Spinach Cups – Easy and Delicious

spinachcups

Spinach cups are simple to make and incredibly delicious. The involved a few simple spices, of course spinach, some cream cheese, cream cheese, grated Monterey Jack, and that’s about it. The outcome is out of this world. These cups make an excellent Hors D’oeuvres or appetizer. Believe me, everybody will rave about them and come back for. more.

You can, if you wish, alter the recipe in a few ways. To begin with, use the cheese of your choice whether it be cheddar or otherwise. I like Monterey Jack but it is entirely up to you. You can make the puff pastry from scratch, but I find that it is easier to buy it in the store and just as good. Fresh spinach fan be used but the frozen does well too. Some hot chilli flakes could be added for heat if you are so inclined as well as any other spices such as ginger.

In retrospect, the only thing that I might change in the recipe is adding some onion and perhaps a stronger cheese; although they are just about perfect as is.
