The Opinionated Foodie: The Love (or Not) of Food and Everything That Goes with It


Super Bowl Recipe #5-Cheesey Chicken and Spinach Dip

“Speak well of this in your blog.”

Words my husband said to me. It was dinner time, and he was poised for the next bite of this dip, corn chip in hand.

He had found this recipe for me, and he asked me to try it for the big game. I made it, and he liked it enough to endorse its praises for you here. He ate all of his and part of mine.

Problem-I didn’t like it so much.

The recipe was easy, but I thought the dip had a twang. It just didn’t taste right to me, and I thought it was way too cheesy.

He loved it.

Try it, and see what you think.

The recipe-

One can of diced tomatoes, drained
One pound of Velveeta, cubed
One 10 oz. package of frozen spinach, thawed and drained (I didn’t do this. I just plopped it in with the rest of the stuff.)
One cube of cream cheese, cubed
2 chicken breasts
5 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled

Cube the chicken breasts and sauté until cooked through. Shred and drop in the crock pot. Add all the rest of the ingredients. Warm on high for an hour, stirring often to incorporate the cheeses. When ready to eat, top with the crumbled bacon.
