Every Potluck's Favorite - EASY Cold Taco Dip

Yum

Behold: My most popular recipe. Unfortunately, the thousands of pins are currently leading NOWHERE since it lived on my old blog that I allowed to expire.


Oops.

So, here it is again. With much, much better pictures.


It's funny though, I think the horrible pictures might be exactly what made the original pin so popular in the first place. Pretty pictures make people think the recipe is difficult. Crappy pictures make people think "hey, someone just like me who can't take pictures made this, I can make it too!"

Anyways, this is my favorite potluck offering. It's cold, tasty, and is so easy and inexpensive to put together!


This taco dip is my stepfather's recipe (he wanted to make sure if I was blogging about it he was given due credit). Along with his meatloaf and strawberry pie, it's one of my favorite things he makes and is his most requested item for parties.

Famous Cold Taco Dip
  • 1 can (~ 2 cups) refried beans
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/8 cup sliced black olives

-Mix together the sour cream, mayo, and taco seasoning. Add the seasoning slowly and taste as you go to season to your liking.

-In a large, shallow dish spread the beans. Top with the sour cream mixture.

-Top with cheese and the veggies. Put in the fridge until ready to serve.

-Serve with tortilla chips.
