Spinach Queso - Football Friday
Are you ready for some football?!?! We sure are!! We are starting the season off with this amazing Spinach Queso. We thought this dip tasted just like the Spinach Queso at J. Alexander's - one of my all-time favorite dips! It was incredibly delicious!! We could have eaten this for dinner - it was that good. The best part of this recipe is that it only has 3 ingredients - Velveeta, Rotel and frozen spinach artichoke dip. I made this dip in the microwave, but you could also throw everything into the crockpot. I recommend using TGI Friday's Spinach Artichoke Dip because it has an alfredo sauce base with a hint of roasted garlic. The creamy spinach and artichoke dip really mellows out the Rotel in this dip. This is the perfect dip to kick-off the college football season!
1 lb Velveeta cheese, cubed
1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes
1 (8 oz) package TGI Friday's Frozen Spinach Artichoke Dip
Peel back a corner of the frozen dip and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes. Set aside.
In a large microwave-safe dish, combine undrained Rotel and Velvetta cheese. Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or just until cheese melts. Remove from microwave; stir in partially cooked spinach and artichoke dip. Microwave for an additional 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Stir until mixture is well blended.
Serve wtih tortilla chips.
