    3. Stir in flour, and cook, while stirring, for 2 minutes. Turn heat to low and stir in milk, Worcestershire sauce and all spices. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a simmer, while stirring, until thickened (but not too thick).
    4. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream until smooth. Stir in spinach and roasted peppers followed by brie, 1/2 cup mozzarella, 1/2 cup Jack cheese, and 1/4 cup Parmesan.
    5. Smooth dip into an even layer (or transfer to prepared pie pan and smooth). Top with remaining cheeses and bake 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and brie is melted. Broil until cheese is golden.
    6. Let sit at least 5 minutes then serve hot with bread, crackers, etc.
    Recipe Notes

    *This dip has a very distinctive Brie flavor, which I love.  If you don’t love Brie, then substitute with 8 oz. cream cheese or substitute part of the brie with cream cheese.

    MAKE AHEAD:  Prepare dip to the point of baking and then refrigerate.  Simply bake when ready to serve, baking 20 minutes or until warmed through ad bubbly.  You can also place baked dip a crockpot to keep warm and serve from there if desired.
