Mount Diablo Taco Dip

Kathie Carr


When I lived in Lafayette, CA, I learned to make this dip. It was originally from a newspaper recipe but everyone seemed to have their own version.

The dip got its local name from Mount Diablo, the beautiful mountain over-looking the Walnut Creek-Lafayette area.
