Who said a Cheeseburger must be served on a bun?
My Super Cheesy Cheeseburger Dip may be bun-less, but it still taste like a cheeseburger!
Actually, this is really a triple cheeseburger because I used three cheeses.
Yep, one cheese is not enough.
I decided to make Cheeseburger Dip because I made tacos a couple of days ago and the meat was too peppery.
Yes, the queen of spice said the meat was too peppery!
I was trying out a new pepper and the tacos came out so spicy I couldn’t serve the meat.
I didn’t want to waste all that meat so I put it away until today.
Being that Baby Girl and I are “dipheads” I knew making dip would solve my problem.
Mayo and cream cheese calms the spiciness down tremendously and the addition of three cheeses takes the dip to another cheesy level.
I mixed all the ingredients together and baked it in a greased casserole dish at 370 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Garnish with green onions and a little minced parsley.
Don’t forget to serve with lots of Ritz crackers, bread, and tortilla chips.

Beautiful recipe and Congrats on your 1st Anniversary! That is super exciting!
Instructions say to reserve 1 tsp of seasoning blend for the vegetables – what vegetables???? I think that I missed something here?
Hello Eileen, the onions, peppers and garlic.
This recipe looks delicious, but when do you add the peppers? Cook them with the onion?
Yes C! Are you can just fold them in they will also bake in the oven.
Made this once with ground turkey and once with 90/10 ground beef. Everyone seemed to prefer the ground beef.
I did the same Rob, my husband prefers the beef as well.
Wow! When you said cheese, you meant cheese! I can’t wait to try this!
Thanks Margaret, enjoy!
Hi,is this a low carb dip?
Hello Phyllis, I am not sure. You can try one of those nutritional calculators and it may help you.
it’s low carb as long as you don’t eat it with ritz crackers or bread.
Can the creole seasoning be substituted? I can’t get it here.
Yes you can use seasoned salt. Be careful because some of them are really salty. You can also order creole seasoning from Amazon.com
Looks fabulous but I wonder if you have any problems with it separating? I often use fat free mayo in hot dips to avoid this.
Thank you Anne. I haven’t had any problems with it separating.
This recipe does have really good flavor. (I did substitute ground beef for the turkey, it is ‘cheeseburger’ dip after all). However, mine didn’t quite turn out like the picture. It looked more like ‘canned dog food casserole’. A little off putting for some people. I probably needed to add grated cheese on the top. It doesn’t say that in the recipe, but the picture looks like it has cheese added on top.
Hello Chazbro I didn’t top it with cheese I just broiled it until the cheese got a little toasty. You could top it with cheese if desired.
It is so delicious and filling…i made my own buttered toasted french bread “dippers”…its amazing….thank for a wonderful recipe…
I am glad you enjoyed it Ginger!
Dried shrimp can be found at any Asian store or Mexican grocer store. If you have a Kroger’s or specialty market they should sell them. About 3 small oz is standard. Also amazon.com sells them also. Dried shrimp gives the soup a little salty bite but you do not have to use them. Depending on what gumbo I am making sometimes I add dried shrimp and sometimes not. For your first gumbo I would say don’t add them therefore you can taste the gumbo without it to know the difference when you do have them available. Please let me know if you have any more questions. You can also add crab to the gumbo, sometimes I add crab claws, I would not use straight lump grab meat but crab in the shell.
