Recipe Success Tips
If you are making the dip the night before, hold off adding the iceberg lettuce. It doesn't stay crispy.
Add as many or as few toppings as you like. If you don't like too much heat, you'll want to use ½ a package of taco seasoning.
Adding the juice of half a lime adds a nice bit of tang.
If you want to reduce the calories in this dip. Swap use light cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese.
You can also substitute sour cream with Chobani Greek Yogurt. Unfortunately, I didn't have it on hand when I made this recipe, but I've used it quite a bit lately.
Chobani has a convenient squeezable Greek yogurt that is triple strained and, therefore, super thick and creamy, making it taste as good as sour cream. Best of all, it has about 75% less fat than regular sour cream.
Cheese. I strongly recommend using freshly shredded cheese. It's cheaper and doesn't have any ffillers you'll typically find in store-bought pre-shredded cheeses.
If you have leftover Taco Dip, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. When you're ready to serve it again, you can stir it up and add any additional toppings you like.
Alternatively, you can also use the leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or wraps or as a topping for baked potatoes or nachos.
