Baked Tex-Mex Pimiento Cheese Dip Recipe: this dip is so good I couldn’t quit eating it even before it was baked!

It has the traditional Pimiento Cheese flavors. I often use this dip recipe on a Nacho Bar. It goes perfectly.

Baked Tex-Mex Pimiento Cheese Dip Recipe is chock full of pimientos, cilantro, jalapenos and more. This is one tasty dip!

I can make a meal on appetizers. They boys and I often snack on José Olé with our favorite dips.

For this dip recipe, I minced one jalapeno and added red pepper and paprika which really brings the heat to this Baked Tex-Mex Pimiento Cheese Dip Recipe. Adjust to your taste. We like heat. I then added chopped fresh cilantro. That’s the signature Tex-Mex flavor. Cilantro brightens this dip and it’s not the same without it. Of course, fresh is best, but use dried if you don’t have or can’t find fresh cilantro.

I wanted to serve this dip hot, but as I stated before it’s delicious cold or even room temperature.

  1. Cream cheese always mixes into other ingredients best if it’s at room temperature.
  2. Drain the pimientos well, otherwise the dip will be too watery.
  3. Add as much or little cilantro as you like.
  4. Likewise, adjust the pepper and jalapeno amounts to the heat level you’re comfortable with.

I keep José Olé Mexican Snacks on hand for the boys after school snacks at all times. The Nacho Bites and Mini Tacos are their favorites. They like to use them to dip in the recipe. I couldn’t agree more. The Mini Tacos are great on their own as is the dip but together (whoa!) you’ll be tempted to make a meal on it!

The boys love the different variations of flavors and I love that it saves me time and money by not having to stop for a treat on the way home. Made with real meat and cheese, José Olé snacks provide the protein-packed fuel to keep your kids on the move no matter the occasion. Mom, this is a snack you can feel good about giving your kids.
