Spinach Queso Dip

Monday, October 22, 2012

This past weekend I was at the DailyBuzz Food Festival in San Francisco.  It was such a great time but I will tell you all about that later. 

For now, let's talk about this dip.  I made it a few weekends ago and we noshed on it while watching the football game.  It is a mix between spinach and queso dip.  Slightly spicy, creamy and full of flavor.  
Start by adding a block of cream cheese (I used 1/3 the fat) in a large pot on medium heat.
Add a jar of salsa.
Cube up a block of Valveeta.  Confession: this is the first time I have ever bought this stuff.  Sometimes you just need to do things…this is one of those times.
Add the cheese to the pot.
Defrost and strain the spinach.
Add the spinach into the pot.
Along with a packet of ranch dressing.  Mix and stir until fully combined and all of the cheese has melted.
That is IT! It doesn't get much easier than that.
So creamy and delicious.  You can put this in a crockpot to keep it warm just be sure to keep it on low or warm.

Spinach Queso Dip

8 oz cream cheese (1/3 the fat is okay)
1 15.5 oz jar salsa
1 box (16 oz) Valveeta cheese
1 10 oz box of chopped spinach, defrosted and drained
1 packet of ranch dressing mix

In a large pot, combine the cream cheese and salsa.  Turn the heat to medium.  Cube the Valveeta into small cubes and add into the pot.  Add the spinach and ranch dressing.  Stir until all of the cheese has melted.

Serve with your favorite chips.
