Mechelle's not so secret anymore Taco Dip

Mechelle Brown


This recipe came together when I needed a dish to pass at a potluck party. To my surprise it was a hit and continues to this day to be one of my most asked for recipes. The beauty of this dish is two things, you can make it as hot or mild as you like and it is made in the microwave in just 1 bowl.
