Hot taco dip with ground beef is taco in a dip! A blend of taco seasoned cream cheese blend, taco meat, cheeses and taco toppings, this hot and cheesy dip will be a great additional to a party!


1 lb ground beef
10oz can of black beans, drained
8oz softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
2 packets of taco seasoning (you’ll use one packet for the ground beef and 1 tablespoon from the second packet for the cream cheese)
3/4 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Chopped lettuce, diced onions, diced tomatoes for topping


1. Heat a medium pan over medium heat and add the ground beef, cook until browned then drain the excess oil and return the meat to the pan. Season with the packet of taco seasoning according to package directions. Then, pour in the drained beans and stir so they are evenly dispersed through the taco meat.

2. While the meat is cooking, take a medium bowl and add the softened cream cheese and the sour cream. Stir until they are smooth and combined, then add 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning and mix so it’s evenly incorporated. Pour this cream cheese blend into the bottom of an oven safe baking dish.

3. When the taco meat is cooked and seasoned and the beans have been added, add it on top of the cream cheese blend in the baking dish. Then top with the shredded cheeses. Place under the broiler for approximately 3 minutes until the cheese is melted and beginning to get browned and bubbly. Remove from the broiler and top with the lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Serve immediately!


Make sure you don’t use more than 1 lb of ground beef. Using too much meat will mean there won’t be enough taco seasoning to properly season the meat.
