A delicious blend of spices can perk up so many items to make them irresistible.
Taco seasoning can be used for way more than making tacos.
Add a couple tablespoons to sour cream and cream cheese you’ll have a really tasty dip perfect with tortilla chips, taquitos, tamales and if you need a cute dip platter here is what you can make it look like.
You can make this taco seasoning mix in a large quantity, just multiply the ingredients to make the portion you want. The quantity that is given is for about 6 tablespoons, the jar you are seeing is not a big jar, it’s a salt shaker that looks like a mason jar.
You can sprinkle this with oil and vinegar salad dressing and add some tortilla chips for a fun taco flavored salad.

I went through my recipe box to grab a photo of the taco dip I’ve been making for YEARS, this photo is from 1994. Everyone loves this taco dip. I picked up a round plastic tray that had an edge that is an inch high, great for keeping all the tip on the platter including the toppings.
I use 8oz cream cheese, 16 oz sour cream 3 tablespoon taco seasoning whipped up smooth then spread on a platter.
For the toppings, I use cherry tomatoes cut in half, shredded lettuce and diced scallions, sliced black olives, pickled jalapenos, and cheddar cheese. You can vary the items to what you have on hand, it’s a great last-minute dip.
