2 packages frozen chopped spinach
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup vegetable liquor (reserved liquid from spinach)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt to taste
6 oz. Velveeta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped jalapeno peppers
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Red pepper to taste

Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain and reserve liquor. Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add flour, stirring until blended and smooth, but not brown. Add onion and cook until soft, but not brown. Add milk and vegetable liquor slowly, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Cook until smooth and thick; continue stirring. Add seasonings, Worcestershire sauce, jalapenos and cheese, which has been cut into small pieces. Stir until melted. Combine with cooked spinach. May be served immediately or put into a casserole and topped with buttered breadcrumbs. May be made ahead of time and frozen.
