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?

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

  1. Drain your salsa and mix all together.
  2. I would a little garlic powder to this as well.
  3. Heat on the stove until boiling or cook in microwave for two full minutes.


I love to write about my family, John Hughes, tacos and Bruce Hornsby. Not necessarily in that order.

    Hey Kari – I have another 4-ingredient fix for you: dried beef dip! I make this all the time for gatherings

    3 bricks cream cheese, softened
    2 bags (3 oz. ea.) dried beef, minced
    1 small onion, finely diced
    2-3 tbsp. Worchestershire sauce, or to taste

    Toss 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!

    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!
