Friends, I’m over at RecipeGirl’s sharing a delicious Superbowl Party Menu, plus today, a party-favorite Cheesy Enchilada Dip recipe perfect for Game Day!

Cheesy Enchilada Dip

I love it when I have all the ingredients for a recipe stocked in my kitchen. Today’s recipe is one that is easy to make for last minute guests, to feed a bunch of kids, it makes a quick appetizer (30 minutes) when you get a last-minute invite, or the perfect dip or even main dish for a Mexican Feast or Superbowl party.

Versatility of the dip:

-Make with ground beef or turkey, or even Vegetarian (leave out the meat).

-Serve with chips.

-Serve as the main dish meat for tacos, taco salad, burritos, or enchiladas.

-Serve in wraps.

-Serve as a dip with mixed fresh vegetables.

-Make quesadillas with the leftovers.

The list goes on and on.

We’re a enchilada family (yummy recipes below), so bringing our favorite ingredients together in a cheesy dip is perfect for football season!

Secret: Add whole olives.

And, the secret to a good Cheesey Enchilada Dip? In my opinion, whole olives!

Whole olives remind me as a kid of many taco feasts out camping with our family friends (my mom, Clara, and Avis were the best cooks in southern Oregon!), or a weekend picnic or potluck.

For me, it’s the ultimate wintertime, party dip!

What kind of party would you make this dip for?
