Inspired by a classic diner cheeseburger with a thick layer of gooey, melted American cheese and slices of sweet and tangy dill pickle, this dip channels those toppings for an easy yet irresistible appetizer.
Why Your Dip Deserves This Upgrade
Making a cheeseburger-inspired dip is as easy as stirring some relish into any creamy cheese dip. Relish is the instant upgrade that gives your favorite cheese dip the big boost you didn't know it needed. The sweet, tangy, sour flavor balances the richness of the cheese and keeps you going back for more. You could take the whole cheeseburger angle a bit further and stir in some crumbled cooked ground beef as well.

How to Make It
Start with about 2 cups of smooth cheese dip (homemade or store-bought) and stir in about 1/2 cup of pickled relish. Double (or triple) as necessary.
With the help of just a few staple ingredients you probably have on hand already, you can turn a batch of homemade or store-bought dip into an impressive appetizer loaded with more texture and big flavor.
