Creamy Salsa Dip is not much of a looker but it’s delicious and perfect for those days you’re short on time but don’t want to show up to a gathering empty handed.

Or, perfect for those nights you want a snack that’s something slightly more than your typical chips & dip or chips and salsa.

I made this the other night to take its picture but didn’t have anywhere to go so I ate it by itself, for dinner =)

Ingredients you’ll need to make Creamy Salsa Dip

You only need two ingredients – it’s that easy!

Cream Cheese – I use full fat cream cheese, though low fat will work. Soften it to room temperature so it mixes smoothly. You can sub sour cream or even Greek yogurt if you prefer.

Salsa – I highly recommend making homemade salsa (it’s super easy in the blender!) but your favorite jarred sauce will work as well and there are some really good ones. It’s best to use a thicker, chunky salsa instead of a very liquidy one.

How to make Two Ingredient Creamy Salsa Dip

You think you can handle these directions? It’s a complicated one. Lol

STEP ONE: Add the softened cream cheese and chunky salsa to a medium mixing bowl and with a hand mixer, mix until fully combined. That’s it! Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy!

What to serve with easy salsa dip

  • Tortilla chips – I like to make them myself in the air fryer or oven or Scoops are great for getting a lot of dip.
  • Fresh veggies – sliced peppers, cucumber slices, celery, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.
  • Crackers – Sun Chips, Triscuits, or similar.
  • Squash Chips

Additional Toppings?

If you want to take your dip a little further than two ingredients, you can add black beans or shredded cheese to the top, or mix them in.

How to store leftovers

Store leftover salsa dip covered in the fridge for up to a week.
