Spinach and Bacon Queso

This is a queso upgrade. We like to make the regular velvetta and diced tomatoes with green chilies version. BUT now I'm taking it up a notch. Bacon makes everything better...and well, cream cheese does too. With the spinach, I feel like I'm eating a veggie. :) Can't go wrong with this dip! 

Spinach and Bacon Queso
adapted from kraftrecipes.com
5oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained
16 oz. Velvetta, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 can (10 oz.) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

In microwave safe bowl, combine spinach, Velvetta, cream cheese, and tomatoes. Microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and stir. Return to microwave and cook for 2-3 more minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Stir in bacon. Serve hot with tortilla chips.
