Mississippi Sin Dip is a crave-able appetizer that has earned its name. It’s gooey, cheesy, and creamy with the added salty ham that makes it so good it’s sinful. It’s carbo-loading in the best way and we are here for it!
This dip is one of our family favorites, but in all honesty we love all kinds of APPETIZERS DIPS! Be sure to check our other dips for snacking on!

Today’s recipe for the perfect appetizer is a hot cheesy dip! Hot dips are great for entertaining. They are inexpensive and don’t need a lot of effort to put out a really filling and satisfying spread. We serve this cheesy goodness at big game day parties, or when we have company over for cards or for drinks while hanging out by the pool.
You can serve this ham dip in a baking dish or cast-iron skillet but my favorite way has to be in a round loaf of bread, that’s been hollowed out. It’s cute and very practical. There’s virtually no clean-up afterward!
This recipe is from one from my mom’s church cookbook and just one of a few Southern dip recipes we love.
We always called it hot ham and cream cheese dip, but I was recently informed by a friend its real name is Mississippi Sin Dip, which sounds so much better. According to them, it’s a Mississippi creation that is sinful and delicious. Makes sense to me.
It’s a football season must at the tailgate parties at Mississippi State where they make it in foil trays then toss it on the grill to warm it up.
It’s a great tailgate dip because you can make it ahead of time and toss it on the grill, which makes it also a must-have at any gathering, holiday party, potluck, you name it.
Serve it with bread pieces that were taken from the middle, along with crackers, tortilla chips, corn chips, potato chips, veggies and whatever else you can think to dunk in there. A spoon perhaps?
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup ham, chopped (you can also use cooked sausage or bacon bits)
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 4 oz green chiles, diced (optional)
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce (adjust to taste)
- 1 round loaf of French bread
✅Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
✅In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth and fluffy.
✅Mix in the sour cream, mayonnaise, shredded cheddar cheese, ham, green onions, green chiles (if using), and hot sauce until well combined.
Cut the top off the loaf of French bread and hollow out the center to create a bread bowl.
✅Spoon the dip mixture into the hollowed bread.
✅Replace the top of the bread and wrap the entire loaf in aluminum foil.
✅Bake for 30 minutes, or until the dip is heated through and the cheese is melted.
✅Remove from the oven, carefully unwrap the foil, and stir the dip before serving to make sure it’s evenly heated.
✅Serve warm with the removed bread pieces, extra crackers, or veggie sticks for dipping
