Easy Taco Dip Recipe – This easy dip recipe is loaded with flavor and perfect for any get together. Perfect snack for game day, a last minute appetizer or just a snack!  

I have said it a million times here before, but my family loves Mexican food.  So it should come as no surprise this taco dip has been a staple in our house for years.  It is made on a weekly basis during football season for sure!  Along with Mexican Pizzas it is a huge hit. 

Next to Baked Mexican Cheese Dip it is hard to pick what is more loved.  Good thing they are different enough we can make them both and serve them side by side. 

Layered Taco Dip is great for game day or a quick and easy appetizer


There are a lot of layered taco dip recipes out there, but this one is super simple and our all time favorite.  The base is a mix of sour cream, cream cheese and taco seasoning.  Then you top with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and black olives.  That is it!  

The base of this dip is so good, a lot of the time we just make that and skip all the toppings.  A creamy and slightly spicy dip is always a good idea!  This Spicy Cajun Dip is another great idea for game day.

How to Make Taco Dip

  • Start with softened cream cheese and mix with sour cream and taco seasoning.  I like to use the spicy taco seasoning to give it more flavor.
  • You can make the base of this dip ahead of time and just store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.  
  • The longer the dip sits the more the flavors come together.  So I like to mix this together a few hours early.  Not necessary at all, but if you have time it is great to make ahead. 
  • Spread the dip on a plate or serving dish.  Top with shredded lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and black olives.  
  • Serve with tortilla chips and just watch it disappear! 
The best taco dip for an get together! Creamy, spicy, and delicious.

This taco dip recipe is quickly going to become a staple in your house.  You can mix up the toppings to incorporate your favorites as well.  Jalapenos, green onions and even diced avocado make a great addition.  

Layered taco dip can sometimes to be heavy and over the top with all the layers.  This version is so simple and basic, which is why I like it.  It has all my favorites and nothing more!  

Our favorite taco dip. Super easy to make, delicious creamy layers and perfect game day snack!
