Are you looking for a healthy lunch or appetizer for your New Year’s Eve celebration or the Super Bowl? Our Baked Taco Dip is quick, easy and very adaptable to fit to your family’s tastes. You can replace the black beans with refried beans, leave out the sour cream, add more chopped tomatoes and onions to topping, replace lettuce with spinach, or leave the recipe as is. It can be served as a stand-alone main dish, used as a potato topper, or served as a hot dip.
My grandchildren visited this week and we enjoyed the Baked Taco Dip over French fries (page 185 in our book). It was a hit!
Many of the ingredients listed in this recipe can be found in our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®. If time does not allow you to prepare these ingredients in advance, don’t let that stop you from making this delicious dip. Purchase as pure of ingredients as possible and enjoy!
