Enchilada Dip | The Perfect Appetizer

I’m sharing a stupid-easy recipe for Cheesy Beef Enchilada Dip today!

If you have leftover pot roast {like I did the other day}, then this dip recipe will be done in a SNAP. So so simple to throw together and EVERYONE will love it. My two kiddos gobbled this up like crazy and then my husband finished the leftovers. WINWIN, ya’lls. If you’re looking for an amazing appetizer for New Year’s Eve, then this is your ticket.

My husband got a little carried away with scooping up all the cheese. He also went snooping for the larger beef pieces. Can’t blame him for trying because I did the same thing too. Oops. #sorry #notsorry

Hot and cheesy Mexican flavored anything makes me weak in the knees. A good problem to have, folks. So try this Enchilada Dip soon! It’s that good.

Main Ingredients Needed

You only need 4 ingredients (plus tortilla chips) to make this amazing Beef Enchilada Dip! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Leftover Pot Roast – one specifically without gravy! You can use any type of shredded beef or even chicken if you wanted to.
  • Red Enchilada Sauce – use the store-bought stuff or use my homemade enchilada sauce.
  • Cheddar Cheese – can you tell how much cheese I put on top of this dip? It’s egregious but so worth it.
  • Cilantro – this is optional but makes the presentation so nice looking.
  • Tortilla Chips – and of course, you’re going to need a way to devour this dip and that’s by using tortilla chips as edible spoons.
