"This is very simple to make, but very flavorful with a Tex-Mex flair. Great to take to potlucks along with a bag of nacho cheese tortilla chips..."

  1. This was such an awesome dip we really enjoyed this flavorful dip and it was super easy to make. Made as directed didnt change a thing. Served with tostitos scoops.This recipe makes a lot,and I will definately serve this to guests in the future-its that good.:)thnks!PeggyLynn
  2. This was a life saver. I had to bring something for a potluck and this was just the ticket. Easy and good. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Very simple to make after forgetting about a lunch potluck >_<. Everyone love it. Thank you.
  4. We had this as part of a Sunday night dinner. It was a big hit. I have tried a bunch of these Veleveeta dips and I think this is my all time favorite. I did forget to add the sour cream. It came together very quickly because I had some browned beef in the freezer. I just put the frozen beef in a saucepan with the onions and garlic. After a few minutes I added the rest of the ingredients and kept on medium low until it was all heated through. I will make this again.
  5. I halved the recipe and took it to a small office party. Everyone loved it. I turned the "heat" up a little with chopped jalapenos, a little hot sauce, and a dash of cayenne. ~Joe


  1. This was SO great!! I used green onion instead of red, and i used Rotel instead of salsa. It came out just perfect! I would suggest using a little more the a lb of velveeta to make it a little more cheesy and a little less meaty.


Editor's Note: Sadly Stacky5 passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008. Hi! My name is Stacy, and I'm a single Mom who works full-time with 4 kids ranging from ages 9 to 21, a brand new granddaughter named Faith, and a cat named Pubert (we call him Pube) who is also my kid... That's his photo as my icon. Oh, and a new kitten that the kids named "KeeKee" but who I call Little Kitteh. I love them with all my heart! Even though I don't have my parents anymore, their presence is always felt and their love has resonated in my life, even after all this time. You'll find a lot of my posted recipes that refer to "Jolean" --- and that's my Mom. :) I sure do miss her... I love music, especially 70's music, cats, incense & lavalights, candles, and I love to play guitar. I've been called an old "hippie chick," and I don't mind that label in the least. I also love to try other people's recipes and find ones that remind me of my Mother, and those precious memories that I had growing up in a household with such a wonderfully comforting cook...I work full-time in a real estate office as an office administrator. I came to this site looking for recipes that were tried and true. I stayed at this site because I found people who were kind, loving, caring and shared the same interest that I do --- food and cooking. I've saved a lifetime of recipes and learned so much about cooking and ingredients that I actually feel proud of my cooking. I bet my Mom looks down on me with pride every time I cook a new recipe from RecipeZaar, and I bet my Dad cracks up every time he sees me photographing what I've cooked! My daughters have actually gotten into the act, too, and are quite versed in searching for recipes and answers here on Zaar. Makes me proud to be their Mom. RecipeZaar isn't just a "website." It's a lifestyle. And some of the friends I've made here are LIFELONG friends to me --- and in my estimation, those types of people are a rare thing to find in this world. :) P.S.
