Easy Nacho Dip Recipe – 5 Ingredient Nacho Dip

Dip, Dip, Dip, I love DIP!  Nacho Dip is a staple in our house, not just for special occasions, but just about any time.  I will make up this Easy Nacho Dip recipe for Hubs to snack on during the week or for us to enjoy together if we are sitting down to a movie night. With just 5 ingredients it is quick to make up and keeps well in the fridge for up to 5 days, if it lasts that long!  It is no surprise that this recipe is one of my most popular recipe posts on my blog since I originally posted it a few years ago.

You can adapt this recipe to make it as spicy as you like by adding more chili powder or using hot salsa instead of a mild or medium.  Have some green onions or bell peppers in the fridge?  Dice them up to add to the dip as well.  Here is what you need to make this Easy Nacho Dip:
