Hot apps and football go together like...hot apps and football! Our ooey-gooey Hot Taco Dip is peak comfort food and a great shareable dish to serve larger groups of people. The well-seasoned 'taco' filling layered with fresh chopped veggies, the right kick of spice, and tangy sour cream is a killer combination and an ideal dish for enjoying a fun fall afternoon filled with Sunday football. We love how easy this dish is to throw together before company arrives and how satisfied everyone will feel after devouring it. Be sure to pair the dip with your go-to tortilla or corn chips and serve to guests right out of the oven, as the cheese is bubbling. For all our low-carb friends out there, sub out the chips for a side of raw celery sticks, baby carrots, and bite-sized cauliflower pieces. Equally as delicious and slightly more nutritious.
