Baked Taco Dip Recipe

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Spread cream cheese in an even layer in the bottom of an 8×8-inch baking dish.
  3. Cook and stir beef in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes. Add water and taco seasoning mix; stir. Simmer until most of the liquid evaporates, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Spread meat mixture over the cream cheese in the baking dish. Pour salsa over meat mixture. Top with Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake taco dip in preheated oven until bubbling and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
