I've been making this dip for 25 years and it never fails to have everyone asking for the recipe. My son often tells me I should market and sell it!

How to Make Karen's Ultimate Taco Dip


  1. I don't really have a set recipe for the taco dip, I kind of wing it, every time its different ingredients! I use all mild sauces but it’s up to you how hot you want it and what brands you like. I like Taco Bell taco seasoning mix and Salsa or Fridays Salsa and Pace Picante, I have also made homemade salsa when I have the time. Following is the basic quick recipe for a regular size crockpot full:
  2. -Brown Ground Beef/Ground Sausage/Chicken, drain, add taco seasoning mix and 1/2 cup water, mix well and simmer for a couple minutes
    -Cook rice according to package
    -Pour Salsa and Picante in crockpot, mix well, add cheeses, mix well then add meat and rice and mix well
    -Put crockpot on high until it bubbles then reduce to low and cook for at least 2-4 hours stirring occasionally, top with sour cream and some more shredded sharp cheddar, you can keep in the crockpot on warm and serve with Tortilla chips (I prefer the Golden or Wheat ones)
