Easy Taco Bean Dip Recipe

This Easy Taco Dip is one of our all-time favorite tailgating dips.  I’ve been making a version of this dip for years.  It is easy to make and it is always a hit.  I changed it up this time and added some ground beef.  I think the ground beef really put this dip over the top.  This dip can be assembled ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it.  We served the dip with Fritos, but tortilla chips would be good too.

How to Make Baked Taco Dip

This dip is super duper easy to make. Start with browning some ground beef. Combine the cooked beef with a can of refried beans and taco seasoning. Spread the mixture into the bottom of a baking dish. Top with sour cream and cheese. Pop the dish in the oven and bake until bubbly.

  • Can omit the beef for a vegetarian dish.
  • I use fat-free baked beans.
  • Here is our recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning: https://www.plainchicken.com/homemade-taco-seasoning/
  • You can use any type of cheese that you prefer.
  • Feel free to add onions, olives, bell peppers to the dip.
  • Can Taco Dip be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the dip ahead of time and refrigerate up to 2 days before baking.
  • Can Taco Dip be made in the slow cooker? Yes! Layer the dip in the crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW until warm.

  1. I make a cold dip actually which so many love as well…Layer as this order:

    8oz soft cream cheese(not whipped)
    8oz Chili sauce
    8oz Shredded Cheddar
    8oz Shredded Mozzarella or Monterey Jack
    1 Lg green bell pepper(diced fine)
    1 lg red bell pepper (diced fine)
    1 med white onion (diced fine)
    1 med red onion (diced fine)

    Serve with Frito Lay scoops corn chips or Tostito scoops

  2. I subbed ground turkey for beef, non-fat greek yogurt for sour cream, and cut the cheese from 2 cups to about 1 1/4 of reduced fat cheese. Plus, added a 4 oz can of diced green chilis to the meat mixture and used my own taco seasoning instead of a store bought packet. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

  3. I made this last night for the Cowboys football season opener and it was GREAT!!! Husband loved it AND there's leftovers!! W00t!!

  4. I have a cold version of this dip, layered in a 13×9 pan. It's delish:
    fat free refried beans
    low-fat sour cream mixed w/a packet of taco seasoning
    shredded cheese
    green onions

    I used to put salsa and shredded lettuce in between the cheese and the sour cream layer, but it gets too soggy, I think.

  5. Our version of this dip is a can of prepared chili, cream cheese, shredded cheese and green onions. Serve with Tortilla Chips.
    Another cream cheese dip I love is:
    1 8 oz cream cheese, 2 packages of Parmesan (the small packages), one medium red onion chopped finely. Mix all together, heat in 350 oven until cheese mixture is bubbly. Serve with flavored crackers, or Ritz.

    1. i like your version…above looks good but sour cream tends to curdle in the oven opposed to cream cheese…i will be trying yours this weekend! Nascar snacks! 😉
