  • 1 tablespoon oil, or to taste

  • ½ onion, chopped

  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped

  • 1 (10 ounce) package fresh spinach, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup half-and-half, or more to taste

  • 8 ounces shredded pepperjack cheese

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut up and softened


  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion in hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir tomatoes and jalapeno pepper into the onion; add spinach and garlic and cook until the spinach wilts, 3 to 5 minutes.

  2. Pour half-and-half into the saucepan; add pepperjack cheese and cream cheese. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the cheese is completely melted, 5 to 7 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use whatever milk you have on hand in place of the half-and-half, as needed.
