  • 1.25 oz taco seasoning packet
  • 1 ½ cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 4 oz can sliced black olives
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced

  • In a medium bowl mix cream cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning.

To Create A Warm Dip:
Layer creamy base into an oven safe baking dish, like a pie plate. Top with cheese and bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes. Top with desired toppings. 
To add meat to the dip, place a layer of cooked taco meat, ground beef, or shredded chicken on top of the creamy base. Top with cheese. Follow warming instructions above.
