Quick and Creamy Easy Taco Dip

My husband and I used to make it on the weekends when we were having a movie night. The leftovers which there were rarely ever any of, we used for meals throughout the week. (more ideas for that below)

Tonight we made this delicious dip, and thoroughly enjoyed it with some chips and crackers. But we have made this dip for so many other things.

This goes great on burgers, hot dogs and even on veggies. I mean, honestly anything with cheese tends to make things better! 

You can serve it with pasta, rice and more.

My teens adore it with burgers and hot dogs. Might be their favorite way to enjoy it. 

I enjoy it with wraps. On sandwiches, with tacos. It’s incredible! 

Yum!
