This Mexican-inspired cheese dip can be made with any kind of cheese and your favorite salsa. Regular oregano may be used in place of the more strongly-flavored Mexican variety. Serve it warm with tortilla chips.

Herbed Feta Dip

This is a tasty, low-fat dip that is great with assorted veggies, crackers, and pita chips. I recommend letting it chill overnight to allow the flavors to develop.

Spicy South of the Border Spinach Cheese Dip

Good 'n' spicy. Not your typical spinach dip recipe. No artichokes, here! Serve this tasty treat with tortilla chips.

Roasted Red Pepper-Cheese Spread

Rating: 4.63 stars
Some ladies I know use to make a pimento cheese spread and sell it at the Augusta National Golf Course during Masters week. The only thing I knew about their recipe was that they used bell peppers instead of pimentos. I figured the rest out on my own. My family devours it every time I make it. Serve this with crackers, or spread it on bread for a tasty sandwich.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Rating: 4.73 stars
This dip is amazing -- so cheesy and fragrant. If you don't like artichokes, don't worry -- you'll never know they're in there! My only question is: Is it okay to just eat it with a spoon right out of the dish?

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Rating: 4.73 stars
I am continuously asked to bring this dip for parties and family get-togethers. People gather around the platter until it's gone.

Simple Artichoke Dip

Rating: 4.51 stars

Mexican White Cheese Dip/Sauce

Rating: 4.23 stars
This dip is similar to white cheese sauces served in many Mexican restaurants. The amount of heat can be adjusted by adding your favorite chili pepper or crushed cayenne pepper to taste. As is, it is kid-friendly, quick, and delicious! It can be used as a dip for tortilla chips or a sauce for many Mexican dishes.
