Beef and Mushroom Cream Cheese Dip

Desperation is the mother of invention.   Hubby really, really wanted some kind of dip to watch with the game, we had no Velveeta, and I was so not going to the grocery.   So, making do with what we have, I put together this man-friendly dip out of cream cheese, beef, mushrooms, and rotel.  The end result was tasty and hit the spot for game day fare.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 6 oz. diced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 8 oz. block of neufchatel cheese
  • 1 can rotel, drained


  1. Brown the ground beef.
  2. Drain and rinse.
  3. Use a little of the reserved grease to saute the mushrooms until soft.
  4. Add the beef back.
  5. Add the rotel and cheese.
  6. Stir until the cheese is melty and everything is well incorporated.
  7. Remove to large bowl.
