Favorite Ingredient Friday - Super Bowl Edition


Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Dip
Prep Time:10 min
Total Time:10 min
Makes:4 cups or 32 servings, 2 Tbsp. each

Ingredients:
1. 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained
2. 1 lb. (16 oz.) VELVEETA Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3. 4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cut up
4. 1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
5. 8 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled

Directions:
1. Combine ingredients in microwaveable bowl.
2. Microwave on high 5 min. or until Velveeta is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 3 min.

Variation
Prepare as directed, using VELVEETA Made With 2% Milk Reduced Fat Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product and PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese.

How to Cut Up VELVEETA
Cut VELVEETA (the whole loaf) into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Then, cut each slice crosswise in both directions to make cubes.

Use Your Slow Cooker
When serving this dip at a party, pour the prepared dip into a small slow cooker set on Low. This will keep the dip warm and at the ideal consistency for several hours. For best results, stir the dip occasionally to prevent hot spots.

Love the sounds of this dip! And I like your suggestion to keep it warm throughout the game in a slow cooker. I dougt it would last long though. :)

Thanks, Michelle, for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday Super Bowl Sunday recipe exchange. I do appreciate it.
