1 cup of soup cream, really

soup cream? Doesn't anyone proof read the recipes before uploading?

I'd never heard of Texas Trash Dip before, but this recipe looks delicious! And it's super simple to make. I'll have to try it some time!

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, and this Texas Trash Dip is going to be the center of my family's celebration. I plan on adding ground beef to the recipe and riding it all the way to taco and burrito heaven for dinner. Some black bean salad on the side, guacamole and salsa with tortilla chips and we have our own little Fiesta going on.

This recipe is so indulgent. I could easily eat way too much of it!

I have never been a great fan of dip but this layered Texas trash dip is sounding good. Tortilla chips are one of my favorite snacks and here is a different way to eating them. I can eat them by the bag without anything.

The title for this recipe is interesting. Not sure why you would want to call any of your dishes trash. None the less, I had to read the ingredients and aside from the title, the dip does sound delicious.

Trash dip is definitely not what I'd call this yummy bean deliciousness...but I'm a little biased because I just love bean dip. For me personally, I think it would be easier to refry the beans and gradually add the cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar, and taco seasoning. You can probably even use the beans for a base to make burritos, then just add whatever fill-ins you're interested in. Either way, it all sounds delicious to me! (The save button is the plus in the grey box directly under the instructions ladies.)

I think I would definitely include some ground beef to the mix, or some chorizo. I'm not overly fond of the multi-grain tortilla chips and I'd prefer combining some regular tortilla chips with some blue corn or guacamole-flavored chips. The idea of adding some shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes (or even better, some chunky salsa) would make this even better. It would make for a great snack while watching television.

I enjoy a good taco dip especially the layered ones! I think I would add some sliced black olives to that list of add-ons like lettuce and tomatoes. Not sure if my family will all love the refried beans although I would love it for sure! It might be nice to switch that out with pulled pork or the ground beef. I also have been serving taco dips with the multigrain nacho chips and they hold up great.
