Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.


  • 1 Pound ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1 jar (15 to 16 ounces) cheese dip with salsa (salsa con queso) or other cheese dip
  • 1/2 Cup thick-and-chunky mild or medium salsa
  • Blue, yellow and/or white corn tortilla chips (optional)
  • Diced red bell pepper, thinly sliced green onions, sliced ripe olives (optional)


Heat nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.

Add ground beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

Add cheese dip and salsa; cook and stir about 3 minutes or until mixture is heated through.

Pour beef mixture into shallow serving dish. 

Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.

Garnish with toppings, if desired.
