Reviews for Beefy Taco Dip
"Made this for an Easter gathering. Everyone loved it! Tasted great!"
"bottom layer too bland, pretty tho, would play around with spicing more. An awful big mess, when you dump on the floor !!!!!"
"good base dip, but I felt that the flavors could have been a little more outstanding. I will make again, and play with the spices next time."
"This is a winner! My husband raved over it. I keep coming back for leftovers. One variation I tried and liked, was to saute diced onion and zucchini with the meat. This kept the mixture a little moister and added a little more vegetable content. We'll be having this often."
"Rather than using tomato sauce, try with salca sauce, sublime! :)"
"We like this recipe! The tomato sauce and fresh tomatoes give it great tomato flavor. The cream cheese mixture offsets the taco spices, onions and peppers. It can be spiced up with hotter peppers, zestier onions and a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes in the meat mixture."
"very tasty but I make a version where I added refried beans as the base, cover it with avocado seasoned, salsa, shredded Mexican cheese and gr onions on top and heat it at 350 for 20 mins. Just prefer it hot! /g Borczyk Field Editor"
"this recipe is awesome! I have made this many times and it is allways a big hit."
"this recipe is so awesome! I have made this many times and it is allways a big hit."
"I added one package of taco seasoning to the sour cream, mayo and cream cheese mixture so it was orange and it tasted way better and I also used sliced black olives and sliced green onions instead of regular onions and green pepper. Everyone asks for the recipe and everyone absolutely loves it!!!"
"Yum! I was not sure about cold ground beef, but it worked so well! I substituted salsa for the tomato sauce and taco seasoning."
"I always make this for parties at the office and it is an office favorite. Tip I substitute 93% fat free ground turkey in place of ground beef and everyone still loves it. I also don't use the green peppers but use chopped green onions and sliced black olives as a garnish w/ the cheese and tomatoes. And if you really want to spruce it up for the ones who don't like ground meat I always add on the bottom layer refried beans w/ a packet of taco seasoning and you can't go wrong. Try it you'll like it to."
"easy and delicious! I added about a 3/4 cup of refried beans to the meat mixture and used salsa instead of tomato sauce. It was a hit!"
"awesome...better if you use salad dressing instead of mayo!"
"This is a family favorite! Requested many times over the years!"
"What a fantastic recipe! I have made it numerous time and everyone who has tasted it loves it! I didn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing it."
