Gone in a Blink Nacho Dip

This is a favourite amungst both my side of the family, and Bo's. My mom's got her version, my Nana has her's, and Jenny's got her's too. Now, I've finally got my own!

This isn't to say that everyone else's wasn't good enough for me. The issue was that no one could ever remember exactly what portions they used of the ingredients, which meant that 50% of the time it was great, and 50% of the time it was either too runny, or too hard.

So, I made it a couple of times, and actually remembered to measure what I was throwing in, and I've finally got it down. Yes!

Worlds Best (and easiest) Nacho Dip


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chill Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6 - 8

Ingredients:


1 pkg cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
½ tbsp taco seasoning (optional)
1 jar salsa
1 ½ c shredded cheese (I like a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)

Directions:


1. Shred the cheese that you want to use.

2. Put the cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor and mix until smooth. Add the sour cream and taco seasoning and mix until well combined.

3. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly in the bottom of a glass baking dish. Top with the salsa, then with the shredded cheese. Chill until the cheese firms back up a bit, about 30 minutes. If you're in a rush, it's find to eat right away.

Enjoy!

NOTE: There are all kinds of other things you can add in here, like freshly chopping jalapeƱos, onions or peppers. I prefer to leave it as is, and just bump up the flavor by using home made salsa when I have an extra jar lying around.

Hm, that seems like a pretty tasty dip. Adding a little extra spice in the salsa might be good, though. When it comes to stuff like nachos, a kick of spice can make something good into something great.

I have a similar recipe, except I use cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream. I layer with salsa, then lettuce and shedded cheese. My husband ate the whole bowl!!

I made this today for an early Christmas get together with my Dad's side of the family. It was great except I must of used too much salsa or something bc there was tons of juices in the dish! But really I didn't care because it was delish! Thanks for a great and easy dip recipe :)

What works really good is mix seafood sauce with salsa and then spread on sour cream/ cream cheese blend. It gives it a really great zip.
Also adding mock crab on top of that layer really gives it a seafood taste without having to splurge for crab or lobster
