  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chip beef or ham, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh green onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Gather all of your ingredients.

  2. Soften the cream cheese in a small bowl or baking dish so you can dip your chips or crackers with ease in the softened cream cheese. I like to allow the cream cheese to sit at room temperature as I prepare the other ingredients. I have also warmed it in the microwave at 30 second intervals, if i am a little short on time.

  3. Rinse the beef to remove any excess salt/sodium. Cut or chop the beef into thin slices so it can be more easily stirred into the dip mixture and stay on the chip or cracker when eaten.

  4. Add the sour cream. The sour cream makes the dip more soft and easy to work with, besides adding a little tart taste to the flavors in the dip.

  5. Mix the ingredients in the bowl using a hand mixer, or by hand, if preferred. Make sure it has a creamy texture since it will be used as a tasty dip. You can heat it in your microwave oven, at 30 second intervals, if you feel that will help soften the mixture.

  6. Now add the beef that's been cut. Continue to stir until fully blended with the sour cream and cream cheese mixture.

  7. Once the beef is blended in the dip mixture, you'll top things off with the cut-up green onions. The onions are always added to our recipe, but others will often add things like pecans, green peppers, black pepper spice, garlic powder, or other favorites to add a unique flavor to this dip. Serve with Fritos or your favorite crackers.

  8. Be sure to store this appetizer in the fridge until it's ready to be served, so it stays as fresh as possible. It may thicken up a bit, but should soften up some once left on the counter for a few minutes at room temperature.

  9. We warm it up in the microwave to serve it hot with Frito chips!
