Fiesta Cheesy Taco Dip

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. Add some protein with this fiesta chicken dip.

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.

Making Cheesy Taco Dip

Quick Tip:

Pre-shredded cheeses have additives to help keep the cheese from sticking together, called anti-caking agents. They also change the way the cheese melts and will cause thickening of your recipes. Skip the pre-shredded cheese and grate your own. I store it in a zip-top bag in the fridge and it keeps for several weeks.
