The Egg Burner: Layered Taco Dip

Hello and welcome back to The Egg Burner! I hope you loved last week’s chicken casserole recipe. If you haven’t tried it out yet, you can find the recipe here.

This week, my mom suggested that I try making her layered taco dip recipe. I have been wanting to learn how to make it for a while now, so I thought, “Why not?”

This recipe is the perfect side dish to take to a family gathering or just to enjoy for yourself. Not to mention, it costs less than $14 to make. How great is that?

Let’s get started.

The ingredients needed for this dish are simple.

  • 1 package (8 ounces) of cream cheese ($0.82 at Walmart)
  • 1, 16 ounce container of sour cream ($1.00 at Walmart)
  • 1 handful of cherry tomatoes ($2.47 at Walmart)
  • 1 bunch of green onion ($0.50 at Walmart)
  • 1 pound of ground beef ($2.96 at Walmart)
  • 8 ounces of shredded iceberg lettuce ($1.62 at Walmart)
  • 8 ounces of shredded cheese ($1.98 at Walmart)
  • 2 taco seasoning packets ($1.74 at Walmart)

The equipment needed is minimal.

  • a medium-sized casserole dish
  • a frying pan
  • a mixing bowl
  • drainer

Begin by placing the ground beef in the frying pan. Place over medium-high heat. Chop the ground beef into smaller pieces with a spatula and let stand. Flip meat when it begins to brown. Continue flipping and chopping until the meat is fully cooked and finely chopped.

When the meat is fully cooked, drain it and then place it back in the pan. Next, add one of the taco seasoning packets, as well as the required amount of water according to the packet (mine was ¾ cup). Mix until fully combined.

Place the beef in the casserole dish in a thin layer. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to allow it to set.

While the beef is in the fridge, soften the cream cheese and chop the green onions and tomatoes. My mom recommended softening the cream cheese by submerging it in warm water for about 10 minutes. Set the onions and tomatoes aside.

Once the cream cheese is softened, combine it with the sour cream and remaining taco seasoning packet in a mixing bowl.

Once 30 minutes has passed, remove the casserole dish from the fridge. Then, layer the cream cheese mixture on top of the meat followed by the shredded lettuce,the shredded cheese and finally the green onions and tomatoes.

There you have it: layered taco dip!

Trust me when I say you will not regret making this dish. The flavors are absolutely to die for, and let me warn you: your friends and family will be asking you for the recipe. Make sure to send them my way!

In all seriousness, it was an awesome experience learning this recipe from my mom. This recipe is one I will take with me for years down the road, and when people ask me about it, I will be honored to say I got it from my momma.

If and when you try this recipe, let me know how it went. Have an awesome day!
