Taco Dip Recipe with Meat and Beans:

This is Aunt Peggy’s taco dip with refried beans that she brings to all our family gatherings. I made this as a main course the other day (hey – it was football Sunday, so logically it made sense).  My daughter was practically licking her plate.

This is a good option for a party or pitch-in because it holds heat really well. Bake it at home, put in an insulated carrier and out the door you go.  Plus, you can make the entire dip ahead of time (minus baking).  Cover, and store in the fridge.  Right before serving, put it in the oven.  It might take a few extra minutes to heat through when you are heating from cold.

This recipe is easily doubled to use an entire can of re-fried beans, container or sour cream and a 16 oz jar of Ortega. We use an extra pound of ground beef too when we double, but you don’t have to. Instead of an 8 x 8 inch or 2 quart pan, use a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.

Taco Dip with Refried Beans

On Christmas last year, we decided to snack on appetizers all day, so Megan made a double batch of this dip and used two dishes so that we could heat up a second batch later in the day. It worked out perfectly! Prep it all at once to save time (and dishes)!

It can be a bit tricky to spread the sour cream over the meat and bean mixture, so do yourself a favor and get a flat edged spatula which is also used to spread icing! On a side note, I freeze the rest of the can of beans and use it later in another recipe.

Notes About Hot Taco Dip Recipe with Meat and Beans:

  • If you don’t want to have a half of a can of beans or a half a container of sour cream sitting around, then go ahead and double the entire recipe, and cook in a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  • Worried about calories? Try low fat or fat free sour cream and fat free re-fried beans.  Ground turkey can be substituted for the ground beef too.
  • Like a spicier taco ground beef dip?  Use Medium Ortega Taco Sauce instead of mild.
  • I like to substitute in Mexican Quesadilla Melting Cheese for cheddar cheese. It melts great. Or use your favorite type of shredded cheese.
  • Short on time? Make this entire dip the night before, cover and refrigerate.  Heat right before serving. It may take a few extra minutes in the oven if you are cooking from cold.
  • This hot layered Mexican dip with ground beef is the perfect pitch-in recipe.  Bake at home, and put covered in an insulated carrier.  It will stay hot for a long time.
  • I am crazy for taco dips.  A couple of my other favorites are Cheesy Taco Dip and Crock Pot Sausage Queso.
