Game Day Snacks…Texas Taco Dip



I am all about repurposing leftovers into something new and just as tasty as the first time around.   When I make taco meat, I make it five pounds at a time, so I always have some in the freezer.   Today, I’ve got a super easy and delicious dip perfect for game day or any time!  

Here’s what you will need: DSC_0029


I use fat free refried beans and ground sirloin to keep it as healthy as possible.

 In a medium saucepan over medium-low  heat, combine the beans, water, spices, and salsa.  Heat until it bubbles up and the flavors combine.   DSC_0030


I decided to make two bowls of dip.  Layer the beans, followed by the left over taco meat (I usually heat mine in the microwave for a minute or two), and top with grated cheese.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until the dip is heated through and just starts to bubble around the edges (about 10-15 minutes).

Add some diced tomatoes and sour cream.  And anything else that might tickle your fancy! Serve warm with chips.  Yum!! DSC_0034 Here’s the printable:
