The Best Taco Dip

This is the best Taco Dip! Not only is it super easy, but a definite crowd pleaser! Perfect for parties, picnics, or for when the craving for taco dip hits!


I don’t often like to use the term “the best” unless it REALLY is. This taco dip definitely gets that title; it’s truly the BEST Taco Dip! Not only is this taco dip the best, but it’s so easy too! Don’t you love when things are not only easy, but yummy too? I do!

The dip is simply 3, maybe 4 ingredients if you count salt. It’s just cream cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning, and a pinch of salt. That’s it! Easy peasy right? So you could just make that part of the dip if you wanted. Perfect for veggies or chips. If that’s not good enough, I take this dip to another level of yumminess with adding all the yummy taco toppings like, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and of course cheese.



Here are a few of my favorite toppings to use:

  • shredded lettuce – a must!
  • shredded cheese – a must too!
  • diced tomatoes
  • sliced black olives
  • diced red onion
  • sliced jalapeño

I typically do just lettuce, tomato, cheese and olives, but add any of these or whatever you like, you do you!

This taco dip is a total crowd pleaser! I just serve with with tortilla chips for your dipping pleasure!
