Baked Taco Dip - perfect for game day

Baked Taco Dip

Baked Taco Dip is a warm dip that is perfect for Game Day, parties, potlucks…and really any occasion! It comes together in minutes and will be enjoyed by all!

Baked Taco Dip

Baked Taco Dip came in to my life over 15 years ago when I was working as a mortgage loan processor for a mortgage lender. My office always had potlucks and a gal I worked with brought this dip in…and I was instantly hooked! The ingredients (may seem weird at first-trust me they are delish) seemed fresh and the flavor was amazing! Little did I know most of the “fresh” ingredients came from cans (with a few fresh things added)! But I promise you even with the canned ingredients, this is one dip you will love! It is a warm, cheesy and perfectly seasoned dip that you won’t be able to stop eating!

Just a side note: The can opener (for your canned ingredients) that I have listed below is amazing! It cuts the can open so there are no sharp edges! I always have 2 in my kitchen in case one breaks! You need one!

The “Fresh” Ingredients for your warm Taco Dip

Baked Taco Dip is basically made up of taco toppings or things you would find in a Mexican dish. It is sort of a Tex-Mex dip that isn’t a salsa, isn’t a queso…it is just freaking GOOD!

For this Baked Taco Dip you will need: shredded cheddar cheese, mayo-the real deal-no substitutes (seems weird but it is delish), canned chopped black olives, canned chopped green chilis (mild unless you like it with more heat), chopped fresh tomato, chopped green onions (I told you there was a little bit of fresh in this dip), and some seasonings!

Making/Heating Your Baked Taco Dip

To make this dip, just dump it all together and stir it up! Spread it in an 8×8 baking dish.

Throw the dish in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. No need to cover the dip with foil!

This dip also heats great in the slow cooker on low or high (depending on soon you need it) for a few hours.

Serving the warm perfect Baked Taco Dip

Ok, no explanation needed on this one! This dip is best served with tortilla chips but I am guessing it could be rolled up in a warm tortilla or act as a topping for Mexican Dishes! (I think the best way to eat this is with tortilla chips though!)
