Quick Spinach Dip

I whipped up this warm, cheesy spinach dip yesterday afternoon in about 20 minutes using ingredients I had on-hand — including a bag of fresh spinach I had good intentions of using for salads (sigh) — and it was the perfect snack for a chilly fall afternoon of watching football. You can substitute frozen spinach for fresh, and use your favorite shredded cheeses. Jarred artichoke hearts also would be a great addition.
