Taco Chip Dip is so good and simple to make! Whip the ingredients together, scoop it into a casserole dish to spread out evenly, and top with shredded Cheese. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve with a big bag of Tostitos Chips, Tortilla Chips or Doritos and enjoy. It’s an excellent dish when hosting or serving at a gathering, game night, and over the Holidays.

The first time I had this. I could not stop eating it. By the end of the night, it was all gone. It really is that good. I found myself making it over and over again until I had my fill. Now I always come back to this. It’s just too good. It makes a large Tray where you can set down with a side of Chips.

Taco Chip Dip Ingredients

Made with just Four (4) simple ingredients.

Taco Chip Dip Ingredients

Taco Chip Dip Ingredients

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese

These three ingredients are whisked together until nice and smooth before being scooped into a tray or shallow casserole dish. Then topped off with shredded Cheddar Cheese and refrigerated until ready to serve. This is the base recipe, to which other ingredients can be added to shape the dip.

You can serve this just as a simple dip or get complex with it, adding in a layer of Taco seasoned meat, Refried Beans, and/or topping it off with Salsa. You can even serve it hot. Place it into the oven to bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes. Remove and serve.

Taco Chip Dip Toppings

Optionally, top with diced Onions, Tomatoes & Peppers or Pico De Gallo or even a bit of Salsa on top before adding the Cheese. Guacamole, Red Taco Sauce, Cilantro Cream Sauce, and other blends of cheese work too.

Shredded Cheese

The go-to cheese is Cheddar Cheese. Although this can be exchanged with the Three Cheese Blend of Mozzarella, Cheddar, and Monterey Jack Cheese or the Tex Mex Cheese.

Chips

Any kind of Tortillas Chips can be used with this dip. To change things up a bit, you can substitute the tortilla chips with Nacho Doritos.

Tostitos Rounds

I prefer the round Tostitos instead of the triangle ones to scoop up that wonderful Dip.
