this last night for my family and wow, it feels like we ordered it from Kelsey's.
I recommend this recipe for anyone that wants to make a cheese spinach dip.

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.

My husband and kids love this when we go to Kelsey's so it's a real treat to make it a home. Is there anyway I can pin this to pinterest??

ABSOLUTELY amazing!! The best dip I've ever made. I make it year after year and have never had such rave reviews. I don't like regular cold spinach dip but this stuff is incredible. I always serve with baked Greek style pitas and sometimes crackers, tortilla chips, etc..

This is absolutely one of my most favorite things! I always crave it! I found the most delicious way to make it.. I always do a double batch, but I don't use a whole package of spinach I just take a little chunk out of it because I find it makes it too overpowering, and then I make sure that I HEAP up the Red peppers on the tbsp's. and I add a glob of sour cream to it because it keeps it from stiffening up too much as it starts to cool. MMMM Now I'm hungry for some! :P

My boyfriend and I gobbled this up! I plan on making it again just not adding as much chopped spinach and using marble cheese instead of just cheddar.
