Barb's Spinach Queso Dip
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
5 ingredients
8 servings
Barb always serves this easy dip whenever we come over to visit. It is great and disappears quickly. She uses Mexican flavor Velveeta and regular canned chopped tomatoes, but I can't find Mexican Velveeta where I live currently. Here is my adaptation of her recipe, using tomatoes with chilies. This is not very spicy, but it does have a little kick from the chilies. If you like it even hotter, stir in some additional chilies. Cook time will vary greatly for different microwaves, so be careful to check & stir often the first time you make this to get the timing right. You can also use salsa in place of the tomatoes.
