5-Minute Mex-Tex Dip

With the big super bowl game coming up, I wanted to share one of favorite dips with you; 5-Minute Mex-Tex Dip. I also love that it literally only takes 5 minutes to whip up.  There are several variations of this and my sister-in-law, Bell, was the one that introduced this one to me.  It’s extremely simple and people who don’t even like cream cheese, love it.  Wheat thins are a perfect dipper for this too.  If you’re not into Wheat thins (lame-o), then you could also try some fritos.

Even though this is a small helping, I still used my Kitchenaid Mixer to ensure a creamy dip was created.  Depending on your preferences, you may want to save the Ro*tel juice and make it a little thinner. We love it thick though so we don’t use the juice.   Corn is a great addition to this dip, but just the Ro*tel and cream cheese are a match made in dip heaven.

Simply mix one can of drained Ro*tel with 2 packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.  If you want it spicier, then only use one package of cream cheese.

    Yummmm! I love dips…of any kind, human or food. Yeah, corny, I know. But I couldn’t resist it. There was a sign on a road close to where I live…all the sign said was “Dip” I tried like everything to get my husband to stand beside it and let me take a picture, but he never would. Sadly, the sign is now gone.

    That looks yummy and so rich! A while back when I was having some people over I wanted to serve tortilla chips and salsa but realized I only had about half a jar, so I took it and mixed in about 3-4 Tbsp. of cream cheese, some frozen corn and a can of black beans and it was so good. This reminded me of that, but with a lot more cream cheese.
