Cheesy Spinach Bacon Hot Dip

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by KathleenP

Hot appetizer dip I found on a box of Velveeta cheese and made for a family reunion. I made it in a mini-crockpot and served it in the same crockwhile the crockpot was plugged in, so it stayed hot throughout the family reunion. I got LOTS of compliments and requests for the recipe.
