Taco Dip Recipe

Loaded with all of your favorite taco toppings, this creamy taco flavored dip is perfect for dipping with tortilla chips. We love this appetizer for parties and get togethers.

We have a few Mexican style dips that make for great appetizers, or sides for Mexican meals. If we don’t make Taco Dip, it’s usually Cream Cheese Bean Dip or Queso.

Dip made in 5 minutes!

Taco Tuesday just got a whole lot easier with this quick and delectable dip (we have so many favorites like our 7 Layer Bean Dip and Queso Blanco). It has all the flavors and ingredients of tacos but in dip form. It’s a great dip for sharing with friends which means it’s great to bring to parties or a game day dinner!

You know what else is great about taco dip? It’s also a no-bake recipe which makes it even more simple. Yes, please! You can throw this recipe together in 5 minutes. I like to keep all of these ingredients on hand so when I have friends or family show up unexpectedly, I can make this in no time.

Dipping chip in taco dip with cream cheese


Can you make taco dip ahead of time? Mix the cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning together. Keep this mixture in the fridge the night before you need to serve it. Prepare the rest of the ingredients and keep them separate and in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble the dip and serve.

How long can it sit out? Make sure your taco dip doesn’t sit out on the counter for more than 2 hours. Keep it covered in the fridge if you want to eat some later in the day. It will last in the fridge for 3-4 days.
