Salsa Dip is a creamy combination of two beloved condiments: salsa and sour cream and it couldn't be easier to make.
Mix the two together in a bowl and dunk away with tortilla chips or vegetables.
Have you been to a Mexican restaurant and layered a spoon of pico de Gallo on top of a chip that you've dipped in sour cream and/or guacamole?
It's such a great combination. The salsa keeps the sour cream from being too bland and the sour cream keeps the salsa from being too spicy.

Why You'll Love This Recipe
- Two ingredients and you'll have a party worthy dip
- Customize this spread with additional herbs or toppings, such as chopped cilantro or diced jalapeño or a squeeze of fresh lime.
How to Make This Recipe
- Measure sour cream and pour into a dip bowl.
- Measure salsa and pour on top of the sour cream.
- Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for an hour in the refrigerator.
- Sour Cream--swap with an equal amount of Greek yogurt or equal parts of mayonnaise and sour cream. You could also use plain cream cheese instead. However, if you swap the sour cream for cream cheese, you may need to use an immersion blender to get the two thoroughly mixed.
- Drain excess liquid from the salsa in a colander before adding to the sour cream. If you don't, your salsa dip may end up a bit watery.
- If you like a good amount of spice, choose a spicier salsa than you might otherwise for this dip. The sour cream dilutes the spice in the salsa quite a bit.
- This dip tastes best after it sits a bit so chill the dip, covered, in a refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
- Spice it up a bit more with a ½ teaspoon of cumin or ancho Chile powder or garlic powder.
You can dip so many things in salsa, think beyond the chip. Vegetables, including cucumber slices, are excellent dipped in a spicy tomato salsa. Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, really anything you might put on a veggie tray would be good dipped in salsa.
You can also dip pretzels in salsa.
If you're making a fruit salsa, you could dip pineapple slices or thinly sliced apple or slices of banana.
