Oh I Just Love Football Food Time of Year - Cheesy Spinach & Bacon Dip

Anyone who knows me knows I love football - especially Rams Football!   Football Sundays  always center around food at our house.  We usually wind up with a few drop in guests.  Maybe for the food or maybe to make fun of my rather loud cheering.  Who knows?

I found a new recipe on the Kraft website and plan to try it this Sunday. . . I've modified it just a little bit.

1 package (10 oz) fresh spinach (washed and chopped)
1 lb Velveeta Cheese Product (cut into 1/2" cubes)
4 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese (cubed)
1 can (10 oz) RoTel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies (undrained)
8 slices Oscar Meyer Bacon (cooked, drained, and crumbled)

Fry 8 bacon strips until crispy.  Remove from pan and drain.  Crumble when cool.

Combine Velveeta, Philadelphia Cream Cheese in saucepan and cook over medium heat  until mixture is completely melted.  Stir in tomatoes and bacon and cook until mixture bubbles.  Add spinach and remove from heat.  Pour into a bowl and serve with tortilla chips and/or fresh veggies.

This is best served warm.  If you plan to leave it sit out for a while, you may want to keep in in a slow cooker on the warm setting.

  1. We had this dip today. I have to admit, it was a little too cheesy for my taste. The rest of the family seemed to really like it. I may try to tweak this one a little bit.
