    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You won't see this anywhere, I developed this dip! Serve this at your next get together and your guests will never want to leave after they get a taste of this! Although you can serve this chilled it is much better at almost room temperature. You can prepare the ground beef mixture up to 2 days in advance and just warm in the microwave before using in the recipe. I use my guacamole Really Easy and Good Creamy Guacamole and my Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix to flavor the sour cream and the ground beef, or you can use store-bought or your own favorite recipe! We like extreme spice so I add in 2 jalapeno peppers and also dried chili flakes, if you are serving this to a crowd of people you can reduce or omit the spices completely, also you can adjust all the ingredients to taste. Servings is only estimated, if you are serving a huge crowd then I advise to make two dishes of this dip!

      This is almost exactly like the dip my mom made for us when we were growing up! Most recipes don't include the seasoned ground beef, but that is how we always had it when I was a kid. We would often just have this for supper! It is very filling. We also used to be able to pick up some of this from the deli of some grocery stores, but since homemade is always better, I haven't looked for it in the stores for a while. I think the only differences between this recipe and how we make it is that we just use cheddar instead of the Mexiblend cheese, and we didn't add any jalapeno. I like the addition of the jalapeno, though! And when I have it, I also like to garnish with a bit of fresh cilantro.
