C’mon Now Dip, Baby, Dip

This recipe reminds me of my first little man.  He was less than a month old when my sister-in-law, Bobbi,  made this for my birthday party.  I was all tryin’ to lose the baby weight {what a JOKE!} and then she went and pulled this card outta her deck!!!  Darn her!  I couldn’t scoop it into my mouth fast enough.  Seriously.  Put this on your list as a MUST SERVE at your next party or get-together!  There won’t be any left…PROMISE!!!  {Especially if you have friends like me who like to hover around the food table ;)}


1 lb. ground beef

1 lb. sausage {I used Jimmy Dean, HOT}

1 medium jar of salsa {I used PACE Picante Sauce}

2 pkgs. cream cheese, softened

2 cups shredded cheese {I used colby & monterrey jack}

Brown meats together and drain.  Return to pan and add salsa.  Simmer on medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often.  Meanwhile, spread the cream cheese evenly in a 9x12 baking dish.  Top with the meat/salsa combo and sprinkle cheese on top.  Bake at 350 until cheese melts.

SOOOOO yummy!!!  I think this dip tastes best with Frito’s Scoops, but that’s just my opinion.  Try it for yourself and see what you think!!!

And here’s another one to try…

My other sister-in-law, Michele, made this one for us the same summer and it’s JUST as good!  Crazy enough, I was looking for a recipe in one of my many Paula Deen cookbooks the other day and I found this recipe in there, too!  No pics of this one though…BOO!!!!


1 15oz. can of chili with beans {I really like Wolf Brand}

1 15 oz. can of chili, no beans

2 pkgs. cream cheese

2 cups cheddar cheese

3 green onion tops, chopped {optional}

Heat chili in a saucepan on medium heat for 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, press cream cheese on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  Pour chili over cream cheese & sprinkle cheese over top.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until bubbly.  Remove & top with green onions.  Serve with tortilla chips or Frito’s.

Seriously you guys…throw a party this weekend so you can enjoy these yummy dips for yourself!!!  Or if you’re like me, tell Mr. Spouse this is what’s for dinner.  Bust out a few heated tortillas and go to town!  {I like to improvise on my “I-don’t-feel-like-cooking-tonight” nights}.
