"Just change the name and bring this dish along to the next party, and you are guaranteed to be getting noticed. This taco dip is simple and lasting. Make a day or two before and just heat it up 15 minutes before serving. Be prepared for compliments!!! Serve with tortilla chips."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the ground buffalo until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 cup water and taco seasoning. Reduce heat to low and simmer until reduced, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place the cream cheese and 1/4 cup water in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl; heat in the microwave, stirring occasionally, until softened and easily spread, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Spread the cooled buffalo meat on the bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan or baking dish, then spread the cream cheese mixture over the meat. Pour the salsa in an even layer over the cream cheese, and top with the Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese melts and is bubbly, about 15 minutes.

Awesome dip! And the ground bison makes it lower in fat, lower in calories and "healthy." Okay, maybe not, but it tastes great!

This was really good dip! It all got eaten and was complimented many times. I made a few adjustments to accommodate what I had in the pantry: I used ground turkey instead of ground buffalo and u...
