Creamy Velveeta Cheese, crisp bacon, spinach, cream cheese, and RO*TEL are baked into a cheesy, delicious hot dip that pairs well with thick tortilla chips. This dip is very fool-proof and will have your family wanting more!
Servings: 32 servings
- 1 pound VELVEETA (16 ounce package) cut into small cubes
- 4 ounces cream cheese softened
- 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach cooked, drained (remove all moisture)
- 1 can Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies undrained
- 8 slices bacon cooked until crisp, chopped
Prepare spinach according to the package. Be sure any excess moisture is completely removed. You may also cook down fresh spinach quickly in a pan. If you use fresh spinach, use 4 cups of fresh leaves before cooking.
Cook bacon until fully cooked and crisp. Once cooled, chop bacon into small pieces.
Cube VELVEETA into small one inch cubes, and place them in a large bowl.
Drain RO*TEL and add it to the large bowl with the cheese. Add in half the bacon, the softened cream cheese, and all the spinach. Mix until combined and transfer to a baking dish.
Add remaining bacon to the top of the baking dish and bake cheese dip for 20 minutes. Cheese will be slightly browned on the edges and bubbly.
Serve dip warm with thick cut tortilla chips. Enjoy!
