In my family, for formal celebrations, I always prepare baked ham. We almost always have leftovers, and for a few days we prepare ham sandwiches. Today, I’ve prepared a fun and practical recipe to help you put your baked ham leftovers to good use. This ham dip is easy to make and perfect for any gathering; serve it with tortillas or tortilla chips. My only advice would be to check how salty the ham is: if it’s saltier than normal, use salt-free tortillas, of fry the tortillas at home and don’t season them with salt.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Serrano chili pepper, washed, deveined & finely chopped
  • 2 cups ham, finely chopped
  • 4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 10 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions

  • 1
    Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and serrano pepper, and cook until the onion is tender and translucent.
  • 2
    Put the onion in a deep, microwave-safe container. Add the ham, cream cheese, mustard, mayonnaise, green onion and 2/3 of the cheese. Stir well. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.

    Serve with crispy tortilla chips.

  • To prepare your own totopos, or crispy tortillas chips, leave the tortillas outside the refrigerator on a baking sheet overnight so they dry out. Cut them in the desired size and fry them in super hot oil until golden brown.
