Mexican Dip Recipe

Awesome! The only change I made was mix the cream cheese/sour cream and taco seasoning, spread in pan and refrigerate for 1/2 hour to settle. Then topped the cheese mixture with the beef mixture. I substituted 1lb of beef for a can of spicy refried beans. Then topped the beef with the cheese, which melted over the hot beef/refried mixture. Then topped with lettuce, scallions and olives. The best ever!

I have made this dip many times for parties and catered events. Recently, I doubled the recipe for a “ladies” function and everyone said that it was way too much (the “we eat like birds” syndrome). I came back an hour later and the dip was GONE! Those ladies ate like vultures!! Everyone loved it. Like others, I add a layer of refried beans as the bottom layer. I can play around with the level of “heat” by mixing hot or medium taco sauce or by adding green chiles. I also use the chopped lettuce as a border so that dipping is easier. Great dip!

Awesome dip! Recipe says medium bowl, you will need a 13×9 baking dish, I used one a bit smaller because it said medium and I ran out of room. It tastes great!! The third time I made this I halfed the ground beef to 1 lb, it’s good either way, but with 1 lb, you definitely taste the cream cheese/sour cream mixture more. Better at room temperature. Next time I might prepare the cream cheese mixture ahead and spread it into the dish, cover with foil and store in fridge overnight before putting everything else on it because the mixture is much more flavorful the next day.

This is sooooooo good, however I changed a couple of the ingredients. First I used 1lb of gr. turkey because the I thought the gr. beef flavor might be to much. I mixed the cooked gr. turkey with a can of refried beans and the taco sauce. This I added to the bottom of the bowl. Instead of regular cream cheese I used whipped cream cheese because it is easier to mix with the sour cream. The cream cheese/sour cream/taco seasoning mixture I added on top of the meat and bean mixture. Next I added a bunch of shredded chedder cheese, I got rid of the lettuce ( I was afraid it might wilt) added the chopped tomatoes, onions and olives. Make sure you add a big spoon to the bowl at your buffet or party because this dip is thick and your chips will break if you just try to scoop it out of the bowl. This dip made this way is super yummy, every one who has tasted it just loves it. You won’t regret making this dip. ;o) Elise P.S Serve this dip cold. After you make it, put it in the fridge and take it out when company comes or you leave to go to where ever you will be taking the dip.

I have made and eaten a lot of seven layer dips. This one is by far the best I have tasted so far. The cream cheese mixture on the bottom gives a lot more flavor than sour cream along. The meat doesn’t get clumpy like it does when you use taco seasoning on it, but it still has a lot of flavor. I have found a new Mexican dip recipe.

Fantastic Mexican Dip Recipe


  • 2 8oz cream cheese boxes
  • 2 big spoonfuls sour cream.
  • 2 pkgs of taco seasoning
  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped black olives
  • chopped green pepper
  • chopped tomatoes
  • 4 cups shredded Mexican Cheese


Beat cream cheese and sour cream together til smooth, add taco seasoning. Spread on large glass dish…top with lettuce, Green onion (if you like onion) Tomatoes and black olives sliced. Top with cheddar cheese…use any corn chips you desire. Best part of this is you can add more or less toppings to the base depending on tastes and kids love it too. I recommend using disposable 9×13 aluminum pan if taking this dish to a party or picnic. It can be split into 2 round cake pans if you have picky eaters too!
