A Mean Meat & Bean Taco Dip

I made this dip over the weekend to go alongside our two dishes of enchiladas. I will have to say I'll be making it again...even if enchiladas aren't on the menu. It is that good.

It's also a great side dish or appetizer to make to use up leftovers - taco meat, beans, cheese, salsa, shredded lettuce...you get the picture, right?

2 cups of taco meat (beef or chicken)
1 cup refried beans
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced black olives

Layer ingredients in an 8x8 baking dish in the order listed. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until melted. Serve with tortilla chips as a side, or with your favorite Mexican meal.

Well, two more days of work and then off 11 days for Christmas! Lucky me! Although, we will be busy traveling, spending time with both families, squeezing in appointments while I'm off work, and just hanging out!

I'm looking forward to a week one-on-one with the little man, maybe he and I will come up with some new recipes???

  2. I love that dip!! I actually had a taco salad for my lunch today with leftover taco meat - I mixed two tablespoons of fat free ranch with 2 tablespoons hot taco sauce for my dressing - it was delicious and only 1 point for the dressing!

    Enjoy your time off! After today I am off until Monday - looking forward to it!

  3. I have a lot of time off too!! It's awesome isn't it :-) I think this will be the first time the hubby and I have had 2 weeks off and spent them at home (but that might change if we can find a last minute trip!!)
