Taco Dip

The Best Taco Dip Recipe

This delicious Taco Dip is perfect for a holiday party or to ring in the New Year!

Isn’t is fun to “dip”? Sounds a bit odd hearing it that way, but it’s so very true!

I love dipping crackers, veggies, and chips in a variety of dips…but this Taco Dip has to be one of my all-time favorites. 

First off, it’s crazy simple to make.

If you have a few moments of time, you can whip this up.

And honestly, everyone seems to love Taco Dip!

Trust me…you make and take this to the next event and they’ll be cheers when you walk in the door! (maybe not, but still…it’s fun to think about)

While this dip recipe is great for holidays, don’t forget that in just a few short months the Super Bowl is right around the corner.

This homemade taco dip recipe is one addition that your game day table needs to have. Finger foods are always a “touchdown” in my opinion, so why not kick off the holiday party or super bowl party with a surefire recipe hit? 

Don’t worry about making room in your fridge for any leftovers…there won’t be a single drop or crumb left!

ADDITIONAL TACO DIP TIPS

TACO SEASONING: I like to use this taco seasoning in this dip, but you can use your favorite taco seasoning.

CHUNKY SALSA: Using chunky salsa is VERY important when making taco dip if the salsa is too “runny” the dip tends to be watery and lose its flavor. I use this chunky salsa, it’s the best!

TACO DIP TOPPINGS: The best part about making this dip is you can add all of your favorite toppings, my favorite is tomatoes so I like to add a ton of them into the dip but feel free to add jalapeño peppers, green peppers, and onions, the options are endless.

MAKE COLD TACO DIP THE DAY BEFORE: If you are not serving the taco dip right after you make it, then I would wait until your just about ready to serve this taco dip to top with the additional shredded cheese, tomatoes, black olives, or any other favorite topping you want to add.

COLD TACO DIP RECIPE

KITCHEN TOOLS NEEDED

ELECTRIC MIXER: You will need to use an electric mixer to mix all the ingredients together and to make sure that the dip doesn’t have lumps of cream cheese in it.

MIXING BOWLS: I love these mixing bowls, they’re so durable and the colors are so fun!

SPATULA: Everyone needs a GOOD spatula and this one is my favorite!

CHIP & DIP BOWL: This is the chip & dip bowl that I used!
