Taco Beef Dip

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Erinplus3

A family favorite, I make this all the time. You can serve it as a dip with chips, or sometimes I'll make it as a main dish and put it in taco shells. This disappears every time I make it, so you might want to make a double batch.

This is a super easy recipe and so tasty!! I made it for a potluck and it went really fast. I didn't use beer, but used all water instead. Served it with tortilla chips. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks so much for sharing it! :o)
