I came across this recipe on the back of my chili bottle. It was a fairly easy recipe to make and with so little ingredients so I made it over the weekend. Although I’m not a fan of processed cheese, this was quite tasty. My family came by and we all snacked on this dip. My nephew LOVED it! He’s a cheese lover so what’s not to like? This dip is perfect for those casual impromptu entertaining and great for when you’re watching a game. Bust open a bottle of beer and it’s all good!
- 1 pound of ground beef
- olive oil for cooking
- 4 teaspoons of chili powder
- 3/4 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 3/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 (16 ounce) jar of salsa (I used sodium free salsa)
- 1 pound of processed cheese, cubed (I used Velveeta)
- 1 small tomato, chopped
- 1 scallion, finely chopped
In a 3 quart pot, combine ground beef and a drizzle of olive oil. Crumble and brown ground beef. Once cooked, use a slotted spoon to transfer meat into a bowl. Set aside. Remove any grease left in the pot. Dump meat back in the pot over low heat and then add in chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salsa and processed cheese. Cook until cheese melts. At this point you can ladle this into a bowl. Add chopped tomatoes and scallions. Serve with tortilla chips.

A perfect dip that just makes me yearn for chili 🙂
Thanks Rosemary! 🙂
That last shot is incredible. Who’s your hand model? 😉
This dip was soooo good. It’s hard to stop eating it even though you know it’s not terribly healthy. But once in awhile is fine. At least the salsa was sodium free!
You are! 😉 Lovely hand btw and yes everything in moderation is good. 🙂
Just watch you r great pictures and im all ready hunger..Anne wow!!!!
You’re so sweet, thank you Massi! 😉
So mouth watering!!! If that’s what you had for a snack, I bet dinner was even more awesome! 😀
Spoiler alert: We actually had this for dinner because it was so filling. LOL
Chris was right, this cooks up a lot! So we were too full to have dinner. 🙂
Would never have thought of using minced/ground beef in a dip! How yummy is that. Although I’d have to sub Cheddar as Velveeta isn’t available here. And do love that last photo! I wouldn’t be able to include my hands in a shot as they’re not that attractive.
Thanks Johnny! My husband helped me out with the last photo. It was too difficult to shoot with my hand so I used his. 😉
That would surely make for an easy and quick meal.
Genius. This would be a good nacho maker, too.
I love nachos with Chili, more cheese please!
Double like!!! Looks so good and yummy.
I, too, avoid processed cheese but this dip works for me! It would be perfect for game day or movie night, when nothing more than a tasty snack is required. Thanks, Anne, for sharing.
Thanks John for taking the time to comment! 🙂

I have to make this gorgeous looking dip as it gives me an excuse to eat tortilla chips. Which just happen to be my favourite snack…EVER!
Not sure if you dig corn chips but it would work here too and it’ll scoop a lot more. 🙂
Sounds perfect for entertaining and parties. 🙂 I love how easy it is to prepare too.

My teenagers would inhale this. Great for a party or game days.. I know I am not a big fan of processed cheese but every once in awhile you have to let kids be kids or adults be kids… Take Care, BAM
