Taco dip has been one of my favourite appetizers since I was a kid. The best part is, almost anyone can make it and its always the hit of the party. It is best to make just prior to use, not more than 5 hours ahead of time unless all the toppings are well-drained to avoid a runny dip. You can certainly experiment with toppings as you like!
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1 container sour cream
1 package taco seasoning (reduced salt)
1 small green pepper, diced
2-3 Roma tomatoes, diced and drained
1 cup salsa, drained
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1/2 cup olives, pitted & chopped
2-3 cups of medium cheddar cheese
Directions: Using an electric beater, mix cream cheese, sour cream & taco seasoning until well blended, about 3-5 minutes. Spread evenly over bottom of serving tray (approx 8x8, though any size is fine). Cover with thin layer of well-drained salsa. Top with remaining toppings, saving cheese for last. Serve with tortilla chips.
