This taco dip recipe is relatively easy to prepare. Just mix together the taco sauce, cream cheese and sour cream base the day before your party to let the flavors really combine. After you’re done mixing, keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble the whole dish. If you follow this method, all you have to worry about when your guests arrive is tossing in lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. But of course, you can add on any other toppings that fit your palate, such as jalapeños, bell peppers, olives or anything you have in your pantry.
You can certainly serve this dip with some classic tortilla chips that you can make in your air fryer. Or add some flavors by scooping your dip with Doritos or Fritos in whatever flavor you love the most. If you have leftover food scraps from previous meals, why not make these colorful mixed root veggie chips to also serve on the side with your dip.
