Serrano Cheese Spinach

Stubb's BBQ Serrano Cheese Spinach

One of the most talked about menu items at Stubb's BBQ in Austin (other than the brisket) is this signature side: their Serrano Cheese Spinach. Spicy and creamy with a little kick. This was sooooo good!
Course Sides


  • 1 lb frozen chopped spinach
  • 8 oz. cream cheese cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled serranos
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper


  • Drain well into a colander, press out excess water with spoon or spatula.
  • Place cream cheese, cream, serranos, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium saucepan. Add the spinach and stir over medium-low heat until cream cheese melts.
  • When all ingredients are evenly combined and mixture is warm, serve.


This is an original C.B. Stubblefield recipe. Cook spinach according to directions. Do not overcook!
