If you love spinach dip and Mexican food, then you’ll LOVE my Mexican Spinach Dip recipe! It’s a tasty party, holiday, tailgating, and anytime 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 recipe is fabulous for the Super Bowl dip recipe because it combines two 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 during pregame! This is what I like to call entertaining done easy! Plus, all you need are a few pantry and freezer ingredients.
Cook’s Note – Mexican Spinach Dip:
- To make this dip ahead of time: prepare the dip up to baking. Cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours. You’ll need to add about five additional minutes to the cooking time to compensate for the dip going into the oven while it’s chilled.
- Please use high-quality aged cheddar cheese for this recipe. My favorite brand is Kerrygold, and it’s readily available in grocery stores. In my opinion, it’s worth the splurge because the flavor is sharp, creamy, and fabulous!
