Hot Spinach Taco Dip

Hot Spinach Taco Dip by Can you believe it is almost the middle of November?  Before we know it we will be knee-deep in holiday party preparations.  I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to take to a party is a dip for all to enjoy.  Hot Spinach Taco Dip is one of those dips that is hard to stay out of.  We like to eat it with Frito Scoops but it is also good on crackers.

With only six ingredients, Hot Spinach Taco Dip is an appetizer that is quick and easy to prepare making it great for the busy upcoming holiday season.  Spinach, salsa, Monterey Jack, cream cheese and red wine vinegar are mixed together and topped with sliced black olives.  The dip bakes until it is hot and bubbly or it can be heated in the microwave.

These pictures were taken when the dip was hot out of the oven.  After the dip stands for about ten minutes it will thicken.  (If you can wait that long!)

Not only is this good as a dip, it’s also good as a baked potato topping.  We’ve had baked potatoes topped with this dip as a simple weeknight dinner and quite enjoyed it.  While the dip baked in the oven, I microwave potatoes.  The dip and potatoes are done at about the same time making it a meal that is on the table in less than 30 minutes.
