This has been a must at all our family gatherings. Our recipe is just a tish different. We use 2 lbs. of the pepper jack cheese! We found out the hard way that the cheese should be from a deli or meat market. The grocery store variety just doesn't melt down to the needed consistency. So don't skimp on the quality of cheese. We keep it warm in a small crockpot and constantly get requests for the recipe. Buy the right cheese and you won't be disappointed!!

Easy to make and a unique twist from the regular cheese queso dip. I would however omit the milk. I only used 1/2 of a cup of milk and the dip was still way too watery with a water film that kept coming back up to the top.

Very delicious! I wanted to stay as close to the recipe as possible, but I couldn't locate the pimento peppers at the store. Made it without pimentos but otherwise to the T and it is very good! After I tried it, I added a can of diced tomatoes(drained) and 1/2 6 oz can green chiles(drained) for a little more kick. This made it a little more colorful and tasteful. I wouldn't recommend as much milk as called for, maybe 1/2. No matter how well I drained everything, it was a little watery when all was said and done. Still a good dip. Lesson learned for next time!

This recipe is actually served at a local restaurant....it's one of the items on their menu that makes them VERY popular! "The Blue Moose" So excited to have found this! As another reviewer mentioned, USE DELI CHEESE (I use a 1 1/2 pound block of Jalapeño Jack cheese...if available, instead of using 2 types of cheese...and then shredded). It melts and tastes MUCH better than regular store bought block cheese. AND, adding the 1 cup of milk does NOT make this dip "watery", it makes it runny. But that's the way it's supposed to be. If you want a less runny dip, add only 1/2 cup of milk. This is THE BEST SPINACH QUESO DIP!! :) So happy I found this recipe, because I simply don't care for artichoke dip! Lol! FIVE STARS!!!!!
