When it comes to flavor this tasty and incredibly flavorful Taco Style Cream Cheese Dip is the way to go.
Not only that it is extremely delicious, but easy as well. All you need a couple of amazing ingredients, top it with whatever you usually top your tacos and you are done.

Ingredients

  • Mission® Thin & Crispy Tortilla Chips, 9 oz
  • 2 sticks of cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 pouch taco seasoning
  • Toppings:
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 1/2 cups assorted tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4-1/2 jalapeño, optional
  • 1/2 cup pitted black olives, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, add softened cream cheese, sour cream, and mild taco seasoning. Using electric mixture, if possible, combine all the ingredients together until it is smooth in texture.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the serving dish and add all desirable toppings, preferably fresh.
  3. I used toppings that we usually add to our tacos, so it made perfect sense to add lettuce, tomatoes, bell pepper, jalapeño and black olives and serve it with our favorite restaurant-style Mission Thin & Crispy Tortilla Chips.
  4. Keep the dip cold before serving.

Notes

  • Refrigerate dip if you are not going to serve it right away.
  • For the best taste, use whole milk dairy products.
  • Use fresh ingredients for the toppings, as they are preferably the best to make this dip colorful and at the same time, beautiful and tasty.
  • You may make your own taco seasoning.
  • Add more Sour cream if needed
  • Fast way to bring cream cheese to room temperature: Take the cheese block out of the paper carton package, then unopened cheese, place in the warm, almost hot water for about 5 minutes.

You can also prepare your own chickpeas just by soaking and then cooking them, but for this one, I used Organic chickpeas from the can.

However, in the next post, I will show you a delicious dip, another version of hummus that is made with chickpeas from scratch.

My kids loved this. I have told Daniel, my youngest one that this hummus is a “purple cheese”. He was more than happy to try it, but as soon as he gave me a thumbs up I told him it was made with beets.

Which he assumed, but I didn’t confirm. On the other note, my Nebs and I could NOT stop eating.

Simple and delicious recipe for Hummus with Beets

I did not have any crackers, so I had to improvise. I took tortillas and cut them into triangles.

You could fry them up, but I baked it for a couple of minutes until it became crunchy. Man, it was really good!

Serve it with some pita bread, or crackers and enjoy this delicious and healthy dip with your loved ones this winter season.

Hummus with Beets

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Easy and tasty dip idea

Ingredients

  • 3 smaller purple Beets or 1 large
  • 1 cup 165g. Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) /cooked
  • 2 tbsp. 28g. Tahini
  • 2-3 garlic cloves crushed and peeled
  • 2-3 tbsp. 29-44 ml Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp. 44ml Water
  • 1/2 tsp. 1g Allspice
  • Juice of 1 lemon ripe
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F (232C). Wash beets and cut both ends, then wrap in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake/roast beets for 45 minutes. Remove from the alum. Foil (allow foil to cool down for at least a couple of minutes, so it is easier to handle hot beets, and also beets will steam up). When you unwrap, just peel the skin. If you are using bigger beet, then slice it into quarters for easier blending.
  2. In your food processor or a blender, place all the ingredients listed above. Add salt to taste. I would start with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Blend/process, taste and see if you need to add more.
  3. Garnish: I reserved some of the beets and chickpeas. Simply just dice beets and place on top and add a couple of chickpeas, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of allspice. You can certainly add chopped parsley, toasted sesame seeds, etc.

Notes

Leftovers: Refrigerate for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Tahini: Sesame Seed Paste. A bit thinner than Peanut butter consistency, but looks very much like peanut butter.

Try to get Organic Tahini, or make it yourself. Let me know down in the comments if you would like that recipe.
