Eat Skinny: Goat Cheese Spinach & Artichoke Dip Recipe

Pin It PIN IT!

Whew. What a weekend. Actually, scratch that, what a MONTH. 3 weekends, 3 different states, it’s been a travel HEAVY April. I’m not mad about it, I’ve made some great memories. But I will say it’s very nice to be back home! I’m still in the process of editing all my photos from the weekend so I promise to do a full recap. But, I’ve got a few edited, including this one, muhahah!

Excuse me, I mustache you a question.

I have a weird obsession with trendy mustaches. I’m not sure why. Now, the other photo I have edited actually ties in PERFECTLY with my latest recipe.

At the farm where the wedding was, they had goats. Just a flock of goats that came out to greet the guests. They smelled STRONGLY of goat cheese, which was weird, albeit a tad bit delicious. Because as you know, goat cheese is probably my favorite thing in the entire world. Well, instead of peeling back the wrapper and eating my 4 ounce container of goat cheese like a candy bar  last week[I swear, I’ve never done that, although I’ve wanted to] I decided to add it to ANOTHER thing I often dream about, spinach dip!

After one bite of this warm, ooey, gooey dip, I thought to myself “why the heck hadn’t I done this before?” Goat cheese is absolutely perfect in this dip because it’s creamy and gives it such a great tang. I’m honestly HOOKED.

I originally made this dip for a cute appetizer for Fab Foods but after one bite, immediately knew I had to share with y’all. I mean, when you find something this good, it’s a crime not to share with the ones you love, right?

Even though I may have eaten this whole bowl myself. I’ll never tell though, NEVER!

    I have been loving goat cheese lately, but never thought to use it in a spinach and artichoke dip. So smart!
