Chilled Taco Dip

I don't know about you, but I ALWAYS love a good dip.  My pant size says it's possible that I love dips a bit too much.  I've made a few Mexican inspired dips, but all of them have been served hot.  It was nice to change it up & make a cold dip...especially knowing my fiends and I would be chowing on this next to the pool on a hot summer day.  The original recipe was found at a little north of crazy.  I modified her "Gone in a Blink Nacho Dip" by adding seasoned ground turkey.  To me, it became more of a "taco" dip than nacho...but does the name really matter when you taste AWESOME? No, it does not.  It was super easy to make & my friends gobbled it up QUICKLY.  I considered adding a few veggies to the dip, but then felt it was better to keep it simple. This will definitely be made again!

Chilled Taco Dip
Serves: 8-10
Cook time according to a little north of crazy? 40 mins
Cook time according to Rachel?  40 mins
How difficult was this for Rachel? Easy!


1 pkg light cream cheese
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
1 jar salsa
1/5 cups shredded cheese (I used cheddar & mozzarella)
1 pkg ground turkey (I used pre-seasoned, if you use unseasoned, you will need 1.5 pkgs taco seasoning)


In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey then drain.

 If your meat is unseasoned, once turkey is browned, drain & mix 1 package of seasoning.

Once meat is cooked & seasoned, place evenly in the bottom of a baking dish.  

Place meat in the fridge for 20 mins to cool.
While meat is cooling, in a medium sized mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream until completely mixed through. 
Add in 1/2 pkg taco seasoning & mix well. 
Please ignore this horrible pic
Once the meat is completely cooled, spread the cream cheese sour cream mixture evenly over the meat.
Pour entire jar of salsa on top
Then add on the cheese
