C & I were invited to a Super Bowl party back in February so I went looking for a new dip recipe to try. Of course, I found this on Pinterest from the blog My Kitchen Addiction. This is the link to the original recipe. I tweaked it a little to suit my taste and the ingredients I had and it turned out great. There were no leftovers at all to bring back so I know it was a success.
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 white onion, diced
1 tsp. dried minced garlic
8 ounces light cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup light ranch dressing
2 tbsp. taco seasoning
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a pie pan (or rectangle baking pan) with nonstick spray. The pan I used is about 6×8”. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef, onion and minced garlic until the beef is cooked through.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, ranch dressing, chili powder, and ground cumin. Add the beef mixture and half of the shredded cheese. Stir to combine. Pour that mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.
