This Mexican Spinach Dip is cheesy, spicy, and full of veggies. This easy recipe would be perfect to share for your Imbolc coven gathering, bringing in the fertility energy of dairy and the fiery, purifying energy of chillies. It's gonna be awesome.
I obviously cherish the moments that I spend with my coven in ritual, cleansing, creating, and releasing energy as each spell requires. Solitary spell work is beautiful, but working with a coven just heightens the power of the spell a little bit. But if I'm honest, I think the time we spend in communion afterwards is just as powerful for raising my vibration. Spending time just being human with people who make you feel safe and accepted is its own kind of magic.
Of course, my coven really loves food, so we always eat well following our rituals. Each dish corresponds with the intention of the gathering, but it also tastes freaking delicious. We sit around my kitchen table feasting and laughing. This can go on for hours sometimes, but it feels like medicine.
What makes Mexican Spinach Dip so awesome?
This Mexican Spinach Dip would be absolutely perfect for Imbolc. It obviously has ingredients that correspond with the sabbat like cheese, onions, and peppers. But what I love about serving a hot dip like this is the sharing aspect of it. Okay, no double dipping, but the act of putting the skillet right in the center of the table and letting everyone dip into a shared dish creates a sense of solidarity and connection.
You could obviously make this dip for a muggle celebration as well. It's super cheesy but also has a whole jar of salsa and 10 ounces of frozen chopped spinach. We're sneaking in some leafy greens in the midst of all this gooey goodness. You can also adjust the spice level based on the salsa you use. If you want it screaming hot, you could add extra cayenne or stir in a dash of your favorite hot sauce. Imbolc is a fire festival, after all.
Make it magical
Bright green spinach is associated with the heart chakra as well as prosperity, wealth, and strength. Cheese carries the energy of success, happines, and transformation. Milk can be called on for fertility and abundance. And the chillies in the salsa can be used to speed up the results of your spell and remove any obstacles that may stand in your way.
I'd say you could craft this recipe into a fast acting prosperity spell. Transform yourself and everyone who eats it into someone who is wealthy and happy, and ensure you get to that state smoothly and quickly. As long as you tell each ingredient what you want from it, you can craft this in the direction that best suits your intention.

Tips for making Mexican Spinach Dip
This really couldn't be easier. We're just adding all the ingredients to a bowl and mixing them together. You'll want to make sure that you squeeze as much water as possible out of your thawed spinach. Break it up a bit as you add it to the bowl so that it will incoporate better throughout the mixture.I pretty much just add eveyrthing to the bowl of my stand mixer and let the machine do the work.
I love to serve this with tortilla chips, but you could also do raw veggies if you're wanting to emphasize the whole health thing. I think crunchy bell peppers would be especially good here.
You can combine all the ingredients ahead of time and then store the mixture in a covered container in the fridge until you're ready to heat and serve.
You could sautee fresh spinach for this, but it cooks down to practically nothing, so you'll need a lot of fresh spinach to get the same amount as what's in a block of frozen spinach. To me, it's not worth the time.
I hope you share this Mexican Spinach Dip with some truly awesome people. It will undoubtedly raise your vibration.Print
