Touchdown Taco Dip

This is the original, Pampered Chef, version of my famous layer dip that is requested at almost any event I attend. I now claim it as my own because I have tweaked the recipe enough to make it my own. This is seriously the easiest recipe and can be double or even tripled depending on the size of the crowd. You can add or omit as you please, creating your own special recipe. I have added chicken, used garlic powder for a quick alternative to fresh, added extra cream cheese, omitted the taco seasoning, served with a side of fresh guacamole, the variations can go on and on .... I make this year round and it is perfect for the fall football season! Guaranteed a hit at your next event!! Be sure to let me know if you try this recipe - comments are so much appreciated here on my blog!!

Touchdown Taco Dip

  • 1 can sliced black olives

1. Spread the refried beans in a square stone baker (or a 9-inch square baking dish)

Here is what I am thinking...you should get on the next plane out of there and come here for the weekend. Sure your weekend will not entail casinos and nightclubs but I promise that I will provide hours of entertainment...I mean, don't you want to see me trying to get a mattress up a flight of stairs?
And I am just going to have to check your friend out in regards to the address change. And keep an eye out for your note from me with whatever I end up choosing!!
Love ya!!
