The Ultimate Super Bowl Spinach Dip
Here’s a dip that pushes all of the right buttons—warm, creamy, cheesy, boldly flavored. Consider making a double batch because any leftovers (which are unlikely to happen) will reheat well.

  • One10-ounce package thawed chopped frozen spinach
  • One8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1cup mayonnaise
  • 1cup shredded mozzarella cheese(4 ounces)
  • 1/2cup grated romano cheese, divided(2 ounces)
  • 2 scallions(white and green parts), finely chopped
  • 2cloves garlic, minced
  • hot red pepper sauce
  • tortilla chips or crackers, for serving
  1. A handful at a time, squeeze the spinach to remove excess liquid; set aside.
  2. Mash the cream cheese, mayonnaise, mozzarella and 1/4 cup of the Romano cheese together in a medium bowl with a rubber spatula. Stir in the spinach, scallions, and garlic. Season to taste with the hot sauce. Spread in an 8-inch square baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining Romano cheese. (The dip can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 day.)
  3. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  4. Bake the dip, uncovered, until it is bubbling and the top is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve hot with the chips.
