Tips

Make it Vegan: Swap out the dairy for vegan alternatives like vegan cream cheese, vegan yogurt, and your favorite vegan cheese.

Spice it Up: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little heat.

Fresh vs. Frozen Spinach: You can use fresh spinach if you prefer. Wilt it in the pan with the mushrooms. About 10 ounces of fresh spinach is equivalent to frozen.

Adjust the consistency: If the dip is too thick, add a splash more milk.
