I’m always looking for quick appetizers to throw together for a crowd. This white spinach jalapeno queso was the hit of our Super Bowl party. It is bursting with flavors that give a little kick with each bite. It is a recipe that you will make once and have requested often.

  6. Recipe: The Recipe Critic

Simple to mix together in a skillet or sauce pan. You literally gradually add ingredients and stir until all the cheese is melted. It is a dip that everyone will love! We serve ours with tortilla chips but any type of cracker or chip would work.

Growing up the only dip we ever had was 7 layer dip. When I went away to college my roommates introduced me to queso and my life changed forever. This queso isn’t packed with artificial flavors, it’s the fresh stuff, the healthier stuff. It will your life!

Not only is it easy to make but it is simple to reheat and share. This will be a new favorite in your collection!
