Reviews forTaco Dip
"what I would consider missing ingrediences, would be scallions (green onions), refried beans and inplace of the chedder and monerey jack cheeses, would be pre-packaged pre-seasoned "taco" cheese"
"This recipe is easy and delicious. It is a nice change from the layered dips that call for refried beans. I have made this several times."
"I love this recipe! I added refried beans as a bottom layer and my fiance can't get enough of it!"
"Delicious even without the lettuce and olives!"
"This dip is so simple and my family eats it up in no time! I take it everywhere I go! Thanks"
