We found this recipe very bland.  I've made it three times now and have finally settled on adding 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Add the spices with on the onions as they cook. We preferred it mashed very thoroughly (or pulsed in a food processor) to make a chunky dip.. Friends at the Superbowl Party thought it very tasty,  It's nice to have a Spinach Dip that is low in fat.
