Texas Taco Dip Platter
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours
This recipe is AMAZING! That being said, it's also huge. I made a half recipe and it still fed a lot of people as an appetizer. This is definitely going to be my go-to snack for a crowd. I used seasoned rice for this, but I'm sure it would also be delicious with plain rice. FANTASTIC!
I made this as a lunch and delicious as written. I added Saxon Seasoning packet to water for rice.
I know this recipe as Mexican Stack. Absolutely love it. I love adding jalapenos on one side and banana peppers on the opposite side. Fun recipe to serve to guests.
Bobbie The recipe calls for you to layer the corn chips, rice, meat mixture.... in step 2. The sauce is simmered to meld the flavors and thicken.Hope that helps,Sue StetzelRecipe Support SpecialistTaste of Home Magazine
The recipe isn't very clear. After cooking the meat sauce, what do you do with it? I don't know why it would have to simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Don't change a thing.
I've been making a dish like this for years, we call it "dinner nachos" because it's got meat, veggies and lots of cheese. The nice thing about it is that you can vary the ingredients to whatever is on hand or you're in the mood for. I use extra lean ground beef so I don't have to drain it. I've always thought it was silly to add onions, garlic and spices to ground beef and then drain away those flavors when the meat was done cooking.
Added fresh roasted green chilies to the meat mixture as it simmered and fresh jap on top of the pile. I think salsa and maybe a dollop of sour cream on top would be good.
Made this last night with a couple of substitutes. Instead of the tomato paste & puree, I just added a container of my favorite deli salsa to the meat. Definitely a hit at our house. Will be making it again!
