  • Cheese: Cubed Velveeta makes for a very smooth dip.
  • Salsa: A jar of salsa adds the perfect amount of flavor.
  • Beans: A can of drained pinto beans adds extra heartiness.
  • Olives: Contributes to heartiness as well.

How to Serve

  • In addition to tortilla chips, you can also serve this dip with Frito scoops, pieces of crusty bread, veggie strips.
  • This delicious dip can also be a topping for a taco salad, enchiladas, baked potatoes (try my slow cooker baked potatoes), crockpot refried beans, or rice. You can also make homemade nachos or turn this into vegetarian nachos by leaving out the meat altogether.
  • As for toppings and garnishes, consider topping with black olives, sliced green onions, extra bacon crisps, a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese, pico de gallo, fresh cilantro, and the like.
