Best Taco Dip Recipe
Oh for heavens sake, this easy, cold taco dip blew our minds! So, you noticed that I said “cold” taco dip recipe, right? This is the best taco dip recipe all around in my humble opinion, but if you're looking for a hot taco dip recipe, this hot taco dip is the one to hit up.
All of my sources tell me it's the best hot taco dip of its kind, however, I still stand by my opinion that this one right here is the best cold taco dip appetizer you're going to find on the interwebs. 🙂
I first found this recipe when it was included in my friend Tiffany's Meal Plan. She makes Meal Plans for busy people like us. You can see all of her meal plans here.

Anyhow, this taco dip is a combination of veggies, spices, juices and, as you can see some fun additions with the edible field goals and the goal lines made out of sour cream – seriously? If this doesn't scream football themed appetizer or game day recipes, well, then I'm just not sure what will 😉 This could literally pass as a football party decoration… until it's been dup into … so there's that 😉
Ok, so are you ready for the recipe? Head on over to Tiffany's blog HERE to get the full recipe and you're ready to rock and roll.
How to make this Taco Dip Recipe on the Ketogenic Diet Foods Diet
Are you following the Keto Diet Food Plan? The great news for you is that this is low carb appetizer fits into the Keto Diet Menu too!
If you're looking for Keto friendly snacks, this low carbohydrate appetizer is a great option. The one big change that you'll want to make it instead of using tortilla chips, use lettuce wraps instead. Or, if you're feeling extra motivated to make this one of your go-to Keto approved appetizers, try making these Low Carb Tortilla Chips. YUM!
And, unfortunately, to be a Keto appetizer, you'll want to cut out the refried beans as well. This dip would still be fantastic without the beans and tortilla chips. Promise!
These ingredients aren't on the approved Keto ingredient list, but everything else in this recipe is Keto approved! Awesome, ‘eh?!
How to make this Layered Taco Dip Recipe Healthier
If you're still with your New Years resolutions (WOW if you are 😉 ) then using baked tortilla chips is a great way to lighten this taco dip up. And, those baked tortilla chips are good, too!
Without adding in any of the cream cheese, (which is a usual suspect in these types of cold taco dip recipes) makes this a tad bit healthier as well! But, although you don't have any cream cheese, sour cream takes its spot, so going with a reduced fat sour cream will give you even less calories and make this a “skinny taco dip” – sweet!
And, it you really, really wanted to get some more greens in your diet, adding in some shredded lettuce is also an option. I would put the lettuce on top of the guacamole layer and under the sour cream field goal lines layer. You could even use the remainder of the pepper or diced tomatoes to spell out “go team” on top of the field goal lines or something similar – that would be cute!
The taco seasoning mix has barely anything in it but spices, so we know we're good there, right?!
I would encourage you to leave in the red pepper in the recipe, but if you don't like red pepper, we can substitute green pepper in its place. Or, diced tomatoes would be good as well.
If you like low carb appetizers, you might also really love this real cheese queso dip!
