This recipe is awesome! I made it for a baby shower and it was a hit. Since then I've made it for another baby shower and a wedding luncheon, people asking me for the recipe each time. I double this recipe, using more cheddar and less sour cream and cream cheese (1 1/2 cups sour cream, 1 1/2 packages cream cheese) than it asks for and put it in a large bread bowl. I think what makes this so great is the salsa. If you don't have a really high quality salsa, it just won't turn out right. I go to the On the Border (mexican restaurant) and buy fresh salsa from the restaurant. It makes a HUGE difference and the result is amazing. I always serve with cut up baguettes, I don't like how it tastes with tortilla chips. I also increase my oven time to 2-3 hours when I double it and it comes out perfect after a little stirring halfway through. I highly recommend! It's one of my husband's favorites, no more rotel and velveeta for us! Thanks for the recipe Julie!

made the dip exactly as is but did not put in a bread bowl. i baked it until bubly and served with tortilla chips. This was nothing special, it was very tangy and quite thin. I would not make this again.

This is a hit. Great for a party. Friends had a Mexican dinner for 10 and our contribution was to be an appetizer. I didn't want to take a layered dip (good thing - someone else did) and this was perfect. I used a 1lb loaf but doubled the dip. When the dip ran low, I spooned in the dip that hadn't fit in the bread bowl (had heated it in the oven in a pie plate.) I served this on a big wooden platter with the torn-out bread and Fritos Scoops sprinkled around it. I'd been skeptical about baking this 1.5 hours, but after doubling the dip it needed at least that. Next time I will double it again but use a 2lb loaf (more bread to dip). The dip is yummy and goes fast.

Thanks for this recipe. It was a hit at my godson's christening reception. We also added a twist by serving it with bread squares, pretzels, and broccoli for dipping!! It was great!!

This is like heaven in an edible bowl! I use the hottest salsa possible to give it an extra kick, and also use a bit more cheese. I have only had raving compliments from family and friends!

We have made this for several parties...Everyone loves it and wants the recipe! Super easy.

This was fantastic, I did not double it, and it made plenty for 10 adults. I baked it in a glass dish, and served scooped chips around it. I did add cumin and hot sauce, used fresh medium heat salsa probably 1 1/2-2 cups.. will be making sure to make this often for my gathering or to take with me.

This was an excellent dip. I had a big cook out for Cinco De Mayo where I had many mexican dishes. This was was the one that everyone, and I mean everyone, raved over. And you can't go wrong with the presentation. The bread bowl adds a unique dimension.
