Soccer season is back in full swing, and my family is, of course, cheering for Sporting Kansas City. Who else would we cheer for? They’re a force to be reckoned with, powerful and exciting to watch. But there’s just something about game day, especially an away game day, that calls for good food while watching the game. That’s why we’ve been loving this copycat of a Kansas favorite– Espinaca just like the kind at Jose Peppers, a local Mexican place that we adore. This is an almost identical copycat, the perfect spinach queso recipe!

The first thing you’re going to do is get that extra creamy, cheesy base going. That’s where you’ll start with your favorite block processed cheese and 4 blocks of cream cheese. Now, I’ll note that this is going to be a mega-sized batch for a mega-sized tailgate. But if you’re looking for something a little smaller, just half or quarter the recipe to suit your needs. We like to make a batch big enough to feed the whole team.

Once you’ve added the cheese and cream cheese to the slow cooker, you’ll need to add some heavy whipping cream. This will really amp up the creamy flavor. (And yes, the calorie count– some dips are worth it in moderation).

Cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles come next in this slow cooker spinach queso. Our family is a big fan of mild, and since we’re feeding a crowd including kids, mild really is the best choice to suit a variety of taste buds. However, this is a great place to kick it up a notch if you would like by choosing a hotter variety.

Toss in diced onions, half of a diced jalapeno, and some chopped spinach. (It isn’t a slow cooker spinach queso without some spinach!) We use frozen a lot of times because it’s convenient to have on hand for whenever we decide to make the dip, but going with fresh is just fine, too!

Chicken bouillon cubes help round out the flavor, and of course, it isn’t a recipe here without garlic.

Finish it off with milk, then set your slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for 8 until your dip is hot, bubbly, and creamy.
