Tasty Thursday: Tried and True Recipe

Greetings! I've been out of town for 4 days and am thrilled to be home with my kids and dh tonight. They are watching the Pens, so I thought I'd grab a moment to post my tried and true recipe. This is for Beefy Taco Dip. It is one recipe that I return to over and over again when in need of an appetizer or game day snack.

Beefy Taco Dip

1- 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened

1 cup sour cream

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1 pound ground beef

1 envelope taco seasoning mix (use spicy for some extra kick)

1 (8 ounce) can of tomato sauce

2 cups shredded cheddar or taco cheese

4 cups shredded lettuce

2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 small onion, diced

1 medium green pepper, diced

Tortilla chips

In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise until smooth. Spread on a 12-14 inch pizza pan or serving dish. Refrigerate for one hour. In a saucepan over medium heat, brown beef; drain. Add taco seasoning and tomato sauce; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Cool completely. Spread over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate. Just before serving, sprinkle with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and green peppers. Serve with chips.
