Kekoa Makes The Best Quick And Easy Taco Dip Ever!
The first time I ate taco dip was during a trip to Guam to visit my dad’s side of the family. My Aunty Marie had made it and I felt like I could eat the whole dish.
When I got back to Maui, I really wanted a good taco dip and the ones I had bought were so not the same. So I looked online for a recipe that looked good and I came across one that mixed cream cheese with the sour cream.
I knew that recipe would be good because, well, you just can’t go wrong with cream cheese. I’m sorry I can’t remember where I found the original recipe, I believe it was on allrecipes.com but the following is how we have been making it.
- 1 Can Refried Beans
- 1lb Ground Beef Or Ground Turkey
- 2 Packets Taco Seasoning
- 16oz Sour Cream
- 16oz Cream Cheese
- Jar Salsa
- Grated/Shredded Cheese
How To Make Taco Dip
- Brown your ground beef or ground turkey.
- While your meat is cooking, mix one packet of taco seasoning with the one can of refried beans. (We actually get the Mccormick taco seasoning from Costco which comes in a big container…not packet sized…then we just add to taste.)
- Evenly spread the beans in a half-size aluminum pan. (You can use a smaller size dish it will just end up thicker.)
- When your meat is just about done, add the second packet of taco seasoning with some water (see taco seasoning packet instructions) and let it simmer for a little.
- Spread the meat over the beans.
- Combine/mix the sour cream and cream cheese.
- Spread the mixture over the meat.
- Spread the salsa over the sour cream/cream cheese mixture.
- You can add shredded cheese after each layer.
Note: You can serve this dish hot or cold with chips or you can add it to shredded lettuce to make a taco salad. This makes about 12 servings.
This was a pretty cool and fairly simple dish to teach Kekoa how to make. I just watch over him when he is browning the meat to make sure he breaks it up good and doesn’t get burnt.
He thought of a pattern for making the dish which was…
- Ground turkey
- Sour cream
Frustrations And Struggles
He also had to be pretty patient to mix the cream “cheese and sour cream”. It would be way easier if you have an Electric Mixer (he wanted to mix it himself).
Kekoa also had to be very patient and careful when trying to spread the layers evenly. Honestly, it nearly drove him insane trying to spread the beans and sour cream/cream cheese mixture evenly, But he did it!
Now, he can add this to his recipe book. Hope you guys enjoy the video of Kekoa making this yummy taco dip and if you try to make it at home we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
