  • About This Recipe

    “This is an adopted recipe that I have adjusted to include exact amounts for the ingredients.I used a pint of Canned Basic Salsa (Canned Basic Salsa) when I prepared it and found that while it was flavorful, it wasn’t spicy at all.You may want to add hot sauce, cayenne pepper or diced jalapenos if you like things kicked up a notch. I also melted my cheese in the microwave and stirred in the other ingredientsbefore pouring into a mini crockpot for serving.You will want to keep an eye on it, if you serve it this way.The cheese can separate if it gets too hot in the crockpot.”

  • “A very easy, tasty and impressive dip! I put all the ingredients in a zip bag the day before and transported to my DIL’s house. Poured everything in a mini dip crockpot and in an hour it was ready for eating. Very good on potatoes too. A definite keeper. Thanks.”

  • “I made for a get together, and people seemed to like it. Since it was vague in the recipe on the exact amount of sour cream and cheese, I might have gotten the balance of that off a little.I’d also suggest adding at least 1/3 cup of hot sauce for kick if you like things spicy.”

  • “This is very good and easy dip. Once I started dipping I couldn’t stop”
