Sloppy Joe Dip has a cream cheese base and topped with an easy sloppy joe ground beef mixture and topped off with shredded cheese and onions, baked to gooey, meaty goodness and then scooped up with corn chips. This dip is perfect for pregaming at the tailgate or munching during the basketball games in the month of March. If you are looking for a new dip that can quite honestly double as a meal, Sloppy Joes Dip is a perfect appetizer for you.
This dip is definitely one of our family's favorite game-day appetizers. My family is sloppy joe obsessed though. I am always getting requests to make sloppy joes in some format.

How to Make Sloppy Joe Dip
Begin making this sloppy joe by browning the ground beef with a half of onion, diced. Season with salt and pepper and Worcestershire sauce. When the beef is completely cooked, add the tomato soup, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, garlic powder, and apple cider vinegar to the meat.
Stir to combine and simmer to combine the flavors. Season with more salt and pepper to your taste likings. Next, start making the cream cheese base.
In a small bowl, combine softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, and shredded cheese together. In a baking dish, spread the cream cheese base all across the bottom of the pan.
Then top the cream cheese base off with the sloppy joe mixture. Spread more colby-jack cheese over the top of the meat mixture and then bake for 15-20 minutes at 350°. The cheesy, creamy mixture will come out bubbly and golden.
If you are a lover of onions, top off the baked sloppy joe dip with more diced onion. Now, when it comes to what to serve this dip with, I am all in on corn chip scoops. But you could easily use tortilla chips, crackers, and even slice baguette or bagel chips with this dip.
Tips for Making a Baked Cream Cheese Layer Dip like Sloppy Joe Dip
- Heating the cream cheese up for about 30 seconds in the microwave makes mixing it and spreading it out much easier.
- Lightly grease the sides and bottom of the baking dish before spreading the cream cheese out on the bottom of the pan.
- You can make the dips ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator. Bake them at 25° less and for 10 minutes longer if you are making the dip from cold.
