It’s SUPER BOWL time!  Thank GOD! I am so tired of football. With three boys we have a game on ALL weekend, every weekend from September to February.  And since my husband is an Eagles fan it has been an even longer 2 years. So, I am excited for Sunday to get here:) I’m not excited for the game, is anyone, but I am excited for the food and for football to be over so we can watch basketball or golf, ugh.

Now we all know that people throw Super Bowl parties so that everyone can cheat on their new year diet, right? The food is always so fabulous and so not diet! Here is a dip that I have served or taken to a party for the past few years-Beef Enchilada Dip! It is SO delicious and one of those dips that you can’t stop eating even though you know you need to:)

And if you have any left over (which you won’t) you can warm up a tortilla and scoop some of this dip into it and eat it like, wait for it, a beef enchilada. You can also make this for a weeknight dinner by crumbling corn chips on top and creating a beef enchilada casserole.

Enjoy and GO RAMS (aren’t we all tired of the Patriots??)

Beef Enchilada Dip

This well known Tex-Mex dish turned into a dip! Meaty and cheesy and addicting-the perfect appetizer!

Servings 6


  • 1 Tablespoon oil (olive or vegetable)
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 15oz can enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 4.5 oz cans chopped green chilies or chopped jalapeños for spicier
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. In an oven safe skillet (I like cast iron) heat oil over medium high heat. 

  3. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Drain excess fat. Scoot the beef to one side of the skillet and add the onions to the other side (this will save you dirtying another skillet or dish).  Saute the onions until translucent-about 3-5 minutes. 

  4. Once onions are translucent add the enchilada sauce, chilies, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese.  Stir to combine. 

  5. Top with remaining cheese and place into oven until bubbly and the cheese is melted-about 5 minutes.  

  6. Serve with tortilla or corn chips.
