Quick and Easy Meatless Layered Taco Dip that is ready in 5 minutes! This Easy Taco Dip is packed with flavor and the perfect appetizer for a party or game day party. Grab you chips and get to dipping!
I can never get enough dip recipes in my life. They are so good, easy and always a crowd please. Another one of my favorite dip recipes is this Easy Taco Dip, but my husband is not a fan of lettuce, tomatoes and black olives so I came up with this version. Layered Taco Dip still gives me that delicious cream cheese base and a little zip with the salsa but it’s a little more his style so he loves it too! Sometimes it’s about compromises isn’t it?
Plus, it’s even quicker than that Easy Taco Dip recipe I mentioned above. You don’t have to dice anything. You pretty much dump, mix and spread. That’s my kind of style! You could also add a layer of hamburger with or without taco seasoning to this dip to zip it up a little more!
I always serve this delicious Layered Taco Dip with chips, but you could serve it with pita bread, crackers or even some fresh vegetables!
This recipe is so easy I’m pretty sure anyone can pull this off, so if you are new in the kitchen don’t be afraid of it!
Easy Taco Dip
This Easy Taco Dip recipe is perfect for summer parties and potlucks! Make it ahead of time and pop it into the fridge until you are ready to serve it or bring it along. It’s totally portable and so easy, plus it’s usually the first appetizer to disappear at all the parties I attend!
Just make sure to beat the cream cheese layer until it’s light and fluffy so it doesn’t get to firm when you put it in the refrigerator. We don’t want broken chips when trying to dip into it!
If you want to make this taco dip recipe with the lighter and reduced fat products you totally can. We don’t need this dip to hold it’s shape so that is just fine!
When you attend a party do you ever eat all the appetizers and then realize you still have the main meal to go and possibly even dessert? I’m so that person. Appetizers are one of my favorite things and I always over indulge in them, then regret it later!
I mean, maybe not “regret” but wish my stomach was larger? That’s probably more accurate, because it’s really hard to regret sticking your face in dips like this amazing Layered Taco Dip that’s for sure!
How to Make Layered Taco Dip:
