Nacho Salsa Dip
Nacho salsa dip is a Tex-Mex party appetizer consisting of three simple ingredients: nacho cheese sauce, salsa, and lean ground beef. This recipe is very similar to a beef queso dip with a nacho flavored twist, and is a great dip to make in advance and simply reheat for your party.
How to Make this Recipe
This dip is fairly effortless to prepare, the beef needs to be browned in a skillet, then mixed with salsa and heated nacho cheese sauce. As soon as it is mixed together it can be served with tortilla chips.
Personally, I recommend using my nacho cheese sauce recipe, but store bought works equally well. You will need one 15 ounce can from the store, or 2 cups of my homemade nacho cheese.
I also recommend using lean ground beef, such as 90/10 beef. Fattier beef adds grease to the dip that just isn't needed and doesn't improve the flavor.
How to customize your nacho salsa dip
You can use my recipe as a create base to customize to fit your tastes. You can add fresh onions for a crunch, your favorite hot sauce, or even substitute out salsa for Pico de Gallo. If you want the dip to be even creamier, cream cheese can be added along with shredded cheese, but that would dilute the nacho and salsa flavors, so adjust accordingly.
How to serve Nacho Salsa Dip
This dip should be served warm alongside tortilla chips. If you plan on bringing it to a potluck I recommend putting it in a small slow cooker to keep warm while serving. It is best to use a slow cooker that has a "Warm" setting, so you don't cook the sauce.
