Hearty Cheese Dip

I've attended many cooking schools and written cookbooks, but I've found few appetizers that people enjoy as much as this. The recipe came from my cousin. - Jill Daly, Laramie, Wyoming.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper

  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Tortilla chips

Directions

  • In a skillet, cook beef, onion, green pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, ketchup, sugar, oregano and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in cheeses. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Serve hot with chips.
For a refreshing change from tortilla chips, offer an assortment of vegetable dippers (like baby carrots, celery sticks and bell pepper strips) with Hearty Cheese Dip.

    We've lovingly renamed this cat barf dip at our house. It's not the most visually appealing dip but man oh man is it yummy! We usually don't pretend to have self control and just have it for dinner with chips and a salad.
