Mama Jones’ Chip and Veggie Dip

Chip and Veggie Dip at The Happy Housewife

My sister’s mother-in-law gave me this delicious dip recipe last week. I made a huge batch of it for the party and it was almost all gone by the end of the night. It was so good I made it again two days later!

Mama Jones’ Chip and Veggie Dip


  • 1 jar of medium picante sauce
  • 2 8-ounce blocks of cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Soften cream cheese by letting it sit out for a few hours or putting in the microwave for minute or two.
  2. Add picante sauce and stir. I used a potato masher and it worked well to get rid of the cream cheese clumps.
  3. Add mayo, garlic, and lemon juice and mix.
  4. Chill before serving

  1. Ohhh, this is so good. I make a slightly different variation ALL the time. Here is what I do:

    1 brick of cream cheese
    1 container of sour cream
    1 jar of salsa


  2. I’ve seen this recipe before but I have never seen it made with mayonaise.

  3. Ooh ~ this looks absolutely delicious… and easy! My favorite kind of recipe! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing ~ I’m definitely going to try it out!

  4. I might actually be able to get hubby to eat cream cheese if there’s salsa in it! Thanks!

  5. This sounds delish! I love trying new dips. 😀 I make a hot one with cream cheese, salsa or rotel and sausage. 😀

  6. I make something like this and it is really good. I love trying dips. They are great to serve when making food for a large group.

  7. I had something similar to this a long time ago and it was really good! Thanks for the recipe!


  9. Mmm looks simple and tasty.

  10. I love dip recipes, too. This Tasty Tuesday is yielding me lots of things to try for our monthly fellowships! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Yum! I love making dip with cream cheese, it’s so versatile. My favorite is just to mince some garlic and add a little veggie bullion into whipped cream cheese. Simple, but very tasty!

  12. This looks great! We make a similar salad dressing at our house.

    1 c mayo or 1/2 mayo 1/2 sour cream
    1/2 to 3/4 c salsa (depends on how loose you like your dressing
    lemon juice

    It’s so good for taco salads! I will definitely have to make this dip though…I love cream cheese :)Thanks for sharing!
