Tasty Tuesday ~ Hot, CHEESEY, Taco Dip (crockpot style, football food)
Most Requested, Hot Cheesey Taco Dip (THANK YOU Jeni Dean)
A while back, my friend Jeni made this super awesome dip of cheesey goodness and she served it up in a football crockpot and all was good in the world for the 37 ½ minutes I stood over said crockpot slurping up the deliciousness… sweet picture – right?? We had to have this for our Super Bowl gathering and as usual it caused quite a stir on facebook… even the angels commented… Try it now – and YES, you gotta use REAL Velveeta… call me, I will find you a coupon!!
- · 2 lb. block of Velveeta
- · 1 lb. ground beef
- · 1 package taco seasoning
- · 1 cup sour cream
- · 1 cup salsa
- · Tostito SCOOPS for dipping
Brown your ground beef , drain well, add the taco seasoning (just like you are making tacos… I generally use a little less water than called for – and I generally make up 2-3 lbs. of taco meat at a time and freeze in 1 lb. servings for preplanned meals – are you with me here?)
Cube the whole ENTIRE block of Velveeta (now I throw the cubes in the micro. to start the melting process ‘cus LAWD knows everyone in my house is “starving to death”…)
Mix the melted (or not ) Velveeta, the prepared taco meat and the cup each of Sour Cream and Salsa in your crockpot and leave on low for a scrumptious , hot, cheesey, taco-y, filling dip! (Our favorite way to enjoy it is on Tostito Scoops, but hey, have it your way!!)
~Maybe Velveeta or Tostito should be sending me (and Jeni – of course) some FREE coupons…don-cha’ think??
