Mexican Cheeseburger Dip

If you don’t like this recipe, I don’t want to hear about it. Just keep it to yourself, I don’t care.
Do I sound a bit defensive?
Perhaps that’s because this is THE TRASHIEST thing I have EVER made on this blog. And this isn’t a really classy publication in the first place. So you can imagine how embarrassing this dish is.
And also…how mind numbingly tasty.
Without further ado:
Mexican Cheeseburger Dip

1 lb. ground beef
1 15 oz jar queso
1 15 oz jar salsa
Chili seasoning to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste

1) Brown the beef in a skillet over medium high heat.

2) When the meat is cooked all the way through, with no pink, add the dry seasonings. You want a chili seasoning with no added salt, since the queso has quite a bit of salt already – the seasonings are just to add depth and heat. 

3) Add the queso to the pan.

4) Add the salsa. Combine, wait till it is heated through, taste for seasonings. 

5) Serve with tortilla chips.

I know this dip isn’t pretty. It sure isn’t healthy. But it is so delicious. Cheesy, creamy, spicy, beefy…just like the world’s best Taco Bell. So indulgent and unspeakably satisfying. No need to add sour cream to this, though some hot sauce wouldn’t hurt. Just tortilla chips, a beer, and your tastebuds.
And like I said, if you are too high brow for this…just keep it to yourself.
More dip for the rest of us. 


  1. My Goodness. If I don't have any tortilla chips can I just use roadkill? (Only kidding!)

  2. Why is this trasy? Or does that mean I am too trashy to tell? LOL! Looks tasty indeed.

  3. That looks super tasty! I have a secret love for the tostitos queso dip but its too salty, especially with the tortilla chips but adding beef to it might dull the saltiness. I have to try this!

    I want to mention, I couldn't leave a comment using firefox, for some reason, the comment box disappeared. I don't know if it's just my computer. I'm using IE now and it works fine.

  4. OMG I just refreshed it and the comment box showed up! Maybe I'm going crazy but I swear I refreshed it twice before and no box! Sorry about that!

  5. Looks pretty damn good

    @Justin-Or you can use it to replace the beef, easily 😉
    @Jenn-I just feel guilty it is preservative filled, but it is SO tasty!
    @Cee-so glad you liked the addition!
    @Julie-and oh, it IS!
