Stir spinach and water chestnuts into sour cream mixture. Cover and refrigerate two hours or more. Serve dip in bowl with platter of veggies, bread, or crackers.


Place the dip in individual dessert cups and serve it to your guests with their own plates of dippers.

Practical Tip:

The longer you refrigerate the dip, the better the flavors blend.
