Main dishes on game day are traditionally chicken wings and ribs, with loaded potato skins.  And while the kids go crazy for those, it is the appetizers that are some of my favourites.  It is not a Super Bowl party without nacho dip, and this year I will be making this Nacho dip Recipe for our celebrations.  If you are looking for a delicious snack idea this sour cream and cream cheese nacho dip is all you need!

 Layered Nacho Dip Recipe

The Layered Nacho Dip only takes a few minutes to make, but it is SO.GOOD.  I made up a this dip when my cousins came over at Christmas time and it disappeared before I knew it.  Luckily I was prepared with a second bowl of it to put out once the first was all gone! 

Depending on if you like things spicy or not you can modify this dip to kick it up a notch by using hot salsa or adding a bit of hot sauce to the top once you are done.  Since I knew the kids would be into it, we used medium salsa to keep it at a level that everyone could enjoy.  Here is what you need to enjoy this nacho dip at your next celebration. If you like nacho dip you may enjoy nacho cheese sauce.

What’s in Nacho Dip?

Easy Layered Nacho Dip Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Philidephia Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Miracle Whip Original Spread
  • 1 cup of Salsa
  • 2 cups of Cracker Barrel Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 2 Green Onions

How to Make Easy Layered Nacho Dip Instructions:

Step One: Mix cream cheese, sour cream, and Miracle Whip Spread together, spread into serving dish.

Step Two: Add layer of Salsa

Step Three: Top with layer of cheese, tomatoes and green onions

Step Four: Chill until ready to serve

Step Five: Serve with Nacho chips and Enjoy!

How to Reheat Nacho Dip

In the unlikely event of having leftovers, you can reheat the dip either on the stovetop or in the microwave. If using the microwave, use 30-second intervals, remembering to stir in between.

Cream Cheese Nacho Dip

Make sure you are using a shallow dish that allows you to spread out each layer.  It is never good when the top layer (with all of the cheese and other toppings) gets scraped off before you reach the creamy bottom layer. And you don’t want to miss out on getting all of the layers of the dip while eating.  The cream cheese dip for tortilla chips with the spicy salsa… it is a match made in heaven.

Items to Help You Serve Layered Nacho Dip

How Long Does Layered Nacho Dip Last?

You can make up this dip ahead of time, cover and store in the fridge so it is ready to go at game time! This dip lasts for about 4-5 days if stored in the refrigerator. Serve with nacho chips, crackers or baguette.  Looking for more dip recipes?  Why not try Beef Taco Dip, Easy Nacho Dip or even Homemade Guacamole.  Happy Eating!

Tips for Success:

  • Use a shallow tray as it allows easier dipping, especially if you have kids at your party
  • Use Scoops instead of traditional nachos as it makes it easier to dip
  • Take the Cream Cheese out an hour before you are ready to make the dip as then it becomes soft and is easier to use
