How to Make Easy Cheeseburger Dip
Step One: Cook the Beef and Onions
- In a large skillet, add the burger meat, garlic salt, and black pepper and cook over medium-high heat. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, break up the large clumps.
- Add onions once the meat begins to brown, and continue to cook for another 5–6 minutes.
- Once meat is fully browned and onions are soft, remove from heat and drain the grease on a paper towel-lined plate.
Tip: You can cook it and serve it in a cast iron skillet for a rustic touch.
Step Two: Add the Tomatoes, Pickles and Worcestershire sauce
- Place the skillet back on the stovetop, reduce heat to low-medium, and add the tomatoes, dill pickles, and Worcestershire sauce, mixing thoroughly.
Step Three: Add the Cheeses
- Add the cream cheese and Velveeta cheese to the caramelized onions and beef mixture, stirring over low heat until fully melted.
- Transfer to a large bowl and serve!
Classic Cheeseburger Dip Variations and Add-ins
- Types of cheese: You’ll want to make the base of the dip with Velveeta because it’s soft, but you can add other types of shredded cheese to the top of the dip. Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack, and Colby Jack are great options.
- Bacon cheeseburger: Fry and crumble bacon to add to the top or to mix in with the other dip ingredients. Just make sure to drain the bacon grease on paper towels well before adding it.
- Types of meat: We used classic ground beef, but you can use ground turkey, chicken, or sausage.
- Spicy cheeseburger: If you like some heat, you can use tomatoes with green chiles or add in some diced jalapeños.
How Do I Store Leftover Dip?
If you have leftover dip, allow it to cool to room temperature. Spoon it into an airtight container and place it in the fridge. It should keep for several days. To reheat, you can just stick it in the microwave for about a minute, depending on how much you’re reheating.
What to Serve with Cheeseburger Dip?
This is a hearty dip, so you’ll want to serve it with sturdy dippers like pita chips, tortilla chips, Kettle-cooked potato chips, or corn chips. You can also serve it with baguette slices. Another great option is to spoon this dip over French fries or a baked potato.
Why is My Dip Too Thick?
If you’re dip is too thick for your preference, try adding some sour cream to the mixture. It will loosen it up without diluting the flavor.
Can I Make this Delicious Dip in a Crock Pot?
You can easily turn this recipe into a crockpot cheeseburger dip. Brown the beef and drain it. Then dump everything else in the crockpot and let it cook for 2-3 hours on the low setting, or until it’s melted and hot.
