This appetizer is all that its name implies…but if you like spinach you will adore this dip!
2-8 oz boxes of cream cheese
1 1/2 C fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
1 2/3 C Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1/4 C Cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 C sour cream
7 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 C milk
5 boxes of frozen spinach, thawed, patted dry
26 oz artichoke hearts, cut into fairly small pieces
1/3 C water chestnuts, shredded or finely chopped
1 Tbsp lime juice
salt, to taste
cayenne pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first six ingredients in oven or microwave safe dish and heat to soften until you can mix them easily. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Spoon into a fairly deep 9 by 13 baking pan. Bake approximately one hour, covered. Cook an additional 10 minutes uncovered to make the top golden brown.
