ISO Spinach dip

Ok, I did do a search for spinach dip, and ended up with everything about anything except... spinach dip. So, looking for not a cheese based dip but a mayo/cream cheese/sour cream based dip. I looked on the internet but I want something TNT. I am in love with Wild Wing Cafe's (SE chain) spinach dip and would die for a copy recipe. (Yes, did a Wild Wings search too.)

I use the recipe on the box of Knorr vegetable soup. It's really good. I don't have one in my pantry to copy here. I believe the box says Hellman's mayo. Have made it with Hellmen's and with Kraft. We couldn't tell the difference but do use mayo. Miracle whip is not good for this recipe.

Here is the Knorr box recipe - I agree it it very good!!

KNORR'S BACK OF PKG. SPINACH DIP

10 ozs pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
16 ozs sour cream
1 c mayonnaise
1 pkg Knorr Vege Soup, Dip & Recipe Mix
8 ozs water chestnuts, drained & chopped (optional)
3 ea green onions, chopped

In med. bowl, stir spinach, sour cream, mayo, soup mix, water chestnuts & gr. onions till well mixed.
Cover; chill 2 hours to blend flavors.
Stir well. If desired, spoon into round bread bowl. Serve w/cut up veggies or chips.
SPINACH 7 CHEESE DIP: Add 8 oz. shredded Swiss cheese.

Note: I also add a couple shakes of tabasco.
--------

adding artichoke hearts to spinach dip works also.

I think they make a packet now. I have one home, I'll have to check out who makes it.

Well that's easy enough. I'll pick that up tomorrow on the way home from work. I love using the new flour tortilla chips that Tostitos has.

I don't have "just" a spinach dip in my database, but if you're willing to put a little extra work into it, I have an awesome award-winning spinach artichoke dip (which kicks the crap out of spinach dip every day and thrice on Sundays)

(Credit to Youri Wang for this recipe, it is not one I devised on my own)

1 14oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
-Mix together artichoke hearts, spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese, Romano cheese, and garlic. Cover dish.
-Bake until heated through and bubbly, about 25 minutes.

Hmmm, I may have to try that one if 2 people agree on it. Thing is, I'm really not crazy about artichokes.

Aslo, do you eat it warm? Or do you let it cool down? The only warm spinach dip I've had is the cheesy one from TGI Fridays and I dodn't like it at all.
