How to Make Easy Taco Bean Dip
In a small bowl, make the Pico by mixing together the tomatoes, cilantro, onion, and jalapeños.
In a serving dish, add the beans and spread into an even layer.
In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream and taco seasoning.
Add the sour cream on top of the beans and spread evenly. Top with the Pico, avocado, shredded cheese, and black olives. Serve with tortilla chips.
What can I use instead of making the Pico?
If you don’t want to make the Pico, you can use your favorite store bought salsa or Pico as well.
Can I add guacamole?
Yes, if you want to use guacamole instead of the avocado, you can do that as well.
What can I serve this with?
I love serving this Easy Taco Bean Dip with tortilla chips. You can use regular or blue!
Can I make this ahead of time?
Yes, if you want to make this ahead of time you can prep it all, cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge. If you are making your own Pico though, it can get watery if it sits too long. So, keep that in mind, and you could make the Pico ahead of time and just prep it right before serving. I haven’t tested storing this with store bought salsa, but that may be a better option if you need to make this ahead of time.
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
