Cheesy Hamburger Rice Dip
Hamburger and Rice Dip is made in a cast-iron skillet. This dip is all cooked on the stovetop; no need to turn on the oven. It’s a hot, cheesy dip that is SO GOOD on tortilla chips or used as a bread dip. It is the perfect appetizer for game days, gatherings, or just to have on hand for a snack. The Mexican rice and taco seasoning added to the mix gives it just a little twist to a classic cheesy hamburger dip.

How to Make Cheesy Rice Dip
You need a large skillet and the ingredients listed to make this delicious dip. To get started, brown the ground beef over medium heat and drain any grease from the meat. Next, add the taco seasoning, rice, water, diced tomatoes, and oil. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 7 minutes.
After simmering for seven minutes, add the cheese and melt it completely. This should take about five minutes or so. Serve warm with tortilla chips.
Can I Make this Dip in a Slow Cooker?
Yes! You can definitely make this in a slow cooker. First, brown and drain the hamburger. Next, add in the browned hamburger and all the other ingredients that go into the dip into your slow cooker. Then, cook on low for 1-2 hours. Finally, change the setting to warm, making sure to stir it once in a while if you are not serving it right away.
