Oh we’ve all had the standard queso dip. I’ve made it many times. I’ve even changed it up a bit now and then. But not like this. Spinach queso dip is just different enough to make you go ‘wow’ while still enjoying what you know and love as the classic: creamy, melted cheese with tomatoes mixed in! This is what that classic cheese dip grows up to be (or wishes it could be!).

Spinach queso dip is also great on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yep. Trust me. Just substitute a healthy spoonful or three of the dip for whatever cheese you normally put on your grilled cheese and toast ‘er up. I made mine on a griddle, making a panini. Just don’t try to squish down on it much, once the dip gets hot and start to melt it’s gonna get to running out the side! It’s going to be ooey-gooey delightful!

This recipe is best made in a small slow cooker. A little 1 1/2 quart-sized one works perfectly. I think you could also use a fondue pot.

For a bit of extra kick, use diced tomatoes with roasted jalapeno instead. You can also use a spicier Velveeta, such as the Mexican blend.
