Taco Salad and leftovers....

I recently made Taco Salads for dinner.....

Simply some ground beef simmered in taco seasoning tossed on a salad of lettuce, peppers, onions, tomatoes, salsa and cheese - and some Fritos tossed in for crunch!

But I had some leftover taco seasoned beef.... I spread some cream cheese in the bottom of a small baking dish....

...topped it with the leftover beef...

...spread some salsa on top...

...and finished it off with a sprinkling of shredded pepper jack cheese...

I baked it the next day for 25 min at 350' and had a delicious taco dip for Happy Hour!!

I served it with  Hint Of Lime tortilla chips....

We just scooped some out onto my new MacKenzie Childs Canape Plates...

...and it was delish!!

From now on I will cook a little extra Taco meat when I make taco salad and use the leftover to make this again!!

 Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm all about tacos - that looks delightful, just begging for a margarita with fresh lime!

  2. YUM! I love taco salad and that dish looks amazing. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. We love taco salad here too but haven't had it for a while. Great way to use up the leftover beef, your Happy Hour Dip looks delish. Hope you had a margarita!

  4. I love taco salad, and how clever to turn it into a dip! It is fajita night at my house I think I'll make a refried bean dip to add to the menu, thanks Patti!

  5. Perfection. It reminds me growing up, sometimes my mom would make tacos with Fritos.
