Tasty Taco Dip Recipe

Here's a tasty taco dip from my wife's cousin that's popular whenever she makes it. Note that it tastes best when you create the cream dip portion the night before and refrigerate to consolidate the flavors.

Taco Dip

  • Blend 3 (8 oz.) cream cheese and 1 large container of sour cream
  • 5 teaspoons of chili powder
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 5 teaspoons (or more to taste) of taco sauce
Mix first 3 ingredients and in the base of a 9 x 13 pan.

The cream cheese/sour cream layer tastes best when prepared and chilled in the refrigerator the day before.

Before serving, add any or all of the following: chopped onions, chopped lettuce, diced tomatoes, green peppers or grated cheddar cheese. Dribble taco sauce over the cream spread and veggies and serve with plain tortilla chips.

Is it good? The design crew at Northwoods sat and consumed a plate of this stuff in the lunchroom within 30 minutes, so that would be a yes. :-)
