Another one passed to me by a friend. She told me she got it on the internet, but doesn't remember where.

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 3/4 cups chopped onion
6 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 cup chicken stock or canned low-salt chicken broth
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 10-ounce package ready-to-use fresh spinach leaves
1 cup (packed) grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Baguette slices, toasted

Melt butter with oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; saut until onion is tender, about 6 minutes. Add flour; stir 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in stock and cream; bring to boil, whisking constantly. Cook until mixture thickens, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in spinach, cheese, sour cream and cayenne (spinach will wilt). Season with salt and pepper. Transfer dip to serving bowl. Serve warm with toasted baguette slices.

Makes about 3 cups.
