Everyone knows that no list of food for football is complete without an ooey-gooey cheesy dip. This spicy and hearty cheeseburger dip recipe certainly ticks that box! Serve it at your next party, summer cookout, or Super Bowl event, and watch it disappear in an instant. No one can resist the mouthwatering combination of Velveeta, mozzarella cheese, ground beef, diced tomatoes, and green chiles. When combined, this dip tastes like a gooey cheeseburger. It sounds weird, but trust me when I say this party dip tastes delicious!

Now, many recipes for cheeseburger dip use a slow cooker. But we’re keeping things super simple today (sorry crock pot) and just microwaving the ingredients together. Yep, once you cook the beef, it takes just 5 minutes to combine the ingredients and melt that ooey-gooey cheese in the microwave. You’ll be serving it alongside crackers and veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot sticks in under 30 minutes. That’s my kind of game-day snack!

Thanks to Velveeta for partnering with me on this post and helping me bring you the video in the recipe card below. I hope you enjoy it! P.S. Another one of my favorite Velveeta recipes is my Velveeta bowtie pasta salad.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Velveeta Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product
  • Rotel diced tomato with green chiles
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Ground beef
  • Green onion

How to Make Cheeseburger Dip

Mix all ingredients together, except onions, in a microwaveable bowl.

Heat in the microwave, on high, for 5 minutes or until the Velveeta cheese is melted. Stir after 3 minutes. Once done, stir in the chopped green onion.

Serve your dip with crackers, potato chips, or assorted cut-up fresh vegetables.


Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. But trust me when I say it won’t last that long!

Recipe Notes

  • Here are some variations to make this cheeseburger dip recipe your own:
    • Garnish with a chopped dill pickle or crispy fried onions.
    • Add cooked bacon crumbles to make bacon cheeseburger dip. I mean, who can say no to crumbled bacon?
    • Substitute the ground beef for ground turkey.
    • Add more seasoning when you cook the ground beef. For example, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
    • Serve it like a cheeseburger with shredded lettuce on top. Go one step further and add condiments like ketchup and yellow mustard.
    • Substitute the mozzarella cheese or combine it with your favorite type of shredded cheese, like Monterey Jack cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, or a Mexican cheese blend.
    • If you’d prefer no spice, omit the green chiles and simply use a diced tomato can only.
  • You can also serve your dip with baguette slices, potato chips for that delicious salty crunch, pita chips, waffle fries, or tortilla chips.
