Hot Spinach Dip

This is a lot like the classic cheese dip but with a little healthy spinach thrown in for good measure.
The recipe called for salsa but I think you could probably use Rotel if you have that in your pantry.  I wish I had found the white Velveeta because I think it would have been prettier.
I chose to make this in the crock pot.  Whenever I melt cheese in the crock pot I like to use these liners because it makes for very easy clean up.
Cut up the 1 lb Velveeta cheese.
Cut up 8 oz of cream cheese.
10 oz of chopped spinach, thawed, drained very well.  I squeezed and squeezed the spinach to get all the moisture out of it.  It is amazing how much liquid will come out.
The recipe called for 3/4 of a jar of salsa.  I reserved some but ended up using all of it because it got a little thick.
Throw it all in the crock pot and let it melt then stir well.
It is ready for the chips now.
