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.
