The Perfect Spinach Dip

This a great hot spinach dip recipe, loaded with flavor from both fresh spinach and ranch seasoning mix! We are big veggie lovers in our household! While I do love a traditional cold spinach dip recipe, there’s really nothing quite like a hot bubbly cheese dip out of the oven!

Adding diced peppers to this dip makes for great flavor! While I used fresh spinach in this recipe, of course you can substitute frozen chopped spinach as well! Be sure to squeeze it to drain well. This Ranch Spinach dip recipe is packed with spinach and peppers and fully loaded with flavor!

  • Use a hand mixer to combine the cream cheese, this makes it softer and easier to scoop.
  • Squeeze all of the water you can out of the spinach.
  • Change the cheeses to your favorites, a bit of gruyere or cheddar are great in this recipe.
  • Low fat or light products can be used in this recipe.
  • Make up to 48 hours in advance and refrigerate. May need a bit of extra cook time if it’s chilled.

  1. Yum! This was a hit at Easter dinner.  Made it as noted, used herb and garlic cream cheese and fresh spinach. Will definitely make again! 

  2. I have a container of ranch dip that I’d like to transform. Could I make this dip using what I have, obviously leaving out dairy items?

    1. I haven’t tried it that way but it sounds delicious! You might need to add some of the other dairy just so the ranch flavor isn’t too incredibly strong. I’d love to hear how it works out for you!
