Taco Platter Dip

Recipe by jorgydee

Found this recipe in a newspaper. Changed a few things, made it and it was a hit. You may want to change the heat in this dip by using mild or hot taco sauce or adding or omitting the green chiles.

This was very yummy! Hubby used an electric mixer to blend the cream cheese and salad dressing. We used a rectangle baking pan. Taco sauce was good for both of us - not too spicy, Next time I'll try and not cut up the tomatoes ahead of time. We might use sour cream instead of cream cheese/salad dressing next time.
