Salsa's great served alone with chips, but mixing and heating it with cream cheese makes a wonderfully warm dip!
Updated Jan 30, 2006

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
  • 1 cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
  • Nacho or tortilla chips, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat cream cheese and salsa over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cream cheese is melted.
  • 2
    Keep warm in heatproof dish. Serve with chips.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Vary the amount of "heat" in this dip by purchasing mild, medium or hot salsa or picante sauce.
  • tip 2
    This dip is easy to microwave. Place cream cheese and salsa in 1-quart microwavable casserole. Microwave uncovered on High 3 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until cheese is melted.
  • tip 3
    Make this appetizer colorful for the holidays. Surround the dip with red and green tortilla chips.
