Then when on earth has it taken me this long to actually make it?! I mean seriously. If I look forward to it that much there is no good reason I can offer. Sure the hubs doesn’t like about half of that stuff I just listed but I go to parties and ladies nights and everything else so why haven’t I made it? I suppose it’s so easy, everyone makes it and I feel like people expect more from a blogger. It’s a lot of pressure people.
I’ve also learned that people are nervous to come to my parties because they think I’m going to judge the food they make! You guys, that’s so silly! Nothing I make is that fancy. Heck, I just love other people cooking and baking for me! I will never ever judge you!
Also, I’ve never made it for you because I figure that everyone has this recipe and knows about this dip because everyone makes it except me right? Well in case you haven’t been introduced to this staple around the Midwest I’m here to share. I don’t want you missing out on it because well it’s easy but it’s epic. I could pretty much sit down with the entire platter and a bag of chips….. don’t judge.

I finally made this when I was searching for a treat for my sister-in-laws birthday. We work with each other and I started this thing where I bring a birthday treat for the birthday lady/guy. Now I know this sounds crazy but the said sister-in-law doesn’t really like sweets. I know. GASP. So I began racking my brain for ideas and after a while I’m like duh. Taco Dip. I can throw it together the night before, I know she loves it, and I haven’t blogged it. It was kind of a no brainer. Plus, as previously mentioned I could eat the whole platter….
I also learned my daughter loves black olives after making this. That’s another story.
