Game Day Taco Bean Dip
from the kitchen of Cathy Rueter
Prep time: approx. 10 minutes. Cook time: less than 10 minutes.
Cooking necessities: Large microwavable bowl
Ingredients for microwave mix:
1 lb ground beef, cooked and any grease drained
1 packet favorite taco seasoning
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shreds
1 can (10 oz.) diced tomato and green chili, drained
1 can (15.5 oz.) black beans, drained
1/2 cup water
Other ingredients (do NOT add these to the microwave mix):
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 bag of tortilla strip chips (our favorite is the 24 oz. size Pueblo Lindo Restaurant Tortilla Strips Party Size bag from Aldi’s – make 2-3 batches of the dip for a whole bag)
Mix all the microwave mix ingredients together. (Reserve ‘other’ ingredients for end result.)
Microwave mix on high for three (3) minutes.
Microwave on high for two (2) to three (3) minutes more. Stir. Carefully remove from microwave – bowl will likely be very hot!
Scoop mix onto serving plates and top with heaping tablespoonful of Greek yogurt. Place large handful of tortilla strip chips on plate and serve.
Can be served with lettuce shreds, fresh diced tomatoes, diced onion, black olives, etc.
Serve and enjoy!
