Who’s Making The Taco Dip?

taco dip in a bowl

It’s a question we ask before almost every family get-together. Between my sisters, my mom, and me, one of us makes an abundant batch (with the hopes of leftovers) of our family’s thick and velvety taco dip made with Velveeta, cream cheese, chili with no beans and hamburger.

Remember to grab a couple of bags of your favorite tortilla chips. If you need another hot dip to go with it, fiesta bean dip complements it nicely.

Sweet wishes,


Taco Dip
