I used scallions (green onions) and a red bell pepper instead of green to look a little more festive. I spread it into a pretty red pie plate and topped it with paprika before baking. It was delicious and everyone loved it. This tastes great on rye crackers.

This is a really tasty dip, hearty and a nice alternative to sweeter spreads. I'm a little salt sensitive, but it's easy to reduce the saltiness of the chipped beef by soaking/rinsing the dried chipped beef in water for a while before you drain/dry and add in to the mixture.

I tried this at Thanksgiving and it went over really well. Everyone thought it tasted like a warm cheese ball, but very good and different from the norm. Salty due to the beef and a strong onion taste, but you could probably reduce the onion a little if you wish. Very thick and had to be mixed in a mixer on low. Definitely a keep for pitch-ins and holidays!

SALTY! I forgot to follow the suggestions to rinse the beef! This is a very mild flavored dip.

I love this recipe! Though the beef can be a little salty I rinse it off in cold water and pat it dry before I chop it up. I serve mine with bugles or corn chips it is great! One thing I never tried it with was the cheddar cheese. I will have to try it, the more cheese the better!

I took this to a card party Saturday night. Everyone thought it was yummy! I added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the recipe. It took a little longer than 45 minutes to cook. The center was warm when I took it out of the oven after that time. I would recommend a longer cooking time. I baked it in a pie plate and served it with corn chips. People were also using crackers to eat it too. I wonder if this would work in a fondue pot. That way it would stay warm thoughtout the whole party. The hostess microwaved the dish when it became room temp because everyone liked it hot. Enjoy!

This is a great dip!! I have been eating this for about 20 years. Try adding garlic powder, and also just using one jar of dried beef (and can even up the cream cheese to 2, and still not lose any flavor). DON'T forget to rinse the beef!!! Love this one!

My mom used to make something similar to this, but it was a cheese ball, not a warm dip. Just make this, form it into a ball, wrap in saran wrap and let sit for a few days (or make it a few days ahead of time). Take it out an hour before you want it, and serve with crackers. Yummy!
