Hot Taco Dip with Meat

Taco Dip Recipes

This hot taco dip with meat is a family favorite. 

My kids lovingly call this dip, “Tijuana Poop”.  Don’t let the nick name scare you off, though.  The dip may be nothing special to look at but it’s amazing to eat!  

Most of the time when I make this dip, I’ll double it so we have some leftovers.

Hot Taco Dip with Ground Meat Ingredients

  • Ground beef
  • Canned refried beans
  • Food Processor Salsa or your favorite premade salsa
  • Hot sauce
  • Cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Spices or a premade pack of taco seasoning

The combo of all these ingredients equal a hot Mexican dip that reminds me of a delicious loaded burrito.

How to Make Hot Taco Dip with Meat Recipe

This recipe calls for one pound of ground beef.  
I used my LEM grinder to grind up a tri-tip I found on sale at my local grocery store.

Taco Dip with Ground Beef

Cook the ground beef until done, and then add in the spices -OR- you could add in a pack of taco seasoning, but I prefer to add the spices.  

Stir in the spices and cook it a few minutes until it becomes fragrant.  At this point, you have regular taco meat.

Next, stir in the remaining ingredients; refried beans, sour cream, taco cheese, salsa (I used my food processor salsa recipe, I like the way the fresh cilantro looks in the recipe, but you could also use Pace salsa or some other salsa), and hot sauce. For this recipe, I used Tapatio hot sauce, but in the past, I’ve used a few packages of Taco Bell sauce.

Cook a few minutes until all the ingredients are combined, and the cheese has melted.
