How To Make The Layered Beef Taco Dip

Next, brown ground beef with an onion before adding Ortega® Fire-Roasted Green Chiles, Ortega® Taco Seasoning Mix, and Ortega® Black Beans. Add this juicy beef and bean mixture over the cream cheese and sour cream.
Top with shredded cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, and Ortega® Medium Taco Sauce to really bring out the Mexican-inspired flavors in this easy layered dip.

How Does The Dip Taste
Because of the layers in this dip, you’re getting the best of all worlds. The cool cream cheese and creamy sour cream spiked with taco seasoning is a perfect contrast to the warm beef and tender black beans.
The bits of onions and green chiles add extra flavor and texture. Even though the chiles are fire-roasted, we didn’t find the dip spicy. Super flavorful indeed but not spicy.
The shredded cheese, juicy tomatoes, and cilantro are welcome bursts of freshness in contrast to the salty tortilla chips. They’re the perfect scoopers to help you savor this satisfying, filling, and comfort food dip.
I can assure you that if I ran into this dip at a Cinco de Mayo party, I would babysit it all night long and not leave it’s side. The Ortega products help make my favorite Mexican recipes extra delicious.

I garnished the dip with tomatoes, cilantro, and taco sauce, but you can get super creative here.
