Taco Salad Dip

Taco Salad Dip
Serves 8
A variation of the well-known Seven Layer Dip, this recipe has no refried beans and is a snap to put together. It was given to me several years ago and continues to be a crowd pleaser today. Note that this dip tastes best if you let the cream cheese mixture sit about an hour or two before serving to allow the flavors to blend. Don’t worry if you don’t have time though — it also tastes great when served immediately
