Taco Salad Dip

This recipe was submitted by Allison Addis of Abbeville, SC, in the Carolina Eats March Hoops Recipe Sweepstakes presented by Ingles.


2 lb ground hamburger

1 package Taco Seasoning

8 oz French Onion dip

8 oz cream cheese (softened)

Tyler Simpson Allstate 300x250 ad

Shredded lettuce

Diced fresh tomatoes

8 oz shredded cheese

1 cup finely chopped onion


  • Mix the hamburger meat and the taco mix according to package directions and set aside
  • Mix the onion dip and cream cheese together and spread in a 9”x13” casserole dish
  • Place a layer of each of the following atop the cream cheese layer: taco meat, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cheese
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour
  • Serve with Frito Lays “Big Scoops” or with taco shells

A note from Allison:  I am a diabetic, pre-transplant heart patient. This can easily be adapted by using low fat onion dip and cream cheese and using no sodium “Mrs. Dash” taco seasoning. This can be served as a dip with the chips, family style with taco shells or as a salad.
