Recipe Adapted from the Pampered Chef's "Touchdown Taco Dip"

Want to make it spicier? Add some Tabasco or Tapatío sauce to the cream mixture. You can also sprinkle some on top after it comes out of the oven, before you put on the toppings.


Step 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2
In bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream, making sure that the cream cheese is mixed in completely and that there are no cream cheese clumps.
Step 3
Add in cilantro paste, taco seasoning, and garlic. Combine well.
Step 4
In a shallow baking dish (I used a 9 inch round cake pan), spread beans evenly. Then spread the sour cream mixture over the beans. Top with shredded cheese.
Step 5
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until center is bubbly and cheese is completely melted.
Step 6
Remove from oven and top with tomato, green onions, and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.
