After my last Abuelo’s incident, I figured it was time for
Espinaca At Home
(Quick side note: welcome back to #MeatlessMonday. It’s been awhile, but the drought is finally over.)
So, you may be wondering what is this espinaca that I speak of. Alternately, you may have ordered espinaca before. Either way, let me assure that cardboard or no, if you have not ordered the espinaca from Abuelo’s, you haven’t had espinaca as good as it can be.
See, most of the time espinaca is a white cheese dip that has been swirled with spinach, spices, and sometimes other vegetables like corn or red peppers. As is, it’s delicious. However, Abuelo’s took the concept and blasted it to new heights of flavor when they devised the devilishly delicious espinaca casserole which looks a little like what’s pictured above (and looks exactly like the picture in the other link, which I need not display again.)
Either way, what the good folks at Abuelo’s did was take the original cheese dip concept, add some different flavors, spices, etc., top it with cheese and finally bake it. Yes, there are a few steps to make the dish, but it’s not terribly difficult to execute.
And it’s worth it.
