The Ultimate Taco Dip #SundaySupper

By September 4, 2016 Appetizer, Blog, Sunday Supper 6 Comments

I have been making this dip forever.  It didn’t have a name until my Son-in-Law declared it to be The Ultimate Taco Dip.  I have to agree with him.  This may be the most requested party dish I have. The grandchildren love it as much as the guys.  It is the thing that I take to just about any football party and come home with a clean dish.  Isn’t that the best?


It’s one of those things I make from memory.  I can recite the ingredients off the top of my head:  A pound of ground beef (or Turkey), 2 16 oz bottles of taco sauce, 1 cup of refried beans, 1 or 2 small cans of diced green chilis and a pound of Velveeta.


Now that I am older and know better, I don’t cook with processed foods but Velveeta.   It’s one of those things I can’t live without.  This dip is a prime example. Mac & Cheese is not the same without it.  I could go on and on but Velveeta is the secret weapon that makes this dish so good!


This is a dip that is best served warm.  it gets a bit gummy and unappetizing if allowed to cool.  I have a Terra cotta Hot Dip Server I use for this dish but you could use a small chafing dish – whatever works best for you.

I knew this was the perfect dish to add to the Sunday Supper Easy Football Food Ideas for Game Day Event.  It is the one dip that my family loves to have again and again.  Now that football season is gearing up come and find inspiration with all of the Sunday Supper favorites:

I would like to give a big shout out to our host:  Coleen of The Redhead Baker  and all of the SundaySupper admins for their efforts to make this event happen!
