"I have been making this Mexican-inspired dip for years. It's similar to a dip seen in advertisements for processed American cheese, but with my own twists. It's great as an appetizer, but this hearty mixture of beef, cheese and refried beans can also be served as a full meal. Serve with tortilla chips." — Jenny

processed American cheese, cubed
1 (8 ounce) jar
1 (2 ounce) can
chopped black olives, drained
1 (16 ounce) can
A really easy recipe. Not only is it kid friendly but the kids helped me make it. To make it even easier I use the 93% ground beef so you can skip draining it. My group liked it with the hot & chunky salsa.
I was ok, I didn't care for the texture of the beans in the cheese dip. If I make it again I'll leave the beans out and put sausage in instead to give it more of a zip.
THIS WAS GREAT. I THINK WE FOUND SOMETHING NEW TO ADD TO OUR CHRISTMAS EVE BUFFET.
This was a good recipe. Instead of using salsa I used a can of rotel tomatoes.Everyone liked it! Thanks!
Oh my gosh, this was great! I did leave out the olives as I dislike them. I generally prefer cheddar or Jack cheese for something like this and was a bit leary of the American cheese. And I could tell it was American, but it was very subtle and just blended in with the other flavors. This is not a very spicy dip and is a bit different than some other similar ones, but it does have flavor. (And a hot salsa would spice it up if someone wants that. I used mild.) Great with tortilla chips and I wanted to just keep eating the stuff after it was gone. Unfortunately it's not something I would make often cause it's so fattening (even w/low fat cheese, milk & vegetarian beans, there's still the beef & tortilla chips), and I also try to keep cut back on the red meat. Definitely "junk" food. So sad. :-(
I made this for a potluck and there was not a drop left! It is super easy. I have made it with or without the olives. And I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. Thanks! I will be making it again tomorrow for a football party.
We made this for a game night with our friends and everyone really liked it. When I found the recipe, I was hoping it was more of a bean dip than a cheese dip but it was still really good as is. Next time I will try adding another can of beans just to see how I like that.
Easy to make, big hit with the family!
