Beefy Enchilada Skillet Dip

Beefy Enchilada Skillet Dip

I’m calling this a dip, because that’s technically what it is, but that’s not how I ate 90% of the leftovers. Most of you will probably make this Beefy Enchilada Skillet Dip for a party or a game day get together and likely won’t have any leftovers (because it’s delicious), but I just made it by my lonesome, so I had quite a bit. Luckily I liked this so much that I ate it for every meal straight until it was gone. At first I ate it dip-style as a snack, scooping it up with some baked Tostitos like a normal person. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about it…it was that good. When mealtime came around I decided to just put a double serving (or sometimes triple if I had the points…) in a bowl, sprinkle a few baked Tostitos on top for a little crunch and eat it with a spoon. I totally recommend it if you do end up with some leftovers. Don’t worry about the fact that it’s technically a dip – be a rebel!

This Beefy Enchilada Skillet Dip is a beefy, cheesy, zesty dip that is sure to be a huge crowd pleaser and a welcome addition to any appetizer spread or football party. It’s super easy to make and definitely doesn’t taste light. Just whip it up and watch it disappear!

Beefy Enchilada Skillet Dip

Yield: 12 (1/3 cup) servings


  • 1 ½ lbs raw 95% lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups canned enchilada sauce
  • 6 oz 50% reduced fat Pepper Jack cheese (I used Cabot), shredded


  1. Heat the beef in a large skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a slotted spoon or spatula as it browns. When the beef is cooked, add the diced onion and garlic and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened.
  2. Add the enchilada sauce and stir to coat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top. Cover the pan with a lid and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes until the cheese is melted and the dip is heated through.
