Mitch has a hit on his hands! (You too, Silly Grrl :-) ) I made this, as directed, adding 16 oz. of HOT picante sauce, as a personal preference. I also used a sprinkling of cumin and chili powder, in addition to the S & P and seasoning salt. This would be terrific for a large gathering of folks, but, we will muddle through the amount in a couple of days! Thanks for sharing, Silly Grrl!

This dip was a huge hit at my nephew's birthday party! I doubled the recipe and made one minor change. Instead of seasoning the meat as directed, I used one packet of taco seasoning for 2 lbs. of ground sirloin. I made it the day before and warmed it in a crockpot for the party. Word quickly spread..."You have to try the dip! It's so good!!!" I think that means it was a success. ;) Thanks for sharing! *Made for Fall PAC 2009**
I have made endless versions of this dip over the years, but this is the first time to stir in sour cream. It does add a creaminess to the finished dip that was welcome & new. I used Fresh Salsa for the salsa. Made for Fall '09 Pick A Chef.
I make this recipe for special occasions since it is so high in fat. I do use light sour cream & 2% shredded cheese in mine to help some. This recipe makes a lot so we usually end up eating it again the next day.
