Two Salsa Dips

Pool’s Creamy Salsa Dip
       This is always a big hit, and it's VERY easy to make. 

1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 C salsa, slightly drained

Mix together in a bowl.  (A mixer helps, especially if the cream cheese is not softened.)  Best if mixed several hours ahead, and chilled, but it works if you make it when needed. 
Serve with tortilla chips or veggies.

Hot Salsa Dip
       This is a variation of the above. 

1 C salsa
1 block of Velveeta Cheese (small box)

Cut Velveeta into chunks and place in microwaveable bowl.  Mix in salsa.  (May adjust with more or less to taste.)  Heat until thoroughly melted, about 5-6 minutes. 
Serve with tortilla chips or veggies.
