It's the same as the restaurants except there is more!!!!

8oz pkg cream cheese
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated(scant, not packed)
1 tbsp romano cheese, freshly grated(scant, not packed)
1 rounded tbsp sweet red pepper, finely chopped
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 scallion, finely chopped
1/2 pkg frozen spinach, chopped, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup medium cheddar cheese, grated
pinch of cayenne pepper

preheat oven to 400F
mix the first 4 ingredients with a hand or stand mixer on medium until softened and well mixed. Add next 3 ingredients and mix on med-low until just incorporated. Add spinach and mix on low until just incorporated. Transfer mixture to a small ovenproof dish and sprinkle cayenne on top to taste. Top with cheddar cheese. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until bubbling around edges. Remove from oven and set for 5-7 minutes before serving.

serve with fried or baked pita wedges and tortilla chips.

to bake pita wedges, bake at 400F for 5 minutes. greek style pitas are the best to use as they are softer and more substantial than regular pitas. The greek style pita has little or no pocket.

enjoy
