This is a Mexican Dip recipe that we’ve been making in our family forever. It’s not fancy, but it’s delicious. We call it Almost a Meal Dip and that basically sums it up. I could (and have) continually dipped chips into this dip and had it as my entire meal.
Not much in this Mexican Dip recipe and I think that’s what makes it great. Simple, classic, and really good.
And chips, of course.
This Mexican Dip Recipe with ground beef is really easy to make. Basically, you layer all the ingredients and bake it in the oven. What comes out is a bubbly, cheesy, melty dip full of all the classic Mexican flavors we all love.
You start by cooking the ground beef in a skillet then adding the refried beans and mixing those together.
From there, just layer. Ground Beef/Refried Beans on the bottom, green chiles, taco sauce and cheese, Bake and dip.
Excellent question. Short answer- that’s how we’ve always done it. Long answer- The Taco Sauce seems to mix into the ground been while baking more and give it a spicy flavor. The salsa just doesn’t bake as well.
You can absolutely use salsa if you want, but the true way is with a bottle of Taco Sauce.
Give this Mexican Dip Recipe a try for your next gathering or if you are just in the mood to do some dipping for dinner.
