Party dips need a pick me up? This hot spinach dip has got you covered.
Things are getting spicy up in here! Just the way I like it.
Well, okay, so actually I’m kind of a wimp. I can handle the most spice out of anyone in my house though, and it makes me feel very tough. At least, I feel tough until I'm around other people slathering their food in sriracha and talking about eating habanero peppers as a snack. Then I cry like a baby.
But! Today I have an ultra cheesy dip for you that will totally be the star of the next football game. I mean, we're all watching those games for the food, right?
Let’s do this!
We’re going straight for the hot stuff. Jalapeno peppers. You can either dice ‘em right up and leave the seeds in, or you can be a wimp like me and scrape the seeds out with a spoon.
Dice the pepper and half an onion. It’s okay to cry. Let it all out, my friend!
Now, we’re going to cook those peppers and onions until they’re just getting soft. Then we’ll toss in a big blob of cream cheese. It’ll look kind of freaky, but all the best things do!
You’re going to need some freshly shredded pepper jack cheese for this. Trust me on that.
Once that cream cheese has melted down a bit, add in your pepper jack. Lots and lots of pepper jack. Stir that around until it gets a little gooey.
Pour in some milk and keep stirring. Now you see where we’re headed, right? Pure melty cheese heaven.
Toss in your spinach. Do it for your health, okay? And don’t forget the pimentos.
Now, we’re all done! You can either dive in face first or you can pour it all in a slow cooker set to warm to keep it piping hot for a party.
I like to serve this with sliced French bread, but tortilla chips, Hawaiian rolls, and fresh veggies would be pretty rad, too.
