Taco Dip Ingredients

The creamy layer of this taco dip recipe is a mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning (option: add in a tablespoon of lime juice). Use homemade seasoning or a store bought packet. You can substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream if you’d like.

Mix the creamy layer using a hand mixer if you have one, this makes the dip fluffier and easier to scoop.

The taco dip toppings can be anything and everything you put on your usual ground beef tacos.

Try shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, green or red onions, cilantro, black olives, pico de Gallo, jalapenos, black beans, or avocado or dollops of guacamole.

Serve taco dip with tortilla chips, baked tortillas, pita bread, crackers, or even fresh vegetables!

Pro Dip Tips

  • Soften cream cheese before blending (this can be done in the microwave at 60% power for about 40 seconds or until soft).
  • Make ahead and chill to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Reduced fat products do work well in this recipe.
  • Make individual servings in mini bowls or cups (with a spoon if needed).
  • To make sure your cream cheese is perfectly dippable and scoopable beat the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. This makes a softer creamy layer.

A hand mixer works perfectly with both cold dips (like Bacon Cheddar Dip) or hot dips like our favorite Jalapeno Popper Dip.

This taco dip recipe can be made 48 hours ahead and topped just before serving.
