Mexican Spinach con Queso
Recipe By :lorilei from cooking light board
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Hot Dip
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 oz. salsa
2 Tbl. canned chopped jalapenos
1 package frozen chopped spinach -- (10 oz.) thawed and squeezed dry
1 small jar artichokes -- chopped finely
2 cups grated "chihuaha" cheese (or Monteray Jack)
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup Half n Half
1 Tbl. red wine vinegar
4 oz. sliced black olives
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Tortilla chips

Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Stir in olives. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon mixture into baking dish and bake at 400 until bubbly and top is brown, about 35 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips.

NOTE: This recipe is really quite flexible -- I've added a variety of herbs (cumin, cilantro...) at times, varied the cheeses (although chihuaha is my favorite when I can find it), eliminated the salsa in favor of tomatoes & onions, and made the dip with/without olives.
