Creamy Cheesy Salsa Dip

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

Our favorite family dip, which we have been making for years. It's the best! It can be made in minutes for impromptu guests.


  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Add salsa, a little at a time, mixing well to prevent lumps.
  3. Stir in cheddar cheese.
  4. Can be served immediately, or chill until ready to serve (mixture will thicken upon chilling) Serve with tortilla chips or crackers or can also be used to stuff celery sticks.
  5. TIPS: You can also add some chopped green onion, chopped black olives, chopped red or green pepper for added crunch and variety.

excellent recipe! i usually serve this dip hot with fresh tortilla chips. i mix the salsa and cream cheese together and 1/2 the grated cheese. i then put it into a medium sized ramekin and then sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. bake it until the cheese is melty and serve immediately. sooooooooo good!

I think I allowed too much of the "juicy" part of the salsa to get into it, because it was a little runny for me. But the taste was great!

Hello Donna M, I could use some more of that right now! It was delicious and went so well with crudites(celery, radishes, carrots, broccoli, & cauliflower). I doubled the recipe and served it with Japanese vegetable chips, too. Thanks for making me look so good, Diane :=)
