Tips For Success

Here are a few tips to set you up for success for making this 7 layer dip recipe with meat.

Make sure to drain off grease from the ground beef. Or it can affect the overall dip. I like to mix the meat with the beans to help incorporate the dip flavors.

You can add on a layer of lettuce and then add on the tomatoes, cheese, green onions and olives. It will add a nice crisp texture.

You can make a double batch if you want and reach for a larger pan, or use two pans.

Fresh veggies are best, make sure they are not wilting, as they will be the first to spoil in this dip.

Storing Taco Dip

If you do not eat all of this Mexican dip with ground beef it will store for 2-3 days in the fridge, in a covered or airtight container.

You will find the green onions become stronger as it sits in the fridge. I like to eat this within the first 2 days of making it.


Why is it called a layered dip?

You will add layer of ingredients into the pan. As you add each layer you spread it out evenly and move on to the next. So it creates a layered look.

Can I swap the ground beef in recipe?

You can do a vegetarian option by leaving out the meat, or reach for ground turkey, ground pork, or even ground chicken. Cook the meat as directed and ensure it is fully cooked.

Do you serve this ground beef dip recipe warm or cold?

You will serve this ground beef dip cold. You will find it can wilt and break down the sour cream, cheese and other toppings if you serve it warm.
