I bought this new cookbook this week and gave it a try tonight. It looks like it has a ton of really good recipes in it and we're going to try a few out this week.
Tonight we tried Easy Taco Dip (Page 39). It is listed under the appetizer section, but we used it as taco meet for burritos / nachos instead of as a dip. It was VERY tasty and made just enough for a family of 3 w/ leftovers for one more meal.
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup mild taco sauce
1 can (4 oz) diced mild green chilies
1 can (4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Mexican Style cheese blend
1. Brown ground beef. Drain & discard fat. Transfer to crock pot.
2. Add corn, onion, salsa, taco sauce, chilies, and olives. Mix well. Cover, cook on LOW 2-3 hours.
3. Just before serving, stir in cheese. Serve with tortilla chips and sour cream.
Tip: To serve this dip hot through an entire party, leave it in the crock pot on the LOW or WARM setting.
