I am the sister that gave this recipe to Rhonda...we make this one alot when going somewhere that men will be attending as well. Men love the meat...anywho just thought I would mention this dip is also yummy warmed up in the oven, the cheese melts into it and it's all warm & fuzzy! MMMMM.....

We love Catalina dressing so I just had to try this recipe. The only thing I did differently was to cook the onions with the ground beef because I don't care much for raw onions. This was really tasty with a good taco flavor, but not overly spicy. This would be great for a party as something different from the usual.
