Baked Mexican Cheese Dip – Creamy, spicy, and super cheesy! The perfect dip for game day, get togethers or just because!
This cheese dip has been in the family for about at least 35 years. It became known as “The Dip” in the family, it was so popular and everyone just knew what it was. It came from a magazine with the name Baked Mexican Cheese Dip, so that is what we are calling it here.
It is loaded with cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese and spicy salsa. Baked until super creamy and extra delicious, it will surely be a hit at your next get together. It is authentic Mexican….not even close! But because I got the recipe out of a magazine, I am keeping their name, since the recipe was originally theirs.
Today I am partnering with Dairy MAX; a non-profit dairy council representing dairy farm families across Colorado, southwest Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, western Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming. As you know if you have been around here before, I am a huge proponent of real dairy being a part of your diet. Not only is it super nutritious and full of nutrients, it tastes good!
What’s In Mexican Cheese Dip
This could not be easier to throw together, just 4 ingredients I have had memorized for years!
- Cream Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Cheddar Cheese
- Hot Salsa – there isn’t much in there, so even if you don’t like things very spicy, I like to use hot for the flavor.
Milk and other dairy products are a major part of a healthy diet. You don’t have to just eat a piece of cheese or have a glass of milk. You can make an easy dinner like Sausage Pasta Skillet that has cheese mixed in. Or it can be having yogurt for a snack or even Banana Pancakes for breakfast that are loaded with milk. Or just go to town on this cream cheese dip, up to you!
How To Make Mexican Cheese Dip
- In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together until they are well combined.
- Spread into an oven safe baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes until hot and bubbly.
You can also make this ahead and put in a crock pot to warm for a few hours before you are ready to serve it.
How To Serve Mexican Cheese Dip
Cheese Dip is pretty much a staple in every house during football season, and this Mexican cheese dip is a fun way to mix it up! Serve with plenty of tortilla chips for dipping. You can even bulk it up by adding seasoned meat or beans.
A little hot salsa goes a long way, but if you like it extra hot, feel free to mix in extra hot sauce.
Can I Make This In The Crockpot
Absolutely! You can even make it ahead of time and have it waiting for you. Just mix all of the ingredients together and instead of putting in the oven, put it in the crockpot and have it hot and bubbly for a party! Have your crockpot on low for a couple hours, stirring every so often until it is melted and hot.
So the next time you are going to make a cheese dip, mix it up! Everyone will love this version of cream cheese dip with a kick! You can find tons more dairy recipes at DairyMax.
