Spicy Spinach Dip (in the slow cooker!!)

“This is the best spinach dip I’ve ever had.” said a Spinach Dip Expert!
Yes, I know a spinach dip expert…in fact, I know several of them.  My girlfriends and I are experts on two things…Pigs in a Blanket and Spinach Dip.  We serve both at almost every gathering (and we gather a lot!).  I whipped up this simple slow cooker spinach dip in no time and my girlfriends raved.  Several of them said it was their all-time favorite…quite the compliment because I know they have tasted their fair share.  Loved this dip!  Loved it!  Easy, easy, easy and yummy, yummy, yummy.  I found this recipe in my Quick and Easy Christmas cookbook by Gooseberry Patch…and I couldn’t agree more…this would taste perfect with any Christmas celebration.
Shopping List
2 (10 oz) packages of frozen spinach, thawed and all excess water squeezed out
1 (16 oz) Pepper Jack Velveeta (or Jalepeno Velveeta)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 (3 oz) package cream cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder
In your slow cooker, combine all ingredients, cover and cook on low 3-4 hours or on high about one hour.  Stir a few times during the cooking process.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
Do you see how simple this is?  I love a great dip that I can just ignore all day.  Fabulous!

    quick question….did you serve this in the slow cooker or would it work to put it in a different serving dish?

  • Mix and Match Mama November 16, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    I served this right out of the slow cooker!!!

    The pepper jack Velveeta is on the Mexican aisle of my grocery store but I've also seen it at Walmart and Target. You could use regular velveeta with some chopped up jalepenos and a can of chopped green chiles. Good luck!

    I don't think I've ever seen a 3-oz package of cream cheese–I've only seen 8 or 16 oz. Just want to make sure that isn't a typo before I go to the store tonight and try to buy 3 oz!

  • Mix and Match Mama February 14, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    3 ounce cream cheese is sold right next to the 8 ounce boxes. Philadelphia makes one that is wrapped in foil. You should see it right there!

    I adore spinach dip, but I have never made it! I can't wait to try this..

  • Kelli January 14, 2014 at 6:16 pm

    My husband hates mushrooms. What would you recommend I use in place of the cream of mushroom soup? Cream of onion? Cream of chicken?

  • Mix and Match Mama January 14, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    Cream of chicken, cream of onion, cream of celery…all would work :)!

  • griffin8003 January 29, 2014 at 12:36 am

    Yes this is it thank you so much!!!

  • Diana January 29, 2014 at 4:58 pm

    Can you add artichokes to this?

  • Anonymous February 2, 2014 at 3:27 am

    Can you use regular pepper jack cheese or does it have to be velveeta? Thanks!!

  • Mix and Match Mama February 2, 2014 at 11:11 am

    It needs to be Velveeta so that it melts easily and creamy. Enjoy!

  • Davina Vasquez February 2, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    What brand of frozen spinach do you us?

  • Mix and Match Mama February 2, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    Birds Eye frozen spinach!

  • Ben and Jenn July 28, 2014 at 5:21 pm

    Is this super spicy? or would it be the equivalent of queso spicy when combining velveeta and rotel. Would love an amped up flavor but my family can't handle too much heat!


  • Mix and Match Mama July 28, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    It's not super spicy. It's very similar to the basic Velveeta-Rotel queso :).

    I am guessing you made this is a regular sized crock pot, right? I am going to try and use a smaller crock pot and wanted to gauge how much this recipe makes. Thanks!!

    Hi! Do you use a regular sized crock pot for this? Thanks!
