It is not only super cheesy but tasty as well. Having a party and in need of more dip recipes? Try Crab Rangoon Dip Recipe (Hot Crab Dip), and Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe which are also party favorites.

The best thing about this recipe is that you can add anything you like to it. You can make many dips with cheese using this recipe as a base.

I have added chopped onion and jalapeno to mine, but you can add chopped bell peppers, green onions, chopped bacon or chorizo, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.

As I said, this makes for a great cheese dip base for any ingredient you want, so you will never get bored. Just make a different one every time!

What Is The Best Cheese To Use?

I have found that the combination of cream cheese and cheddar is the one that works the best for me, but you can also use Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, or even American cheese or Velveeta.

It is entirely up to you and the cheese you like best. Remember, you can experiment with different cheeses until you find the one you like best.

Tips For The Best Cheese Dip

Using mayo makes the dip stay “scoopable” and doesn’t let the cheese harden again as it cools a bit. So you definitely need to add the mayo. The taste of your dip will depend on the spices and add-ons.

Onion and garlic add lots of flavors, and any other spice you add will make it better. Cheese by itself doesn’t have much flavor, so add salt, spices, chopped veggies, chopped bacon, chorizo, sun-dried tomatoes, or anything you like. Also, please do not use pre-shredded cheeses.

They have extra ingredients added that prevent them from sticking, so they don’t melt as perfectly as freshly shredded cheese does.

If you are hosting a party and are looking for delicious appetizer recipes, these are my favorites:

I don't think the title of your article matches the content lol. Just kidding, mainly because I had some doubts after reading the article.

This dip is so good. I'm a cheese fanatic, so I'll be keeping this recipe and adding different ingredients whenever I make it. I used a Serrano pepper instead of jalapeño, and it was so good. Also added garlic powder.
