    I wish I could make this for my tea party this weekend. I would break all the rules of afternoon tea. Instead I will wait and make it for my birthday Mexican Fiesta Party.

    I made this, but thought it was a bit bland. Made it a 2nd time and added a packet of taco seasoning to the meat first. Also, used a little less enchilada sauce so it wasn’t so soupy. Great dip though! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  18. 19

    Can you make this baked in the oven somehow?

  19. 20

    Bland? You’ve gotten to be kidding!! Just made this and it’s absolutely delicious!! Thank you for the excellent recipe, Robyn!!

  20. 21

    uh oh! Boy, does this sound fabulous! Never occurred to me to make a dip with enchilada sauce, thank you, I know this will be a favorite!

    This is sooooo good! I was just thinking I could get the sauce, shredded meat, cheese and tortilla chips at the neighborhood Mexican Take Out if I run into a time crunch and I won’t have to panic the next time I need something to take to an “emergency party”. What a great idea this is and so hot and gooey!

    I took the advice of another reviewer and added a little taco seasoning because I used ground turkey which can be a little bland. I didn’t use the whole pkg., just about 3 teaspoons. I also found it to be a bit too soupy but also salty. It does not seem salty on its own, but once you add the cheese and corn chips, it was just too much salt for me. So I took the leftovers (about 2 cups) and added two idaho potatoes diced small, another teaspoon of taco seasoning (my own salt-free homemade, this time) and a couple tablespoons minced bell pepper and let it cook until the potatoes were tender. Bingo! It was so tasty I plan to make it again this way. Glad I found this recipe!

    Just made this. It is amazing!! Perfect!

    These look so delicious that you have my mouth watering right now! YUM! I would make it without the onions, but goodness gracious so yum looking! Beautiful pictures, too!

    I love enchilada anything! Yum! :-)

    I made this a few days ago. It came out a bit soupy for me too, but I figured it’s because I only used 1 lb of ground beef but 2 cans of sauce (a little more than 2 cups). Hubby said it tasted fantastic anyways. The reheated leftovers weren’t soupy at all. He ate it 3 days in a row and asked me to make more.

  28. 29

    I made this and it came out soupy. What could I have done to avoid that?

      Hi Douglas,
      Sorry it was a bit soupy for ya. I’ve gotten emails from those who have had similar results using a canned enchilada sauce and then others who haven’t had problems at all. I think it may have something to do with the different varieties. I think next time, cut back on the enchilada sauce, especially if you are using canned, and see how that does for you. Let me know!

    I made this for the Superbowl and it was a smash hit. I made 2 changes. First I bought Pace enchilada sauce. Second I made 2 different ones. The first with beef and the second one with deer meat. Now I don’t eat meat so I can’t speak personally but my fiance and his family does. They LOVED the one with the deer meat more than beef but both were an absolute hit.

    I’d love to make this for a potluck at work. Do you think if I browned the meat + onions and then added that with everything else to a crockpot on low or warm that it would turn out ok? It has to stay warm for most of the day.

  32. 34

    I made this with chicken & green chili enchilada sauce. I browned the chicken on both sides. Removed from pan, cut into small pieces, put it back in the pan with onions& garlic. When it was done I used a hand blender to chop the chicken pieces smaller. I then added the enchilada sauce & cheese. Very good!

  33. 35

    Oh, this sounds soooo good! I can’t wait to make it:)
    Your pics are awesome
