Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chiles, drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup refrigerated Alfredo sauce
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen leaf spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • Tortilla chips

Directions

  1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute onion until tender. Add tomatoes and garlic; cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the cheeses and Alfredo sauce. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Add the tomato mixture, spinach, lime juice and Cajun seasoning. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. round baking dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until bubbly, 25-30 minutes. Dollop with sour cream. Serve with chips.
