I was at the store the other day buying ingredients to make poutine. I needed Velveeta cheese for that recipe and just happened to glance at the back of one of the Velveeta cheese boxes and there it was….a recipe for Cheesy Spinach & Bacon Dip. There was no going back. I knew I would be making the dip in addition to the poutine.
Oh, how I wish I would have never flipped that Velveeta box over. I’m here to tell you that the cheesy spinach & bacon dip is amazing! It’s also a recipe that is easy and quick to make. The most time-consuming part of the entire process is cooking the bacon. I ended up cooking the bacon in the microwave because I was in a hurry and didn’t want to mess around with pan frying or baking it. Other than that this recipe requires opening a couple of packages and dumping the ingredients in an oven safe dish.
8 ounces Velveeta Cheese
4 ounces cream cheese
6 slices bacon, cooked crisply & crumbled
5 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
1/2 can (10 ounces) of Ro*Tel Diced Tomatoes, mild
Place all ingredients into an oven safe dish. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until all cheese is melted. Remove from oven, mix well. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
