Mexican Spinach Dip

Last week a few friends and I had a little shower for my friend Maggie. Maggie is going to have her 3rd boy in a few short weeks, and we wanted to give her a bit of pampering. I spotted this recipe at Cassie's blog Cassie Craves. It sounded delicious and super easy for a low key get together. I love spinach dip and it was a tasty twist on an old favorite. The only change I made was to add the second cup of cheese to the top of the dip versus stirring both cups into the dip and baking (I like a little extra gooey cheese on top!). My friends loved this dip and we gobbled it up along with guacamole, nachos on the grill, and jello poke cake. Yummy! This weekend is my friend Amanda's wedding day! I have my Maid of Honor Speech down and am so excited to see her walk down the isle! After the wedding we are heading to Door County for the rest of the weekend!
