Boat Day Taco Dip

Easy meatless taco dip! This is my favorite dip to bring on out on the water for a boat day or beach day! Easily portable and ridiculous delicious.  It’s so darn good you’ll never miss the beans and meat, actually I prefer it this way over the bean or meat taco dip. Fresh, perfect combination of flavors & spice, creamy deliciousness! Trust me, you bring this to a party and it’ll be gone in minutes! MAKE IT!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Cream Cheese: I personally love Temp Tee whipped cream cheese and that is what I use, but any cream cheese will work. Make sure you let it sit out on the counter and get to room temperature before you begin prepping.
  • Cheese: For best results SHRED your own cheese! I used an 8 oz. block of Kraft Cheddar Monterey cheese.
  • Tomatoes: Any kind of tomato will work, but plum tomatoes are less juicy so I prefer to use them for this dip so it does not get soggy. 2 plum tomatoes perfectly!
  • Serve With: I like to use Frito scoops because they are sturdy & delicious! You can use any chip you want, though.
