Super easy Thai dinner, (use this for chicken, pork or seafood) [*We didn't find these spicy at all so I added red pepper flakes to the table so people could add as much "heat" as they wanted]

Awesomeness found on the back of can - Hands down BEST spinach dip I've had. I actually add a bit more of the spinach than the recipe calls for since it IS spinach dip!
Perfect served with tortilla chips (not included in stats), in fact... Toss in some black beans and/or chicken serve with tortillas or rice instead of chips and call it dinner!
