Taco Dip

This may just be my favorite recipe. It is absolutely delicious! Robert and our friends love it so much I have had several people ask for the recipe. Not to mention every UFC fight or football game I make this dip for everyone. It is a easy appetizer, tailgating food or even meal itself. Yummm :)

I must admit I am not a fan of refried beans or sour cream (this dish contains both) but I absolutely love this! With all the flavors and textures combined it is difficult to distinguish one ingredient from another. Everything compliments each other and you don't even realize what you are really eating! Don't knock it 'till you try it.

Hot Ground Beef Mexican Dip A.K.A "Taco Dip"
-1 pound ground beef
-1 16 ounce can refried beans
-1 envelope taco seasoning
-1 cup sour cream
-1 16 ounce jar of salsa
-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
*optional: jalapenos and/or black olives

Brown the ground beef and drain the grease. Stir in the refried beans and the taco seasoning. Ill admit at this point it doesn't look too appetizing but trust me, it will!

Spoon into a 9x13 baking dish. Combine the sour cream and salsa and then spread over the meat mixture. (I know, I still doesn't look to appetizing...just hang in there!)

 Sprinkle with cheese...

Now bake it at 400 degrees until bubbly; about 30 minutes. Serve it with tortilla chips or "scoops" Frito's. We prefer the Frito's :) You can even put it in a taco shell if you want.

See, it finally looks better doesn't it! You'll definitely have to try this one out for yourselves...its a guaranteed favorite :)
