Tasty Taco Dip Recipe!

I started making this dip for bbq's and parties. It became an instant hit with family and friends. Over the years I have added and changed a few ingredients to get it just right. I've even had my fiance and little girl request it as a dinner meal once every month, and they love it! I hope your family and friends enjoy this tasty, yet filling meal.

Our blogger Ren LOVES this recipe and gets upset when I don't save her some.


1LB ground beef {or any ground meat}
1 package taco seasoning
1 container sour cream
1 package cream cheese
1 can re-fried beans {optional}
1 small jar salsa {heat level as desired}
1LB shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a small pan, brown ground meat over medium flame. When your meat is all browned; turn off the burner, drain all the grease from the pan, and mix in the taco seasoning with about 3 table spoons of water. Make sure all of the meat is thoroughly coated with the seasoning and let stand.

In a deep 9x9 square baking pan, spread a layer of cream cheese evenly on the bottom. Next, layer the re-fried beans as evenly as possible. Then layer the sour cream, making sure it covers the re-fried beans in a nice layer. Add in the ground meat that you've browned and seasoned on top of the sour cream, making sure there is meat in every inch of the pan. Next you'll add the salsa on top of the meat and spread it so the salsa is evenly distributed. Finally, sprinkle on a nice layer of shredded cheese. Place in the oven and bake until the cheese on top is melted. Let sit for 5 minutes just to cool a bit and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
