A definite crowd pleaser, and not too spicy for those who usually shy away from chili or salsa dips. Served with tortilla chips. Best served warm, but still retains a good dipping consistency when cold or at room temperature. This dip can be served in a "bread bowl" (a hollowed out round loaf).

I'm unsure what process cheese food is. I grated sharp cheddar cheese in its place. Is that OKAY? It sure tasted good. Went great as an appetizer for our card party! Read More

This was really good but I arranged the dish a little differently. I mixed softened cream cheese with the salsa and smoothed it into a casserole dish. I then layered with a "healthy" chili containing beans (because we love them) to which I added a little cayenne for some heat and again topped with fresh shredded cheddar and canned chile peppers. I popped the dish into the micorwave for a few minutes and it came out great. Thanks Mary! Read More

Delicious recipe my husband loved it and took the leftovers to work the next day and all his coworkers raved about it. Serve with Fritos scoops. Read More

this was by far the easiest dip I've ever made and everyone loved it! I made it for the football game this past weekend and there wasn't a drop left by the time I got to the table. I had to make some more just so I could try it! So worth it! Read More

Tasty! This went well with our mexican-themed dinner which included an enchilada casserole and mexican cream cheese roll-ups (also found on this site). I still prefer my "danger dip" recipe over this one but it was similar in taste and still pretty good. Fritos "scoops" worked best! Thanks. Read More

This was good though since I am not a Velveeta fan I used a mild cheddar instead.Seemed to be a crowd pleaser as I had none left over. Read More

As suggested by other members I used Velveeta Jalapeno Cheese The Campbells Chili Soup and hot sausage and it completely made this dip. I am not sure how delicious it would have been without these specifics. Took to a party where it was a hit! Making it for another party tonight...it was super when it was hot but yet still great cold! Never going back to old Taco dip! Read More
