Updated September 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups thinly sliced sweet onions
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded, finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup chili garlic sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 can (14 oz) Progresso™ artichoke hearts, drained, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Crackers, crostini or vegetables, as desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Spray 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Cook spinach as directed on box. Drain well; squeeze with paper towel to get out as much liquid as possible; set aside.
  • 2
    Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray. Place bacon in skillet; cook over medium heat until crispy. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined plate; set aside. Add onions and serrano chile to bacon drippings in pan; cook 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are caramelized.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix cream cheese, chili garlic sauce and sour cream; stir in spinach and artichokes.
  • 4
    Stir onion mixture into spinach mixture. Pour into pie plate. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until hot in center. Top with reserved bacon; serve with crackers, crostini or vegetables.

  • Want it hotter? Leave the seeds in the diced serrano, or use up to 1/3 cup chili garlic sauce.
  • Chili garlic sauce is a flavorful hot sauce with more complexity than Sriracha. It's available in the Asian section of most grocery stores.
  • For best results and an evenly creamy texture, be sure to use fully softened cream cheese.
