Instant Pot Creamy Spinach Dip

How to Make Creamy Spinach Dip in Instant Pot
Hello Foodies,
         One more awesomely rich and creamy instant pot spinach dish for spinach lovers. This festive dip is a snap to make, taking only 10 minutes from start to finish. This easy spinach look impressive on a buffet table and taste even better!


The main thing I like this recipe because I can prepare it ahead of time and whenever I need just heat in the oven or the microwave. You cut your cooking time in half by making your dip in the instant pot. There are two ways to make this dip, but the Instant Pot version is the way to go. I love to try new recipes, and this one was a big hit with my family. It's excellent as an appetizer or for a light lunch.

Video Recipe:

       This instant pot version of creamy spinach dip doesn't contain mayo or Worcestershire sauce like most, so it's very cheesy low carb, and very delicious. Prep these hand-held finger food as an easy assortment of appetizers or just a light snack with friends. It's attractive, tasty, and easy-peasy!
        I used cream cheese instead of mayo to add a richer and creamier flavor! Also, I used fresh spinach instead of frozen. If you like more of a cheese dip with some leafy greens use less spinach, if you like more of a green dip with cheese, then use the full 10oz, as I used in this recipe. I made the spinach cheese dip in the instant pot for the first time for Dr.K (my hubby) to take to his office, and everyone loved it! And now, I make it every time I have friends over. I added black pepper for some kick and put extra cheese on top to get a light brown top. In this dip cream cheese melts and thickens the dip, parmesan cheese adds nuttiness, and onions give a mild onion flavor to complement the chopped spinach.
