1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 15 oz. can ROTEL original diced tomatoes and chiles, drained
2 pkgs. frozen chopped spinach, thoroughly drained
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup half and half
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, shredded
6 ounces Mild Cheddar, shredded
TO SERVE:
2 tablespoons sour cream

Instructions
Saute onion with 2 tbsp. cooking oil in skillet over medium heat until softened.
