Easy spinach rotel dip

I think I’ve confessed to you already that I am a dipper. I love to dip just about anything!

Since my family gets together often, in general, but specifically around the Holidays, we’re constantly trying to discover new recipes to serve. I’m always volunteering to find new dip recipes. 🙂

Today I am sharing with you a very simple and yummy Velveeta Spinach Dip. I love this easy dip and the added flavor that the can of Rotel adds!

Best part is, its crazy simple to make. Just put all the ingredients together and melt in the microwave, easy as that!! It’s great for tortilla chips, crackers or even toasted bread slices. It’s a simple but delicious appetizer.

Tips + Serving Ideas

Fresh Spinach: Fresh spinach can be substituted for frozen spinach. Keep in mind that for every 10 oz of frozen spinach you will need 16 oz of fresh spinach. You will also need to cook it before using it in the dip.

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and then add the spinach leaves. Add a pinch of salt and saute for 4-5 minutes, until the leaves are soft and wilted. 
  • Pour the spinach into a mesh sieve and press with a spoon. Finish removing the rest of the liquid by pressing and wringing with paper towels. 

Favorite Dippers:

How to avoid watery dip: It is very important to dry the spinach leaves before using them. I divide the spinach up and then wrap each with paper towels. As you press and wring the spinach the paper towels will absorb the excess liquid. Repeat with more paper towels as needed. Another way that you can remove excess water is to press the leaves in a potato ricer. 

If your dip develops a film of water on top it may be because you didn’t squeeze all of the water out of your spinach. Simply, dab the excess water off the top of the dip.

Making Ahead + Storing

Make ahead: Assemble all the ingredients together, cover and place it in the fridge until you’re ready to heat it up. You can also heat it, allow it to cool, cover and then refrigerate. Simply reheat before serving.

Cook the bacon ahead of time. We love this Bacon in the Oven recipe. Allow the bacon to cool and keep it stored in a separate airtight container  in the fridge until you’re ready to add it to the dip. 

STORE covered in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Mix and reheat before serving.

FREEZE this for up to 2 months in an airtight container and let it thaw in the fridge overnight before serving.
