Layered Taco Dip

Layered Taco Dip-7 (1 of 1)

The holiday weekend is here. Since I live just 40 minutes from the Canada/U.S border we usually like to celebrate both Canada Day and Independence Day. It’s great…two times the fun. I like to plan a day or two in advance what we plan on eating for the holiday weekend. Everything is planned around food. 

One of the most coveted recipes in our house is the layered taco dip. There are dozens of variations of this recipe, but this is our favourite. And actually this time I forgot the taco seasoning mix. My hubby was devastated….for a moment. Until I realized that I could probably make a homemade taco seasoning mix. So I did just that with this recipe (minus the oregano). It was perfect. I won’t need to buy another package of taco seasoning mix again.

You can totally add or take off the toppings you want or don’t want and it is actually ok the next day as well. This time it didn’t make it to the leftovers department of the fridge 🙁

Make sure you’ve got lots of tortilla chips on hand.

Happy Holiday Weekend Everyone!

My favourite part, sprinkle with shredded cheese.


Layered Taco Dip-6 (1 of 1)

Add chopped tomatoes and green onions. I had to go easy on the green onions because of the kids. You can add Olives, lettuce, peppers, avocados. Just about any Mexican style ingredient you want.

Scoop some of this yummy taco dip onto a plate or eat it right from the platter if you want. I did both 🙂
