Cheese and Salsa Dip

Can you believe it's August already?  Does anyone know where 2015 has gone?  Crazy how fast time seems to fly.  I'm up for any ideas to slow it down!!

The third Monday in August brings us Secret Recipe Club.  Not familiar with this fun group, you can find out everything here!  I was assigned Kirstin of Loving Life.  What a great blog name.  She says, "My hubby and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in Southwest Washington, with our two amazing daughters, Kaitlynn (19) and Kristianna (16). We have been married 23 years. We have always homeschooled our girls, though both our girls are now ending that journey. Our oldest started a Running Start program her junior year and our youngest will start the same program this fall. Our oldest will also be getting married this fall.  We spend A LOT of time with working, watching soccer...and working around our house and property when we find time."  No wonder she's "Loving Life."

Kirstin had so many great recipes to choose from, it was hard to decide on one.  We were having a neighborhood picnic and I needed something to take for a side.  The veggies a plentiful in my garden, so this delicious Cheese and Salsa Dip seemed like the perfect choice. 


2 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese softened
1 12oz. jar salsa (I like thick and chunky)
2 c. shredded cheese

Combine cream cheese and shredded cheese in bowl of mixer. Begin mixing to break up cream cheese. Slowly add salsa until you get a good dipping consistency. Not too runny though, think of guacamole consistency. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips!


  1. Time flies when you have fun and good food! The dip looks very delicious, Julie.

  2. This recipe is always a huge hit. You should try my herb it and perfect with veggies. Glad you liked it

  3. Such an easy dip to throw together when life is busy! Great SRC choice!

  4. This sounds like a great dip, Julie. Sometimes the easy ones are the best!

  5. No, Julie, I can't believe that August is speeding by! Your dip though sounds yummy and easy and perfect for a Boise State Football tailgate party. I love Fall and football so I'm gonna be OK!!!! Hugs from Idaho...

  6. A simple and delicious dip for almost anything! I like thick and chunky too - Ortega is my fave.

  7. love the sound of this dip! it reminds me of the velveeta/salsa dip we always used to make in the dorms in college, only much better :)
