Spinach Con Queso

 made it  |  0 reviews   |   photos

"Styled after a similar appetizer at The Blue Moose in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, this is a very addicting creamy appetizer that goes well with tortilla chips. It has a little kick, but not enough to make your eyes water. Of course, for the heat lovers, you can kick it up a notch if desired. This has become an instant family-favorite and one of my most requested appetizers."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil and butter together in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion until translucent, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir red bell pepper and jalapeno pepper into onion mixture; cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low and mix pepperjack cheese and spinach into onion mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted and mixture is thick, 5 to 10 minutes. Slowly pour enough evaporated milk into cheese mixture, stirring constantly, until desired consistency is reached; season with salt. Continue to cook and stir over low heat until warmed through, at least 5 minutes more.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you want to have even more kick, chop the entire jalapeno with the veins and seeds.
  • If you wish to use fresh spinach, I would recommend that you reduce it in a separate pot to avoid the excess moisture.
