Taco Dip

I really enjoy anything tacos, nachos, burritos…Recently at a bridal shower, I sampled a taco dip served with tortilla chips, and I was hooked. This dip not only is yummy and colorful, but very versatile as well, because you can include the things you like, and omit the ingredients you don’t. You can also serve it on a platter or in individual servings.

Here is what you need: modified from Taste of Home
8 ounces cream cheese (I used light)
8 ounces sour cream (I used light)
1 pound ground beef
1 Tablespoon taco seasoning
8 ounces tomato sauce
8 ounces Mexican cheese blend
3-4 cups lettuce, shredded
2-4 tomatoes, diced
chopped onion (optional
chopped green pepper (optional)
taco sauce (optional)
Tortilla chips

Mix cream cheese, sour cream, and the original recipe includes 3/4 cup mayonnaise, which I omitted because my husband doesn’t like mayonnaise.

Spread in a 9×13 dish and chill for an hour. If you prefer, single size servings are a pretty option.

Brown your ground beef, drain, then add taco seasoning and tomato sauce, and cook an additional 5 minutes.

Let cool, and then spread over the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate again.

When you are ready to serve, top with cheese, lettuce and tomato (and if you like, green pepper, onion and taco sauce).

Serve with tortilla chips.

    I am saving this as a great lunch for the Christmas season when this Nana is up to eyeballs with our kids families and grandkids. I would rather spend time with them than be in the kitchen! They would all love this!
