  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning or 1 store-bought packet
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • Shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise and taco seasoning until thoroughly blended.

  2. Spread in a square casserole dish. Top with the shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, and shredded cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Leftovers can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

  • Sour Cream: You can substitute plain Greek yogurt.
  • Mayonnaise: If you have an aversion to mayonnaise and/or you like more tang, substitute room temperature cream cheese.
  • Taco Seasoning: You can use store-bought or make your own homemade taco seasoning mix (I always have a large jar of it in my pantry!).
  • Additional Topping Ideas: Olives, jalapenos, guacamole, diced avocado, salsa, pico de gallo, chopped red onion, cilantro, green onion, and black beans.
  • Storing: Keep the dip covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Sitting Out: Since there is dairy in the base, the dip should not sit out at room temperature for longer than 2 hours.
  • Making Ahead: If you wanting to prep ahead you can easily make this taco dip up to 3 days in advance, simply store covered in the refrigerator.
