Ingredients

  • 1 - 4 oz. Package Cream Cheese, Regular or Light Version
  • 1 Cup Sour cream
  • 1 - 16 oz. package of Kraft Deli Deluxe American Cheese Slices- 2% milk
  • 1 Cup Salsa (use your favorite, but we love Herdez - it's also very low in carbs)
  • 1 Small can Green chiles (mild, 4.5 oz)
  • 1/2 to 1 Teaspoon Thick It Up™ Low Carb Thickener (Optional, if a thicker dip is desired)

Directions

In large, microwave safe bowl, place cream cheese, and cheese slices, torn in half.
Heat on high for 1 or 2 minutes until cheeses are melted. (May also be melted in saucepan over low, if desired.) Remove and stir with spoon. Stir in sour cream, salsa and green chilis. Stir in Thick it Up™ if using. Serve with homemade low carb corn chip recipe.


Cook's tip: Choose a serving bowl that's microwave safe so you can fix and serve in the same warm bowl. It makes clean-up a snap, especially if you lick the spoon.
