Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 container (16 oz.) sour cream
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • Tortilla chips, for serving
  • 1 cup lettuce, shredded or chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 1 chopped red, orange or yellow pepper (or a combination)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • Jalapeños
  • Hot sauce
  • Black olives

Directions

  • Beat together the cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning by hand or with a hand mixer until thoroughly combined.
  • Spread the mix onto a large plate creating a smooth layer with a rubber spatula.
  • Assemble just before serving by adding your toppings of choice: lettuce, sharp cheddar cheese, green onions, peppers, cilantro, jalapeños, a dash of hot sauce and black olives.
