Equipment

  • 3.5 quart casserole dish

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!
