Hot Virginia Dip

Hot Virginia Dip

The holiday season is just around the corner, and that means office parties and potlucks galore. Sometimes it’s hard to find a unique dish to bring, but this Hot Virginia Dip usually does the trick!

One of my go-to potluck recipes is Taco Dip, but there are times that someone else has already claimed a similar dip, so this is my backup. 


I had never had a dip like this until I was living with my aunt and uncle my sophomore year in college when I transferred to UCF (Go Knights!). She calls it Hot Virginia Dip, and it is fantastic!

Seriously, I could eat the entire pan in one sitting. I don’t make it too often because I know I will eat it all and I don’t need to. It’s cheesy and creamy and salty and oh so good.

It’s super easy to make, just mix a few things together, bake, and enjoy. The only ingredient I had a hard time finding at first was the dried beef. It is usually near the canned meats on the top shelf. It comes in a small glass container with a blue lid on it.


Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 350F then combine all of the ingredients, except the crackers, in a medium mixing bowl. Don’t forget to mince the dried beef before adding it to the bowl.

Pour the dip into an 8×8 baking dish and level out as best as possible.

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until it is bubbly. You can let it go a few more minutes if you want it to brown on top, but I don’t like letting it go that long.

  1. (sucks in her breath, eyebrows shooting up in surprise as jaw drops) this has chipped beef in it??? And it’s HOT??? Oooh, gonna have to try this – my youngest has recently discovered the joys of one of my late father’s FAVORITE breakfast, Creamed Dried Beef On Toast, which she now asks me to make every other day (it’s one of my faves, too) even though it’s not something I keep on hand in the house! So she and I will gladly eat this all up!!!
