Swamp Dip is a spinach dip recipe that was inspired by the University of Florida Gators football team. The green spinach pokes out among the white sour cream mixture, giving a "swampy" look. A dash of ground red pepper gives this dip a bit of heat, in true Florida fashion. This is a perfect appetizer to bring tailgating at a Gators game or any other tailgating event. Make it the night before and then refrigerate it until you're ready to dig in.
