I know what you’re thinking! You love dips! Well that’s OK, so do I!
Even if you’re not a fan of spinach you will love this baja dip. And if you want more heat, well then just throw in some more Frank’s hot sauce. This dip is hot, it’s gooey, cheesy and most importantly, it’s yummy! Isn’t that what make an incredibly good dip? I think it is!
You can make this in any baking dish you choose, but I have had these small ramekins for a while now and I was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use them. And I found it! These ramekins are perfect for this dip. They are the perfect individual size, because trust me, I can eat all that dip.
I think this dip is perfect on a hot summer day, sitting on the patio with your friends and enjoying this delicious baja spinach dip with a great margarita in your hand. What could be better?
