The fastest, most deliciously satisfying taco dip, EVER! It’s easy and yummy whether you have it for a snack or Sunday night supper. We serve it with white corn chips, but you should use your family’s favorite. These ingredients are almost always in my kitchen, so we can whip up a platter any time someone stops by and have often done so.
All you need is a platter to build it on and these simple ingredients.
- 1 or 2 cans of refried beans (adjust this amount to your personal preference)
- (1) 16 oz carton sour cream, (we normally use light, but have used full-fat and non-fat with great results)
- 1 packet (any brand) taco seasoning mix
- 1 to 2 cups grated cheddar cheese, (we tend to lean toward the “more is better” side of cheese – lol)
- 1 or 2 chopped tomatoes
- 2 green onions with tops, chopped
Start by spreading the refried beans onto your platter. Scootch them out to within an inch or so of the edge and try to make the layer a uniform thickness across the plate.
For the second layer, use a small mixing bowl and stir the sour cream and taco seasoning together. Once it is mixed, spread the sour cream mixture over the refried beans.
Top the sour cream mixture with a generous layer of shredded cheddar cheese. It will make all passersby very excited! — lol
Beautiful granddaughter #1 loves tomatoes as much as grandma, so the next layer was 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped.
Top it off with the diced green onions and it will look as pretty and appetizing as it is delicious! It only takes a few minutes to prepare and it is always a crowd pleaser!
This recipe is well received at youth group meetings, football parties or snack attacks. You could easily add ingredients that your family enjoys, like black olives, a layer of guacamole, minced jalapeno, etc. Be creative and customize it to your personal tastes or just follow this recipe to the letter. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!
