Hot Spinach Red Pepper Dip

A cheesy and creamy hot dip best served in a bread bowl or spread on toasted bread.


1 cup water

1 cup diced red bell pepper

½ cup chopped spinach

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

2 tablespoons milk

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

¼ teaspoon salt

1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon finely diced red bell pepper


Bring the cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat and add the 1 cup of diced red pepper and the chopped spinach. Bring the water back to a boil, turn the heat down to medium and simmer until the pepper is very soft, about 10 minutes. Drain the spinach and red pepper in a colander, pressing out as much liquid as possible.

Combine the cream cheese and milk in the saucepan and cook over medium heat until hot and softened. Stir in the cooked spinach and red peppers, Parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and ground black pepper. Continue to stir until well combined and heated through.

Spoon hot dip into a serving dish and serve with the tablespoon of finely diced red bell pepper sprinkled on top for garnish.

It’s great start.. but just ok. I added onion and garlic... glad I did. Even still I feel bad, but don’t think I’ll make it again... maybe with other seasoning, and would do less cream cheese and more sour cream or mayo. That being said, if you have veggies you need you use, it does go well on Ritz... just add more seasoning to your own preferences.
