Ingredients for taco dip:
Block of cream cheese
Sour cream (enough to equal cream cheese)
Old el paso taco seasoning mix
Cheddar Cheese (2 cups)
Taco Sauce or Salsa
1/2 Green pepper
Directions for making taco dip:
Heat the block of cream cheese in a glass bowl until soft. Add
equal amounts of sour cream. Add 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning mix.
Use an electric mixer to blend together. Taste, you may add more seasoning at this
point if you prefer. Spread mixture evenly in a 10x15 or approximate
glass dish. Spread a layer of taco sauce or salsa. Add the shredded
cheese . Then top with diced tomatoes and green peppers. Chill and
serve with nachos.
Here are a few tips
Cut your cheese into 1 inch strips before you shred so you will
have small pieces of cheese. This prevents the cheese from falling
off of your nacho. Also you keep the dip from getting runny, remove
the seeds from the tomatoes. You may also add olives, lettuce or
anything else you may like.
1 ripe avocado
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, very finely chopped (seeds and rind removed)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. cumin
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 ½ tsp's dried cilantro or ½ tsp of fresh cilantro
Salt and Pepper to taste.
In a medium bowl, mash avocado with fork until desired consistency
(I like mine smooth, but you can leave it a little chunky) add the
juice of 1 lime and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximate. 30 minutes.
You don’t want to make this too far in advance to serving
as it will turn brownish.
