VIVA LA TACOS!!!

You may already know this, but I’m a little obsessed with all things taco. So this creamy taco dip is completely at home here on the blog.

Basically, this is a recipe for taco dip with meat – specifically ground hamburger. It’s the perfect setup for an easy recipe.

Here’s the short version:

A layer with creamy cream cheese, a mixture of salsa, taco, ground beef and beans, and then a layer of cheesy deliciousness.

How to make hot taco dip with ground beef and cream cheese

Take a pie pan (if you have one) or a medium sized casserole dish.

Spread the cream cheese with a spatula to cover the bottom of your dish.

Cook the ground beef and onions, then drain.

Add green chilis, salsa, chili & beans, and taco seasoning to the fiesta!

Top the cream cheese with the mixture and then sprinkle with cheese.

Ole! Super easy and so delicious!

If you want to spice things up, you can use a hotter salsa, or serve jarred jalapeno slices on the side.

You can also assemble this ahead of time and heat it up when your guests arrive. I recommend serving it with a cold beer or two.

Oh, and tortilla chips. You’ll want those for dipping.

I grabbed this photo halfway through the feeding frenzy and was almost attacked by a hungry diner. The things I do for you, friends….
