Taco Dip. At any party or gathering I’ve been to it is always one of the first appetizers to disappear. We love it so much that I even make it for dinner sometimes. One of my kids’ favorite dinners is when we make a bunch of appetizers and finger foods and watch a movie or sports game together while munching.
I boosted up the amount of meat in this dip so it is hearty enough to be part of dinner. I used ground turkey but feel free to sub in beef or another ground meat of your choice. We even have friends who use venison in their tacos. We had this with a few friends and there was a little bit leftover. I was happy to eat it for lunch the next day with a spoon. No dippers required.
As I mentioned I have no problem just eating this with a spoon. It is also great with low carb chips and fresh veggies, especially sweet peppers. You can use the same ingredients to make stuffed peppers. Instead of baking it in a pie plate just bake it inside the peppers.
