Homemade Salsa Taco Dip

Kristin Kiel


My family and friends love this dip. As soon as I set it down, it seems to disappear. A great dish to bring to a potluck.
I like to use a mix of red, orange and yellow bell peppers, because my husband doesn't like the green. I use Italian tomatoes because they aren't as juicy, but any would work. And, I vary the shredded cheese. I like using the Cracker Barrel Mexicana mix that's already shredded.
This is a great recipe to play around with, because any combinations will work.
