Due to the Minnesota Vikings playing today, I had to make something quick and easy to eat with your hands. I found a new type of dipping chip, so I had to try them.
Layered Taco Dip
1 pound ground beef
1 taco seasoning packet
water according to package
1 cup taco mix shredded cheese
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup sour cream
In a large frying pan, brown ground beef on medium heat. Drain and rinse. Mix in seasoning packet and water and simmer according to packet. Place taco meat on a serving plate, top with shredded cheese, salsa and sour cream in that order. Serve with chips. If desired add refried beans and guacamole between cheese and salsa layers.
I'm not partial to either guacamole or refried beans, so I didn't add them to this dip. I wanted to have a eat with chips kind of meal, so a taco dip was a good choice to go with a football game. Had I had sliced black olives, I would have added them too. I didn't need anything else for dinner today because I wasn't having a big party. I found some new dipping strips to go with the dip instead of regular tortilla chips. They were ok, but I think the bite sized round chips would have held up better with this kind of thick dip. I think they are better for a cheese dip or a salsa.
Whether you win or lose today (they're in overtime as I type)
Flavor Rating: Good, just like a taco.
Ease of Preparation: Easy, it's ok to get messy with your dip.
