Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mexican
  • 1 (10-oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 (16-oz) package Velveeta cheese
  • 1 (8-oz) package reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1 (16-oz) jar salsa
  • Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  1. Cut Velveeta and cream cheese into cubed. Place spinach, Velveeta cheese, cream cheese and salsa in a large microwaveable bowl.
  2. Microwave on high 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring for 1-minute intervals until cheese is melted and queso dip is hot. Fold in chopped cilantro.
  3. Pour into a serving bowl; garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve hot!
Slow cooker option (NOT a 5-minute option):

Place all ingredients in slow cooker and heat on low until cheese is melted (about an hour). Check occasionally as some slow cookers cook hotter and faster than others. Fold in chopped cilantro. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

* This is a great alternative for parties as it keeps the dip warm!
