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.
I can't believe I have not rated this...made it several times came back today to get it for a Poker Night we are attending tomorrow night and did not see my rating...I give this 100 stars!!! It's fantastic!!! Thanks for sharing....will definitely be making again and again....Anne
Great dip. All of my guests loved this one! Thanks for great recipe.
another super recipe from this chef..made this for my grandson's school party and all loved it..again thanks..kittencal
OMG! I made this on the weekend, It just doesn't get any better than this, thank you Kit!
If I can make this, anyone can! Brought it to a party with chips. Most people skipped the chips, piled it onto their plates and ate it with a fork!! They loved it and complimented me. I return the compliments to Kittencal and you wonderful reviewers. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I only used 1/2 of a small onion and 1 TBSP of minced garlic in the ground beef, and I chopped the jalapeno peppers into relish sized pieces and put the relish on the side instead of in the beef -- for which a few people thanked me. I used 93% fat free beef and lower fat and no fat items -- except for the guacamole because I enjoy eating way too much to screw up the guac. I mixed one cup of mild salsa with one cup of medium salsa to get the desired spiciness. One person at the party commended me for cooking the beef with taco seasoning while complaining that most cooks don't do that. I also mixed 1 TBSP of seasoning into the sour cream as the recipe suggests. Wonderful!
Kit, Yu are the greatest chef. I love your recipes. This is incredible. Watch out Paula Deen. Thanks a lot Glen Cole
