Skillet Enchilada Dip

Mexican dip-smI DO love me some cast iron cookin’. This is a family-favorite dip that’s been a hit every place it’s been – I love seeing folks digging in and enjoying it.  You can also prepare this dip in a baking dish if you don’t happen to own a cast iron skillet.  I especially like the cast iron skillet for taking this dip to tailgating events since it can slide right on to the grill for re-heating. 

1 lb. Hildebrand Farms lean ground beef
10 oz. red enchilada sauce
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup roasted corn kernels
14 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 oz. fire-roasted green chilies
1 package Rabbit Creek Mexican Dip Mix, .65 oz.
¼ – ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cups shredded Alma Creamery Montery Jack cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 scallions, chopped, for garnish
½ cup crushed tortilla chips, for garnish

Oven Method

In a cast iron skillet over medium high heat, cook ground beef until cooked throughout and all pink is gone; drain fats.

Stir in enchilada sauce, cream cheese, corn kernels, black beans, green chilies, dip mix, red pepper flakes, and 1 cup of cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper. Top mixture with remaining cup of cheese.

Bake, uncovered, in preheated 375 degree F. oven for 15-20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly throughout.

Remove from oven and garnish with scallions and crushed tortilla chips.

Serve with additional tortilla chips or crackers, for dipping.

Stove-Top Method

Cook over medium heat until mixture is hot throughout; garnish with remaining cup of cheese, scallions and crushed tortilla chips.

Serve with additional tortilla chips or crackers, for dipping.
