“A true Indigo! original, this is a creamy dip we started enjoying in our sheltered dorm days, when the going was tough and the cooking implements even tougher. Now that I'm finally out in the real world with a real kitchen (yipppeeeee!) I like making it when I need something salty and spicy to munch on... Great with tortilla chips, hot or cold! Have a "Special" Salsa Party by invite only! :)”
2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa (I always try to find the hottest, chunkiest kind!)
  • 8 ounces bar cream cheese, room temperature, to taste (can use light)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, to taste
  • 1 jalapenos (optional) or 1 habanero, chopped (optional)


  1. Mix salsa and cream cheese (and peppers, if using) until desired consistency.
  2. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Microwave until cheese has melted. You may either mix it in to the salsa and cream cheese, or just keep in on top to dip through.
  4. You can also stick this in the fridge and chill, then sprinkle with cheese, for a cool yet spicy alternative!
