Hot Mexican Dip

Pin It

I have a treat for you today.  Something to make during the holiday season to take to potlucks or for large family gatherings.  It can be made in advance and then re-heated.  This appetizer is just amazing ..... oh so very addicting.  Pop it in the crock-pot in the morning and it will stay warm enough to be dipped into all day, if it isn't all taken within a few minutes! A large four quart pot full just doesn't last long.

My niece Nicole brought it over during hunting season and I could not stay away from it.  It was an old family recipe and I can see why it was so popular for so many years.  

If you like Mexican .... you are going to LoVe this!

Hot Mexican Dip

1 1/2 pound lean hamburger
2 rolls of Jimmy Dean 'hot' sausage
2 pounds of Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
2 - 4 oz cans of green chilies
1 - 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 - 6 oz can tomato paste
1 - 3.8 can of sliced olives *optional*
1 - 4 oz can of jalapeno peppers *optional*

Brown the hamburger and Jimmy Dean sausage, drain well.

Place the meat and cheese in the crock-pot.  

Once the cheese begins to melt, add chilies, tomato sauce, tomato paste, olives and peppers.  Mix very well.

Once it has heated all through, serve with tortilla chips .... I happened to have guacamole chips.

Oooh, la, la.  Delicious!

Remember to give your loved ones a hug!


  1. What a treat, Debbie! I'm gonna print this recipe - our family loves those tortilla chips, this dip sound lovely!

  2. Sounds delish - wonder what I could use in place of Jimmy Dean Hot sausage?

  3. This looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing this on the Winter on the HomeAcre Hop!
