How to Make the Perfect Layered Taco Dip with Meat
Creating this flavorful dip couldn’t be easier. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the recipe:
- Start by combining cream cheese with sour cream and Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix. This mixture forms the first layer of the dip and adds a creamy and tangy base.
- Next, brown the ground beef with onions and add Ortega Fire-Roasted Green Chiles, Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix, and Ortega Black Beans. This juicy beef and bean mixture becomes the hearty second layer of the dip.
- Top it all off with shredded cheese, juicy tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and a drizzle of Ortega Medium Taco Sauce. These final touches add bursts of flavor and freshness to complete the dip.
Flexibility and Tips for Personalization
Feel free to get creative when garnishing your dip. Try adding green onions, bell peppers, other types of chiles, salsa, shredded lettuce, avocado, guacamole, black olives, or red onions. Customize it to your liking and enjoy the endless possibilities for personalization.
If you prefer a spicier dip, use a spicy taco seasoning or add a pinch of cayenne to the ground beef while browning it. Vegetarians can also substitute an extra can of beans for the ground beef, ensuring that they still get that delicious taco flavor by seasoning the beans with taco seasoning.
Time to Dig In and Delight Your Taste Buds
This Layered Beef Taco Dip is best enjoyed fresh on the day it’s made. However, if you have leftovers, they can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just be aware that the veggies may become slightly soggy over time. So gather your friends and family, grab some tortilla chips, and get ready to savor the flavors of this remarkable dip.
Remember, for the best results, make sure to use brick-style cream cheese and not the whipped kind that comes in a tub. And if you’re looking to add a twist to your dip, try using ground turkey instead of beef for a delightful variation.
