  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 box of Meltz Cheesy (or your favorite processed cheese product)
  • Taco seasoning to taste


  1. Brown the Beef: Start by browning the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Make sure to crumble the meat as it cooks. Once fully cooked, drain the excess grease to keep your dip less oily.
  2. Mix Ingredients: In a crockpot, combine the cooked beef, cream of mushroom soup, Worcestershire sauce, salsa, and the cheese from your box of Meltz Cheesy. Sprinkle in some taco seasoning for that extra kick. The amount can be adjusted according to how spicy you like your dip.
  3. Slow Cook to Perfection: Set your crockpot to low and let the mixture cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is completely melted and the flavors are well blended. This usually takes about 1-2 hours.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Once everything is perfectly melted and mixed, serve the dip hot. You can offer a variety of dippers like Doritos, tortilla chips, or even fresh veggies for a healthier option. Add toppings such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced olives, or extra shredded cheese for an extra touch of flavor and color.

This Taco Chip Dip is a surefire hit at parties and incredibly versatile. Feel free to customize it with ingredients like black beans, corn, or diced green chilies for a different twist. Quick to prepare and universally loved, this dip is a 5-star favorite that makes any event a little more festive. So, grab your ingredients, and let’s get dipping!
