Taco Dip with Ground Beef

You’ll love this taco dip with ground beef! All 5 of us love it! I’ve made it as a snack AND as a dinner served in bowls with a few chips on top. Topped with ooey gooey cheese on top it’s a family fave. (affiliate links present)

I got this recipe from  The Simple Kitchen cookbook, she calls it Cheesy Taco Skillet. There are many other great recipes in it and this is just one we loved. If you love easy but delicious comfort foods you’ve gotta’ check it out. 😉

Call it what you will, but seriously you can just call it delicious if you ask me. Add what you wish really. If you like heat you could easily dice up a jalapeno and add that in when you are letting it bubble up, if you need it to be dairy free (like my husband), just leave the cheese off or use a cheese alternative you like.

I love sour cream and guacamole when it comes to Mexican style foods, so I put a dollop of each on top when I serve this in individual bowls…delish!!

cast iron skillet

It’s as easy as throwing everything into a skillet (or cast iron pan like we did here), stirring, and topping it with additional cheese, chives, guacamole, sour cream, or any other addition you think sounds yummy.

Taco Dip with Ground Beef 2

Serve it with a bowl of chips on the side and just put your cast iron skillet right there on your island where all the other snacks are, on a trivet of course.

The other great thing about cooking in cast iron is it actually looks pretty cool served right in the skillet!

If you’re looking for another easy appetizer to serve along side this one for a large gathering try our cheesy chili dip or serve our cheesy crockpot lasagna casserole too.
