One of my favorite cuisines is Mexican food. You can't beat the flavor profiles, the variety of recipes, the classic dishes and everything in between. My favorite recipes are quesadillas, enchiladas, and this delicious four layer taco dip, and for good reason. Easy to make, and even easier to devour in seconds, this dip is the best recipe for a game day gathering or even for dinner.
My love for Mexican food is strong, and whenever I have the opportunity to make quesadillas, fajitas, or tacos, I go for it. This four layer taco dip is literally a taco in dip form and is the perfect crowd pleaser. Game day snacks, dinner, lunch, appetizer for a girls night, this taco dip is versatile and travels well, too. Grab your favorite type of chips and get ready for the best tasting taco dip you'll eat.
The origin of taco dip dates back to the 80s, and was first named Seven Layer Taco Dip in Family Circle magazine. Since then, there have been a bevy of varieties, numerous layers, and alterations to this beloved dip. My version of a taco dip is only four layers: sour cream, salsa, ground beef (or turkey), and shredded Mexican cheese. This layered dip is not typically baked in the oven either, it's meant to be a dip served as is. No frills, no fancy names, just a good ol' taco dip waiting for you to enjoy.
You'll shock yourself with how easy it is to make this recipe ahead of time, and be ready for kickoff with time to spare for a margarita.
No! In fact, this dish is meant to be served as it, without baking or melting the cheese.
Feel free to use ground turkey, ground chicken, or even plant-based crumbles! They all work great here too.
Throw the leftovers into a tortilla and make into a burrito, or ladle some of the dip into scoops for a fun kid-friendly snack.
With Super Bowl, and other events, around the corner, dips are the perfect appetizer! You can make this one, and feed for a few days off one container of this taco dip. I've been making this taco dip for Super Bowl for years, and it's always a hit with my friends. I know it will be for yours too!
