Hot Chipped Beef Dip – Just in time for New Year’s Eve

What are you putting together for your New Year’s Eve party?  Want something easy that really is good?    Here is a hot cheese dip that is sure to please most everyone!  Since October I have made this on four different occasions.   When carrying it to a party just bake it there.  It will be  better right out of the oven.  Let’s get cooking!

Jar dried beef sour cream, bell pepper, onion, cream cheese and pecans (not shown)

Toast 1 cup pecans at 325 degrees for about 10-15 min.

Toast  about 1 cup of pecans in a tablespoon of butter in the oven at 325 degrees for about 10- 15 minutes.  If you don’t want to take the time to do this just leave this step out.  I just think that it brings out the flavor of the nuts.

Cream softened cream cheese and sour cream together

The next step is to finely chop bell pepper and onion.  Use an electric food chopper in order to get these really fine.   1/3 cup of bell pepper is needed and 1/4 cup of onion.  Sorry I did not take a picture of this.  I had company  and I am sure that I was talking.

Finely chop a small jar of dried beef

Mix all ingredients except the toasted pecans.

Ready to bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees

Serve with a buttery cracker such as Townhouse.  Enjoy!

I did not take a picture after cooking.  Again talking.  My sisters and my two nephews were here and I was so excited to see them that the picture just did not happen.  Trust me it is a beautiful light brown and bubbly when you take it out of the oven.  Watch yourself after tasting this.  You’ll be  planted  by the dish eating the dip with  cracker after cracker and no one else will be able to taste it.  That’s usually what I want to do.  It is that good!

Hope you all have a Happy New Year!  And here is the recipe.

    This is a family favorite at our house. I add 1/4 cup chopped green olives to mine.

    In Virginia, we call this Hospitality Dip, and it’s as ubiquitous as camouflage. We don’t typically use green pepper, but I appreciate the
    idea. Does anyone happen to know the size of the “small jar of dried beef”? I could only find jars of 4.5 oz.

    My family has been making this for years! But we do not use pecans, and we use chips (i.e. FRITOS!!!) for dipping rather than buttery crackers.

    You have to toast your nuts before adding them to the mix or they will be soggy in the mix.
