Easy Recipe using Trader Joe's Ingredients

Here is an awesome recipe for Spinach Dip - Trader Joe's style.  Please note - this is not a healthy dish at all, but it is really good and everyone who has tried it has loved it.  It is really simple and very tasty!

Sorry I don't have pictures to share, but I didn't get the camera before we finished it :).

Spinach Dip (hot)
  • 1 cup sour cream ($1.69 for whole container = $.75 for dish)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise ($3.99 for container = approximately $.75 for dish)
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese ($4.69 for bag = $1.50 for dish)
  • 1 1lb. bag of frozen chopped spinach ($1.29)
  • Tortilla chips (Organic Blue Tortilla Chips for $2.99) or french baguette ($1.99)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Defrost spinach and squeeze "dry" (I did that with the spinach still in the bag)
Mix everything together (except dipping tool)
Grease a 8x8 or 9x9 pan
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling and slightly brown on edges

Again, it's so simple and very enjoyable.  And, again, sorry for the lack of pictures!

Total approximate price for the dish is $4.29 + the dipping tool (I love it with chips!)

What's the dipping tool? This sounds soooo good! I can get all these ingredients here (not TJ's of course!), but I'm going to make it in the near future.

"Dipping tool" is just the term I thought of for whatever you use to dip out the dip :) chips or bread or whatever else.
