Fantastic Mexican Dip

"I have made and eaten a lot of seven layer dips. This one is by far the best I have tasted so far," says community member @Navy_Mommy. "The cream cheese mixture on the bottom gives a lot more flavor than sour cream along. The meat doesn't get clumpy like it does when you use taco seasoning on it, but it still has a lot of flavor. I have found a new Mexican dip recipe."

The Best Taco Dip

"This is an awesome recipe," says Allrecipes community member yankeecreampie. "We ate it for dinner two nights in a row, it was so good. Having made this so many times, I've played with it a bit and here is how I make it now: After preparing the beef/bean mixture and putting it into the bottom of the pan, I put on the olives, tomatoes, and cheese. Then I bake it and put on the sour cream and green onions (subbed these for regular onion) when it comes out of the oven. It is sooooooo much better that way. The sour cream retains its creamy texture, and the green onions retain their bite. If the sour cream is baked, it gets kind of curdled and we like it better the other way. Very very good recipe!"

Beefy Cheese Dip

"This is such an easy recipe!! It was a family favorite," says DesiLuGirl. "I served it with a dollop of sour cream and Frito Scoops! My niece LOVED it she had 2 or 3 bowls. It's best served warm so I suggest cooking it in a slow cooker and keeping it on low as you serve it or even just putting it in a slow cooker to just keep warm."

Layered Taco Dip with Meat

"I made this for our Super Bowl party," says Chris Parker. "It disappeared very quickly. I can't eat beans so it was nice to find a recipe like this without beans. The fresh lettuce made it nice and fresh. It's absolutely modifiable but it is fine as is. Thanks!"
