Taco dip is a fantastic treat to bring for a tailgate, or any event for that matter. I love how easy it is, but so simple at the same time. You can also adjust what you put on top of the dip depending on the crowd that will be enjoying this treat. Usually, I add the cheese before any other toppings- however, I forgot it until the end. Oops! Bring this to your next party, and the guests will love it!! Enjoy!
16 oz reduced fat cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup reduced fat sour cream
3-4 Tbl taco seasoning (or one packet of store brand)
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 can black olives, sliced
4 scallions, diced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a medium bowl mix cream cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning. Spread taco mixture onto a large circular serving platter (you could also use a pie pan if you want to base a little thicker). Top evenly with cheddar cheese. Add lettuce, tomatoes, and black olives. Top with scallions. Serve with tortilla chips.
