It is one of those dips that keeps you coming back for more once you get started. Luckily it makes a nice big batch so there is plenty to satisfy your inner snack monster plus some to share!

My sister and her coworkers have a mild obsession with this dip, so of course her excitement had me wanting to try some for myself. I am sure glad I did.

It got a 5 star review from everyone that tried it at family dinner. Now I can’t wait to make some for our football watching crew this fall.

Why We Love Cheesy Fiesta Dip

Parties are always made better with tasty snack foods. A flavorful homemade dip can take a party spread from good to great.

This dip is no exception. It would be great to munch on while watching a game, it’s perfectly portable for a tailgate, and it is fun for munching on during a backyard BBQ.

Fiesta ranch dip would even be perfect for a Cinco de Mayo gathering. Homemade chip dips really are always welcome, no matter the occasion.

Sour cream and a couple of packets of Fiesta ranch seasoning get you off to a good start. Honestly, it would probably pass as a tasty dip if you stopped there.

But why stop there when you can make it even better? Add in a can of diced green chiles, and some drained Rotel and this dip is already turning into a party.

Adding shredded cheese to dip in large mixing bowl.

Some shredded cheese, red onion and bell pepper add a punch of texture, flavor and freshness. Now stir it all together and let it sit for a bit to let the flavors meld.

That’s it! Now grab your dippers and get to snacking!

What Should You Serve With a Creamy Cold Dip?

Tortilla chips are a great option for this dips like this or Mexicali dip that have a little bit of Mexican inspired flare. Though potato chips would also be good, just be sure to pick a sturdy wavy variety as this dip is loaded with chunks.

You could also use crackers if you prefer. Ritz crackers or even pretzels would be tasty.

For a healthier option, it is great on cucumber slices. Celery would also be a nice fresh crunchy dipper.

Can this recipe be cut in half. It does sound good.

It is a big batch, but it's so good we always get it eaten up. You can definitely cut it in half. You'll just have a half can of Rotel and green chiles leftover.
