day 297: hot fiesta dip

With holidays approaching, I thought I would share one of the easiest—but most popular items---that we take to gatherings, especially ones with kids! 

It really is just as easy as the instructions say. Great for Christmas parties, Christmas Eve family nights, and youth gatherings, and more—you will want to keep the ingredients for this one on hand.

Hot Fiesta Dip

1 (#10) can cheese sauce (or 3 blocks Velveeta)

2 lbs taco meat (precooked; that is 5 cups cooked taco meat)

4 cans chili with no beans

1-2 tsp chili powder

1-2 tsp garlic powder

Mix, heat, and serve.


1. We like using the canned cheese sauce (or four cans of no name Cheeze Whiz) as it stirs up so quickly—and then we just take out the portion we need for the gathering and stick it in the small crock or medium crock on low.

2. We almost always make this large amount for two or three different events in one weekend or week. With the cheese sauce, we can heat up each portion as we use it and store the rest in the fridge.

3. Sometimes we add a jar or two of salsa.

4. You may serve with sour cream, jalapenos, and salsa on the side, if desired.

5. Note: This makes a ton!
