Taco Dip is an easy, flavorful dip that will disappear at every party!
Say hello to everyone’s favorite party dip.
This taco dip is a must have at my house around the holidays. It’s easy, flavorful, and oh so fun to eat after you’ve had a little to drink.
I’m not a mayo fan, so you won’t find me willingly putting mayonnaise in any of my recipes. So while my mom would probably swear by a good glug of mayo here, I’m proud to announce that this is mayo free taco dip!
How do you make taco dip?
I like to use simple ingredients. Cream cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning (you could use a packaged seasoning if homemade isn’t your style), lettuce, tomato, and cheese. That’s it! It’s kind of magical and maybe a little Midwestern.
Some people might think taco dip consists of seven or more layers of beans, guacamole, and whatnot, but this is the very basic, always awesome version that can be found in any grocery store around my house. The great thing is that it’s so easy to make that I really never have to buy it pre-made.
This Taco Dip can be customized! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Add more or less taco seasoning to suit your taste
- Add sliced black olives to the toppings
- Add sliced jalapenos to the toppings
- Use mayo instead of sour cream if you’re gross (just kidding, but really…)
- Use as a topping for actual tacos for a real treat of a meal
