Reviews for Texas Taco Dip Platter
"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!"
"This is a good recipe very tasty, I serve it on plates or bowls will be making it for Super Bowl Game we like to drizzle a little homemade salsa on it too with a few garden canned jalapenos yummmmmmm"
"Question: How do you eat this? Do you spoon it on to plates with more corn chips? Do you use tortilla chips and scoop it up right from the platter?"
"I have been making this for many years and my family absolutely loves it. When I say I'm making Texas Taco Platter, I know I'll have a house full of people."
