If you love spinach dip and Mexican food then you’ll LOVE my Mexican Spinach Dip recipe! It’s a tasty Super Bowl recipe!
It’s January and that means it’s crunch time for football playoffs! At my house this means I need to whip up some seriously tasty game day eats like this Mexican Spinach Dip! This is a fabulous Super Bowl dip recipe because it combines 2 things people love: Mexican food and spinach dip!
What I love most about this recipe is that you can make it ahead of time and then just heat it up during pregame! This is what I like to call entertaining done easy!
Cook’s Note – Mexican Spinach Dip
- To make this dip ahead of time: prepare the dip all the way up to baking. Cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours. You’ll need to add about 5 additional minute to the cooking time to compensate for the dip going into the oven while it’s chilled.
- Please use a high-quality aged cheddar cheese for this recipe. My favorite brand is Kerrygold. Here in California it’s readily available in grocery stores. In my opinion it;s worth the splurge because the flavor is sharp, creamy, and amazing!
- For this recipe you can use an 8 or 9-inch square baking dish. This one is my favorite, plus it’s pretty, too!
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- 1 large jalapeño chile, seeded and chopped fine
- 2 (10-ounce) cans Ro-Tel tomatoes, drained
- 1 small onion, chopped fine
- 1 (10-ounce) box frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 3 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- Move oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8-inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl mix together cream cheese, sour cream, and jalapeño. Fold in tomatoes, onion, spinach, cheddar, salt, chili powder, and cumin. Mix until well combined.
- Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. and bake 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are bubbling and tip is golden brown. Serve with tortilla chips or french bread rounds.
