Taco Dip/Salad

Celeste Garrison


I've been making this for just over 20 years; I'm always asked for the recipe :-)

Use this a a dip with wavy potato chips or tortilla chips; or fill a taco shell, or just pile on a plate and go at it!!

*I only use Old EL Paso Original Taco Seasoning Mix, I've tried other brands and people knew "something wasn't right", so I stick with that brand.

**I also only use Old EL Paso Refried Beans for the same reason as the taco seasoning mix.
