Queso Fundido

A delicious cheese dip that can be served as a appetizer or just for a snack.  This can be served with tortilla chips, pita bread, pita chips, or whatever sounds good to you.  Super easy!


  • 1-1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup queso fresco, crumbled (or you can use feta cheese)
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped rough and packed tight
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oven to 350°.

Put cheeses in a mixing bowl and set aside

In a skillet over medium high heat, melt butter and sauté the mushrooms until cooked, 2-3 minutes.  Add the spinach and minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste and sauté until spinach is wilted and garlic is fragrant about 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and pour over cheese.  Toss to mix.

Place cheese mixture into a casserole that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired.  

Bake in preheated oven until bubbling and lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.

Serve with your choice of chips.
