Mississippi Sin Dip

Another fabulous dip made with cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, ham, green onion, jalapenos and green chilies.

Mississippi Sin Dip

As far as I know, this Mississippi Sin Dip recipe got its start just being called plain ole Mississippi Sin because of it's cheesy richness, but along the way, it apparently became a tailgate favorite of the fans of Mississippi State Bulldogs and has since become known as Mississippi State Sin. I notice a few other states seem to have picked it up over time and renamed it as their own, but as far as I know it originated right here in some kitchen in my home state. Far as I know, this is pretty true to the original recipe with the exception of jalapenos, which I added.

If you've been hanging around here any length of time you already know that I love to make dips, lots of dips. To me they are the perfect snack for game day, for parties, for movie watching, or for any gathering really. Whatever you call this one, it's another great cheesy dip to add to your collection of snack dips!  Makes a very nice presentation when baked inside of a bread bowl, but you can just put it into a plain ole baking dish too. 

Here's how to make it.

Recipe: Mississippi Sin Dip

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 1 hour | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

  • 1 (approx. 1 pound) round loaf of crusty bread, optional
  • 1 (8 ounce) block of cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups of sour cream
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup of chopped ham or tasso
  • 1/3 cup of sliced green onion
  • 1 (4 ounce)can of green chilies, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped pickled jalapenos
  • Couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. To serve in a bread bowl, cut the very top off of the bread and hollow out, leaving about a 1-inch shell and reserving the bread from both the top and the inside. Set the top aside and cut the inside bread into cubes or tear into chunks, if desired, to use for dipping, or reserve for another use.

Cream the cream cheese and sour cream together until well blended. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix in well. Place enough aluminum foil to wrap around the bread on a baking sheet and pour the cheese mixture into the bread bowl, or transfer mixture into a baking dish. Return the top piece of bread on top and wrap the loaf completely in the foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour. Serve hot!

Can also simply bake in a baking dish if desired. Serve with the reserved bread, an assortment of vegetables, crackers, tortilla chips or corn chips.

Cook's Notes: One of our Facebook readers took the leftover bread from inside the bread bowl, tore it into big pieces, and then tossed it with olive oil, garlic powder, dried parsley, red pepper flakes and sea salt, and baked that into croutons while the dip was baking. Fantastic idea Jaclyn, thanks!

Tailgate version: Triple and prepare in a disposable aluminum pan instead of the bread bowl. Cover with aluminum foil. Place the pan on a hot grill and heat until bubbly.

For the Slow Cooker: Place all of the ingredients (except for the bread) in the crockpot, turn it on high and let it go for about 30 minutes or until everything is melted, stirring it several times. Reduce to low or warm to hold it, stirring occasionally.

Variations: Instead of ham, substitute 1 can of deviled ham, 1/3 cup of chopped, dried beef, or 1 small, well drained can of shrimp or crab, cooked crawfish or cooked sausage.

Hissy Fit Dip: Substitute breakfast sausage with sage (like Jimmy Deen) for the ham. Omit green chilies and jalapeno; add 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 2 teaspoons dried minced onion, 2 teaspoons dried parsley and 1/4 teaspoon curry powder (optional).

  1. I just love visiting your website! You are one fantastic cook!!!! Love all your recipes and want to try them all!!!!

  2. That's my kind of sin! :) I'm not into football, but I could certainly make this for my New England Patriot fans up here in MA! Thanks for another great recipe! Have a great weekend Mary!

  3. I think I just shorted out my keyboard drooling over this recipe. The Hubster will fall in love with me all over again when I make this for him. He's a huge football fan. Doesn't matter who's playing he has to watch. Football season around here is the time when I get to watch all the chick-flicks on the other television without interruption or smart remarks. ;-)

  4. We at the Honduras Gumbo are glad you are Cajun. Madame Gumbeaux loves your recipes. We don't have much to cook now as we cook for little Hondurans in the hills but thanks for the wonderful reads. One day I may cook for me and my krewe again.

  5. Oh my gosh that looks good. Who needs chips? -hand me a spoon.

  6. Can't go wrong with those ingredients, but no Slap Ya Mama - what's with that? :-)

  7. oh yes... so many varying recipes like this floating around - glad to have the original.... just great Mary

  8. I want it right now, can't wait until game time! I can see where I'll be coming for new recipes this football season! YUM!!!

  9. Oh my, that sounds like sin in any state, yum!!

Well let's see, I believe my grands and Iknow what we will be having tomorrow for the game time activites...not watching the ball game, just eating the cheese goodness. Thanks, have a super of your biggest fans, The Olde Bagg

  11. Wow! I'm certainly going to be giving this a try as football season gears up. Love that it incorporates ham into the dip. That's not something you see too often and I'm loving the thoughts of it. Thanks for another great recipe!

  12. Love it! I make dip every football Saturday. My husband truly believes that no football game is complete without dip...and I inable I take a lot of convincing!

    I'm saving this one...I love all of your dips, but this one is getting top billing on our next football Saturday at home.

  13. I'm not a big football fan, but it is on all the time here. So, I might just need this to keep me amused, don't you think?!

  14. I've bookmarked this sinful sounding dip guys and gals will love this!

  15. With a name like that, how could it not be good. If this dip is a sin, then I'm no saint!

  16. This is a recipe that will get some use around here this fall. It sounds fabulous. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  17. This is one of my very favorite dips - kind of forgot about it but you reminded me to try it this football season. Loved visiting your blog!

  18. Heaven. What is better than football and cheese?

  19. mmm mmm good.....I love football season, the weather is cooling, and it's fall..I am not necessarily
    a football fan..but DH is...and he could get into this....thanks Mary..thank you for the info about the fabric background for the built in..that sounds better to me than did she afix
    the paper? Glue?

  20. Sounds great!! I make a similar dish with pork sausage. I need to make it for the game this weekend.

  21. This is the best stuff. Have had it made with cooked pork sausage and another version (called TN Sin) made with a pound of crumbled bacon. Cheese and pork products, a marriage made in heaven.

  22. I have been making this dip forever - never knew the name - just knew it was great. If you want to try something good - make it with one of those Hawaiian breads - the big round one - cut the top off, scoop the bread out - be sure to cube the bread and use for dipping. Something about that slightly sweet bread and this dip. Mmmm Mmmm.

  23. Oh my gosh! I made this for the Super Bowl and it is just delicious! I almost made your Cheddar Bacon dip again but I have served that at the last 2 get togethers so I thought I'd try something new. Now I have another favorite dip to serve! Thanks Mary! :)

  24. I just made this dip for the Super Bowl and it is just delicious! I almost made your Cheddar Bacon Dip but decided to change it up a bit, I've served that at our last two get togethers. So glad I did! Now I have another favorite dip! Thanks Mary! :)

  25. My friend gave me the recipe for Apache bread. The only difference is that you use the Hawaiian bread. I usually make it for our Christmas get together. Everybody stands around waiting for it to come out of the oven....delicious!

  26. Made this yesterday as an experiment, but used lowfat sour cream and cream cheese to appease my waistline. And used leftover ham salad. I adored it uncooked - wonderful! and noticed online that some folks don't cook it, just serve it cold. Cooked it came out a bit too greasy for me. cooking it in the bread would cure that, right? Or it may have been the mayo in the salad. Going to love making this cold for a party!

    1. I'm not sure, it could be the mayonnaise in the ham salad I guess, but there is a picture in the post of it on a scoop and it should look like that, although that is with the full fat products. I can't recall ever making this one with the lower fat products so don't know if that could have had any separation causing it to seem greasy or watery. The bread would help with the fats but I'm glad you enjoyed it cold too!
