For as long as I can remember, Claudia has been making Layered Taco Dip. Often when I was younger and my parents were entertaining friends at our house, she would making this snack. As a child, I encouraged my parents to have their friends over more often, as it meant I would be able to consume more of this amazing dip.

These days, this dip makes an appearance during football season. Tonight is the Grey Cup, and our Winnipeg Blue Bombers are playing in it. For those who don’t follow the CFL, it’s essentially the Canadian version of the Super Bowl. There are many different versions and customizations to this dip, so please feel free to use your favourite ingredients as layers. Claudia typically keeps it simple with a few main ingredient layers like ground beef, salsa and cheese. I’ve had other variations of this dip that include black olives, refried beans and guacamole. I have found Claudia’s simplicity to this dip to be the best.

 

In a large pan, brown ground beef

Should look like so

Drain excess liquid and place back in pan

Add your water and 1/2 package of taco seasoning

Simmer until liquid has absorbed, about 8 minutes

Set aside to cool

Place cream cheese and sour cream into a mixing bowl

Beat until combined and creamy

Spread sour cream and cream cheese layer on the bottom of serving dish

I used a 9″ x 9″ glass pan

Add your ground beef as a second layer

Next layer on your salsa

Top with shredded cheese for your top layer

Remember to share with a big group of friends in front of the television

Be careful – it’s addicting!

Enjoy…and Go Bombers Go!

      I actually cooked mine at 375 Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes. I served it with cauliflower rice and it was delish!
