Ham and Cheese Dip from The Food Charlatan

Ham and Cheese Dip

This Ham and Cheese Dip is SO easy to put together! And such a crowd pleaser too. Sour cream and cream cheese form a rich and creamy base, with cheddar cheese to make it ultra cheesy and chunks of ham studded throughout. Perfect for football watching!

  • 2 packages cream cheese softened
  • 8 ounces sour cream 1 cup
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 4 ounces diced green chiles (I like fire-roasted)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • black pepper fresh, to tastes
  • 1 cup smoked ham chopped into bite-size pic
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded (to top with)
  • green onions chopped (to garnish)
  • Ritz crackers or toasted baguette slices, to serve with


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese for about 1-2 minutes until fluffy. Add the sour cream and beat.
  • Add 2 cups cheddar, green chiles (don't drain), smoked paprika, and pepper.
  • Beat again, then use a spatula to fold in the ham.
  • Scrape the mixture into a pie plate or other 1-quart dish. Spread evenly.
  • Top with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, until the top is just starting to brown.
  • Sprinkle with chopped green onions if you like.
  • Serve hot with Ritz crackers and/or toasted baguette slices.
