Cheesy Fiesta Taco Dip in Just 30 Minutes

Cheesy Fiesta Taco Dip is loaded with layer upon layer of your favorite Mexican flavors. It is the perfect easy taco dinner, any night of the week.


Can you believe Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner.  You may remember our 7 Layer Mexican Bean Dip and our 4 Layer Pizza Dip that we have raved about.  Loaded with our favorite flavors all packed into an awesome dip.  We love these dips that double as a meal.


Well, we have been head over heals in love with new Cheesy Fiesta Taco Dip.  It is insane! Layer upon layer of taco goodness.  Served with Doritos it is even better than the ever popular taco at the bell!  No matter how you serve it, this dip will be a hit.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
