Quick + Easy Cream cheese and salsa dip

It’s no secret that we love chips and salsa in our house! We have red salsa, green salsa, and lots of tasty chunky versions like Peach Salsa and Pineapple Salsa.

We took a twist on our classic salsa, and mixed it with cream cheese! This new concoction is creamy, tangy, and perfect with Tortilla Chips. Cream Cheese Salsa Dip is a new fast favorite!!

Also called Mexican Salsa Dip, this is perfect for serving at parties as a quick and easy appetizer. It literally takes minutes to make, and only two ingredients (unless you make your own salsa)! Doesn’t get much better than that!

Ingredients to make homemade cream cheese salsa dip.

Tips, Variations + STORING

How to thicken. One way to keep your salsa from getting runny is to strain the salsa, removing excess liquid, before blending it with the cream cheese. If the salsa is still too runny for your liking, blend in more cream cheese. 

Spice. Easily adjust the spice level according to the salsa you choose to use. Use Homemade Salsa, or a store bought salsa, like Pace Picante Sauce (you can even use our Sweet Salsa Verde recipe too!)

Salsa can be bought in mild, medium and hot varieties. Have hot sauce or red chili flakes on the side for individual guests to add heat to their own portions.

Variations:

How to store? Whether you want to make this dip ahead of time, or store leftovers, place the dip in an airtight container in the fridge. It will keep for 3-4 days.
