Taco Dip

You know how everyone has their signature dish...something they always make and everyone enjoys and requests? Mine happens to be Taco Dip. And I wish I could tell you that it's really hard to make. That I spend hours toiling over the stove. But that's just not true. In fact, a monkey could probably make it. 

My mom started making this when we were kids for special occasions and parties. And I've carried on the tradition.

Dawn's Taco Dip

1 (8 oz) container of sour cream (you can use light to reduce the calories)
1 (8 oz) container of cream cheese (I like the whipped kind because it's easier to stir)
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup lettuce, chopped

Combine sour cream, cream cheese, taco seasoning. Pour into a pie pan, or other vessel, top with cheese, tomato, lettuce.

Ta - da! You're done! Serve with taco chips. Oh, and I advise making a double batch. This will be a big hit.

I also come from a Taco-dip loving family! We do the same except instead of lettuce we just do chopped tomatoes, green pepper and onions. And I add a little salsa to the sour cream/cream cheese/taco seasoning mixture. Love it!

Ooo! That's a good idea! I might have to try that.
