JC’s note: This recipe is as simple as it gets — however, there are a few steps that must be followed to ensure quality. First and foremost, using frozen spinach makes this recipe come together in a jiffy! And while I love the quality of frozen spinach, please note that there will be an immense amount of juice that you will need to drain. My favorite method of doing so is by squeezing the spinach: simply place the spinach in a paper towel and squeeze with full-strength. This will ensure that the spinach is dry and doesn’t compromise the dip quality and/or make it watery!

Y’all come back now, ya hear?

My best,
