Chef Jen’s Colorado Spinach Dip

  • 1 ounce olive oil
  • 12 ounces fresh, cleaned spinach (no stems)
  • 1/4 cup shallot, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 6 ounces Haystack Mountain Boulder Chèvre
  • 4 ounces smoked ricotta
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat and briefly sauté the shallots. As soon as the shallots are translucent, add the spinach and just wilt, about 1 minute. Place the cooked spinach in a colander to drain and cool.

2. When the spinach cools to room temperature, rough chop it a bit and combine with shallots, dill, chèvre, ricotta, sour cream, salt and pepper in a food processor. Process until smooth. Serve with homemade potato chips. Serves 4 to 6 (yields 2.5 cups).

Homemade Potato Chips

Slice Russet potatoes on a Japanese mandolin to about the thickness of a playing card, dropping in hot water after slicing. Preheat canola oil to 300° F in a large, high-edged pot with plenty of space between the top of the oil and the rim of the pot. Drop potato slices, a few chips at a time, into the hot oil, sinking them with a slotted spoon or strainer so they cook evenly on both sides. When golden, transfer from the oil to a paper towel-lined tray and season immediately.
