Four Ingredient Recipes- Frito Dip ala Kari

I came up with this little recipe one night (circa 1990) when I was bored.
Most 20 year old’s go out and kick up their heels when they’re bored.

What do I do? Create a dip.

I would definitely double, triple or quadruple this for company because I created this before I had any concept of serving sizes.

Frito Dip

1) 1 C. Old El Paso Thick and Chunky mild salsa

2) 2 Tbsp. sour cream
3) 2 dashes oregano

4) 2 dashes Italian herb seasoning

Drain the salsa then mix all together (I would add a little garlic powder too) in a small saucepan until just starting to boiling.  You could also just microwave it too.

Serve with Frito’s or tortilla chips.

Now I created this when I was 20 years old so it might not be as good as how I remember it but who doesn’t like a dip recipe?

Frito Dip

  • 1 ) 1 C. Old El Paso Thick and Chunky mild salsa
  • 2 ) 2 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 3 ) 2 dashes oregano
  • 4 ) 2 dashes Italian herb seasoning
  1. Drain your salsa and mix it all together.
  2. I would add a little garlic powder to this as well.
  3. Heat on the stove until boiling or cook in the microwave for two full minutes.

  1. Hey Kari – I have another 4-ingredient fix for you: dried beef dip! I make this all the time for gatherings3 bricks cream cheese, softened2 bags (3 oz. ea.) dried beef, minced1 small onion, finely diced2-3 tbsp. Worchestershire sauce, or to tasteToss it all into a bowl and mix well (I cheat and use food processor and hand mixer) and refrigerate.You can form this into a ball and roll in additional dried beef or, for hors d'ouvres, use a cookie scoop and make little individual serving sizes, rolling each ball in dried beef before putting on a tray!:) Kari


  2. Hey Kari!! I am so glad you are still reading, my friend. :)I have made this recipe before many times and love it so much. We used to make this every Christmas Eve for appetizers and it is just so good. :)Happy Summer dear friend! Kari
