Warm and Cheesy Creamy Pulled Pork Dip

Warm cheesy dip filled with pulled pork and corn is hearty and delicious. It's a great snack for a bbq or game day.

Want to make your leftover pulled pork into something snackable and delicious? Then this is for you! Perfect for game day and parties, but beware once you start it's hard to stop! Make sure to have plenty of tortilla chips and celery sticks on hand because everyone is going to want to dig in. Make a batch for your next tailgate or party!

      When I posted the recipe for Pulled Pork Enchilada Verde Soup I promised a super amazing dip recipe using some more leftover pulled pork.  I think this leftover pulled pork is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to have on hand.

   I actually just bought a couple more pork butts because they were on sale so cheap at the store... now I just need to talk my dad or brother into smoking them for me.  If nothing else, I can always make indoor pulled pork I suppose!

     Anyway, back to the dip.  We made soups and snacks for New Year's Eve this year.

    This was my snack contribution to the menu.  The smoky pulled pork played nicely with just a bit of heat, plenty of cheese and a bit of sweet corn.

   Our guests weren't quite sure what to think when I told them it was pulled pork dip, but I heard how addictive it was more than once as people went back to get more.  I love that!

    I found it quite addictive too.  It was great on tortilla chips and even good on pretzel rods the next day.  It would be a perfect starter for a BBQ, great for a tailgate, super for game night and just plain darn delicious when you need that perfect balance of gooey cheese, salt, sweet and heat.  (So basically all of the time!)

I originally shared this recipe in 2017.  I made a huge 12" skillet of dip, but that is a lot for most people.

So I thought I would keep that recipe here, but also share a sized down version.  If you are having a big party, make the bigger recipe in a 12" oven safe skillet like my cast iron skillet.

You could also bake the bigger batch in a 9x13" pan.  If you have a smaller group, or a bigger menu, make the smaller recipe below.

The smaller recipe is perfect for a 8-9" skillet or an 8-9" square pan.  Either way you will have a fantastic flavorful and fun hot dip!

  1. Cheesy, pork and dip...oh YES!!! Always on the lookout for a new Dip to try and this one looks Super Bowl ready or any time I feel like a yummy dip!!

    1. I know, three of our favorites right? I hope you love it!

  2. Oh this would be finger licking good. A big crowd pleaser at he Super Bowl potluck lunch here at work. I'll have to put it in a slow cooker to serve it warm here. I think it would work, don't you?

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

    1. I think it would be great in the slow cooker! You'll have to let me know how it turns out!

  3. I could live on dips. This looks sooooo good and the fact that it's made with pork is even better ;) Thanks for sharing with us at Funtastic Friday!

    1. I could too! I don't make them too often because I can't control myself! Thanks so much for hosting and stopping by!

  4. How do you not eat the whole bowl of this goodness? Yum!!

  7. This does look perfect for game day! You've definitely given me some incentive to make pulled pork, with this and that pulled pork soup! 😁

    1. It's one of my favorite ways to feed a crowd and one of my favorite leftovers to play with! I love it when my brother smokes the pork, but I have a fun idea I want to try with a braise. So many ideas, so little time!

  8. This is a great dip and perfect for the big game days! Hope you are having a great week and thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday. We look forward to seeing you again real soon!
