Creamy Mexican Dip

"This is a great cold dip for veggies or chips. Feel free to substitute light or fat free ingredients. The creamy ingredients really cut the heat of the Salsa, so if you like yours "hot" add your favorite hot sauce to taste. Medium salsa will yield a mild tasting dip."

    This was really good.... My mom used to make a dip using only sour cream and salsa... The cheese, mayo, and veggie soup mix are a nice addition.... I think next time, I'll add more sour cream (I love the flavor of sour cream) and more cheese.... This was really good.... Thanks for sharing.... Prepared for Photo Tag....

    This was great! I think I'm going to try adding cream cheese to this next time. Update! I added 4oz (1/2 a block) of cream cheese and it is soooooooo good! I will be making loads of it... there goes my diet

    This is a very tasty, easy-to-make dip that is very versatile, making it a great addition to any dip & dipper buffet! I used mild salsa this time around but might just make it a little hotter next time [OR use an extra sharp cheddar] & see how that goes! Thanks for this recipe!

    AshK, what a terrific dip! I made this tonight for an impromptu Cinquo de Mayo party. Everyone loved it. I have to say that I was quite surprised at how good it was. I would give it four stars for flavor and the additional star because it was so easy to prepare. I used reduced fat sour cream, medium salsa, and sharp cheddar. I think that I may try it with hot salsa or a can of green chilies next time for a little more bite. This definitely goes into the keeper file. Thank you for posting. UPDATE: I just finished the last of this dip and it tastes even better after sitting in the fridge for a day or two. Five stars for flavor and simplicity.

    Simple, easy and delicious! I only needed this for about 8 people so I halved the recipe. Big mistake, it was completely inhaled! I used a mild salsa but served it with hot pepper potato chips and spicy corn chips, and it was a hit!


<p>I am a step-mother of one 12 year old boy who will be a teen this summer (07). My family lives in the town my DH and I were born in, population 5000. By day I work in customer service, but in my spare time I am a chef, artist and photographer. Well... I play at those things, anyway. To date my DH and I have lost 75lbs combined on Weight Watchers, so I have joined to pick up some new low fat recipes to add to my collection. My biggest love in life, aside from my human family, are my dogs. I work for a dog rescue org. and love every minute of it. <br /> <br />We adopted Angel from the local Humane Society. Her mom was rescued from an abusive owner while pregnant with Angel's litter. She is a terrier mix and is wild as they come. She is easily the happiest dog I have ever met. She's smart, too. She loves to steal Gizmo's toys and hide them from him. <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br />Gizmo was rescued from a breeder by our neighbor's kids. They discovered that Basenjis are a handful, however, and when their work schedules were increased they needed to find him a new home. We have fallen in love with him, in all his haughty ways. He has a great sense of humor and is the oddest dog I have ever owned. <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br />Participation Awards <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= width=75% /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= width=50% /><img src= alt= width=50% /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></p>
