I seriously love this recipe.

Be warned though, it’s hard to stop at one serving. I could eat this stuff all day!

The cream cheese and sour cream make this recipe so creamy and melt in your mouth delicious.

You could serve this with tacos, quesadillas, mexican rice, burrito bowls, and more.

Try this cream cheese bean dip for your next party or just dinner at home.

I love a good sour cream dip and this one is no exception!

While you can make your own taco seasoning, I love the simplicity of using those already done for you taco seasoning packets you can buy at the store.

This ready comes together in less than 10 minutes then all you have to do is bake it until hot and bubbly!

You could easily make this ahead of time, cover and refrigerate, then bake when you are ready to serve it.

To reheat the dip, I just add a serving to a plate and microwave it until hot. It isn’t necessary to reheat this in the oven.
