This dip is great with nacho chips, and you can make it hotter or milder depending on the type of salsa you use.

Use a mixer to get the flavors of the first three ingredients well blended. For variation, try folding the salsa into the first three ingredients (after mixing them together), rather than spreading it on top. Then, layer whatever you want on top (we do shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, and diced scallions). You can't go wrong with experimenting with different amounts of the various ingredients to reach different consistencies. This recipe also lends itself well to lowfat or fat-free sour cream and cream cheese. Read More

This dip was pretty good. Next time I will use a little more taco seasoning and maybe a spicier salsa. I liked the recipe alot and purposely found one without refried beans but you will find some diehards who wish the beans were an ingredient. Overall the dip is a decent crowd pleaser but not a huge hit. Read More

To be honest I never had the chance to try this after I made it for a BBQ party for 20 people. But the guests raved about it especially the teenagers! I'll try it again just to get a taste! Thanks Read More

This is one of my family and friends favorite! I think it's even better when you use the Hot and Spicy taco seasoning the medium salsa and add some jalapenos! Of course I like spicy food. 8-) Read More

I rated 4 star with some of my additions otherwise I think this recipe wold be a bit boring. Added only 1 tablespoon of BILL ECHOLS's taco seasoning and 1 1/2 tsp onion powder to the cheese mixture and as extra layers to the dish I added 1 lb of ground beef cooked with onions and a burrito seasoning mix and 1 each red and yellow pepper diced very small. Very nice to eat with the family on movie nights. Read More
