GAMEDAY: Hot Spinach Salsa Queso Dip
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 lb Velveeta cheese (2% fat--this is the reduced fat version)
8 ounces cream cheese (light)
1 jar salsa (I used 3/4 full jar of a 16 ounce jar)
A handful of chopped cilantro (optional-but good)
Now there's 3 ways to make this:
1) Cut the Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes and place all ingredients in a microwaveable-safe dish. Heat until cheese has melted and stir to combine all ingredients.
2) If you prefer, you can place all the ingredients in an oven safe dish and bake until the dip is heated through--continuing to stir to mix all ingredients.
3) OR, you can place all ingredients in a crockpot and heat until cheese has melted (continuing to stir the mixture to combine ingredients). This particular method is great if you can leave it on the low setting--then your dip will stay warm for a while. But I bet it won't last!
Serve warm with tortilla chips. Heaven! Should make a small crowd very happy before dinner is served.
