it’s game-day.

So. Real talk. We could eat a cheese plate for every meal. Easy. But sometimes we need to switch it up! Never fear… this quick and easy dip from Damn Delicious has you covered. A crowd-pleaser for your football watching this weekend!

Damn Delicious | Beef Enchilada Dip

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Total Time 15 minutes

 Yield 6 servings
This meaty, cheesy enchilada dip comes together in just 15 minutes, and is the perfect crowd pleasing appetizer!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup roasted corn kernels
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil two 10-ounce ramekins or coat with nonstick spray. *I used these amazing Le Creuset Cocottes instead of ramekins. Highly recommend scooping a few for your kitchen!*
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in enchilada sauce, corn, chiles, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Divide the filling evenly into the ramekins and top with remaining cheeses.
  • Place into oven and bake until bubbly around the edges, about 5 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
