Hot Spinach Dip

One of my food weaknesses is "DIP", any dip...dip for veggies, dip for crackers, dip for fries, dip for chips...just dip, I love any and all of it. Kim took a cooking class in school and they learned to make this yummy creation that has quickly become a favorite in our house. We make it for Thanksgiving, for dinner and just for fun. Its best when eaten right out of the oven (after cooling for a little bit so it won't burn your tongue)...but it also tastes great warmed up as leftovers.

Hot Spinach Dip
8 oz. cream cheese, softened (we have used the Neufchatel Cheese and it works just as well)
1/4 c. mayonnaise (NOT salad dressing...use REAL mayonnaise)
1/2 c. frozen spinach, chopped and thawed
1/2 c. frozen broccoli, chopped and thawed
2 T green onion, chopped
1/2 t. basil
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
1 c. Monterey jack cheese, shredded (we have used cheddar or mozzarella as well)

Thaw spinach and broccoli, squeeze all the water out of them. Mix all ingredient together and put in a 8x8 cake pan. Bake 20-30 minutes until warm and bubbly. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips. 
*we like to double ours so that there are leftovers...if you double it, put it in a 9x13 cake pan to bake it. 

Happy Cooking~
