Taco Dip: Raided from Mom’s Recipe Box

Make this awesome dip to go with drinks listed below (healthy drink recipes!), or just make it as a side with dinner one night. I’ve always loved Taco Dip, but the seven layer dip is so heavy and often is not the most healthy. Although it’s delicious, this dip that my Mom makes is perfect for summer get parties as it is much lighter, and also has lots of delicious veggies! Why not try this for Mother’s Day? Or Memorial Day? Memorial Day is only a couple of weeks away. =]

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning. Spread this mixture in a 9-inch (or a little larger) round serving dish. Top the mixture with lettuce, Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, bell pepper and black olives. Note: for a lighter version use fat free cream cheese, and fat free cheddar. Weight watchers makes a great Mexican blend of shredded cheddar!

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) container nonfat sour cream
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1/4 head iceberg lettuce – rinsed, dried, and shredded
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 chopped tomatoes
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (2.25 ounce) can black olives, drained

This dip probably takes about 20 minutes AT MOST to make. Serve it with any kind of tortilla chip. I personally love Tostitos Scoops, it’s so much easier to dip and enjoy with them. Or, if you want to stay away from white tortilla chips, try blue corn or whole grain brands. Delicious and gives you a great crunch.

Also, Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mommas who come here! <3

  6. Seven layer dip is really heavy. It’s good, but it’s got so much “bad for you” crap in it. This dip looks tasty and healthy! I’d smother the crap out of it with jalapenos though. I like it spicy. O_o
