Easy, delicious, and fast to get on the table.  This simple taco dip recipe is a family favorite!  It’s great as an appetizer, a snack, or even a no-fuss Sunday supper.


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 taco seasoning mix)
  • 1 to 2 cups Cheddar cheese, extra sharp & hand-grated (We tend to lean toward the “more is better” side of cheese – lol)
  • 1 or 2 large Tomatoes, chopped (or grape tomatoes quartered. At least 1 cup of 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.
