I'm strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach.

Ready to be placed into the oven!
 Easy Spinach Dip

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cups baby spinach, coarsely chopped
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
3 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 cup light sour cream
2 Tablespoons fresh shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
2.  Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat.  Cook and stir spinach until wilted, about 3 minutes then add garlic, cook and stir for another minute then turn heat off.
3.  Place cream cheese, sour cream, cooked spinach and garlic, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, chipotle chile pepper, salt and pepper into a medium bowl.  Mix until well combined and spread into a small casserole dish (I put my dip into mini-breadbowls.). Top evenly with shredded cheese and bake for 20 minutes until just turning brown on edges.  Remove and let cool for 3-5 minutes before removing from oven.

Oh and the title is from Popeye ;)
