Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Spoon hot dip into a serving dish and serve with the tablespoon of finely diced red bell pepper sprinkled on top for garnish.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Very good dip!! I made a few modifications though. I cooked the spinach and red pepper along with about 1 teaspoon of minced garlic in 3 tablespoons of butter instead of boiling them in water. I cooked them until the spinach and red pepper were tender, then I added the cream cheese, milk, about 1/2 cup sour cream and about 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. I followed the rest of the recipe as it is written, then I transferred the mix to a small crockpot turned on low to keep it warm. Then, I thinly sliced a loaf of Italian bread, lightly buttered each side, and sprinkled mozzerella and parmesan cheeses on it. I baked the bread on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees and served the bread with this dip. It made a great appetizer for our party, everyone loved it!!!

I made this dip for a cooking party at the house and was very pleased! First - we used frozen spinach and it turned out just fine. Second - We added one clove of fresh garlic (finely chopped). Third - We used roasted red peppers instead of fresh. It added much more flavor to the dip. Fourth - we added some Italian blend cheese into the mixture to make it extra cheesy and to thicken it a bit; we then put a generous sprinkle on top to melt in the oven. For the bread bowl we picked up a round on the discount bakery rack and stuck it in the freezer ahead of time. It didn't matter that it was hard since we were just hollowing it out for the dip. The dip was a big hit!!!

OMG! This dip is fantastic! I sliced one red pepper and 3 gloves of garlic very thin and roasted in the oven with maybe a tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Mixed in the spinach/pepper with the diced roasted peppers and garlic. Used Parmesan/Romano blend cheese and doubled the cheese. SO GOOD!
