I first shared Deli­cious 10-Minute Taco Dip, with my first blog audi­ence, in 2009. It is so scrump­tious and super easy to make. Even your kids will become experts at mak­ing this fam­i­ly favorite snack that can eas­i­ly become a sim­ple Sun­day Sup­per. It’s always a hit at par­ties, too. You’re going to be asked for the recipe over and over.

When I start­ed rework­ing the recipe post, to share with all of you, I could­n’t bring myself to change the pic­tures. lol My grand­daugh­ters helped me do revised pic­tures in 2014, to update my orig­i­nal post. Today, when I look at the pho­tos it makes me very hap­py and nos­tal­gic. I decid­ed to use them, again. So for­give the pho­tog­ra­phy skills and enjoy my beau­ti­ful grands as they put this recipe togeth­er. I was­n’t kid­ding when I said it was simple.

  • Yield: 10 -12 serv­ings 1x


Easy, deli­cious and fast to get on the table.  This taco dip recipe is a fam­i­ly favorite!


Units Scale
  • 12 cups home­made refried beans, (amount is a per­son­al pref­er­ence and canned can be substituted)
  • (1) 16 oz car­ton sour cream
  • 4 Table­spoons home­made taco sea­son­ing or 1 pack­et (any brand) taco sea­son­ing mix
  • 1 to 2 cups grat­ed ched­dar cheese, (we tend to lean toward the “more is bet­ter” side of cheese — lol)
  • 1 or 2 chopped tomatoes
  • 2 green onions with tops, chopped


  1. Start by spread­ing the refried beans onto a plat­ter or serv­ing tray. Spread them out to with­in an inch or so of the edge and try to make the lay­er a uni­form thick­ness across the plate.
  2. For the sec­ond lay­er, use a small mix­ing bowl and stir the sour cream and taco sea­son­ing togeth­er.  Spread over the refried beans.
  3. Top the sour cream mix­ture with a gen­er­ous lay­er of shred­ded ched­dar cheese.
  4. Dice toma­toes and spread over the cheese layer.
  5. Top it off with the diced green onions and it will look as pret­ty and appe­tiz­ing as it is delicious!
  6. It’s ready to eat right now, but we think it’s best served cold, so allow some time for it to sit in the fridge.
  7. Serve with your favorite tor­tilla or corn chips.
