AWESOME Taco Dip!!

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sara in MD

Pretty basic but always a hit and I'm always asked to bring this to potlucks and showers! I got this recipe from my friend Mandy and I monkeyed with it, as I do with all recipes. Since it can be fattening, I do try and use lean/light products and it tastes just as great but by all means, you can use the full fat options.

Absolutamente fabuloso!! I forgot the "light" but did use lean beef, opened a 15oz can of whole tomatos by accident and so I blended and used instead of sauce, added thinly sliced green onions to the lettuce - I can't bear "hot" so I used mild mccormick taco seasoning, mild jays salsa, mild tobasco and no jalapenos. Used kraft 4 cheese mexican shredded without any added seasoning. Followed measurements except for the 15oz can of tomatos and the added onions.It was a big hit! Everyone raved. I could have doubled the recipe and there wouldn't have been anything left. Very easy and delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first three ingredients well (I use my mix-master), spread in layer on a round serving plate and chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Fry ground beef and drain, on low heat add taco seasoning, tomato sauce, salsa and Tabasco till well mixed then cool.
  3. Spread cooled meat mixture over cream cheese mixture to cover.
  4. Sprinkle the lettuce, tomato, black olives and jalapenos evenly over the meat layer, to cover.
  5. Top it all off with the cheese and serve with tortila or nacho chips.
  6. I usually make this at night for the next day.
  7. Be prepared, it goes fast!
