Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and add the onion, garlic, chili powder and chipotle powder and cook until onion is softened. Stir in the baby spinach and cover for 2-3 minutes until the spinach is completely wilted. Transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool thoroughly.

  • Remove the bites from the muffin tins and serve with a dip made by mixing mayonnaise, green onion and hot sauce. Refrigerate leftovers.
