Be sure to make a double batch-this one will go quick! Great appetizer!

It was only good straight out of the oven. As soon as the cheese cools off it hardens and is impossible to eat with chips. I will stick to the mexican style dips that are cold from now on. Also the recipe says to heat in oven just until cheese melts and the cream cheese was still cold when the cheese melted. I had to heat much longer than that. Won't be making this one again.

My "picky girl" lliked this alot! I added refried beans after the cream cheese (had some extra) and didn't even heat it up and she dug right in!! Good idea for left over taco meat (& beans)! Thanks Lynn!!!

OH WOW!!!! What a GREAT recipe!!! was very easy and very delicious. I added 2 cups mexican style shredded cheese to the meat mixture plus the cheese on top!!! Made it VERY tasty!!! I made a double batch to take to a birthday party last week and not a bite left to bring home. Was asked for the recipe by lots of people. Some were even parents that told me their kid wanted them to get it from me!!! WILL DEFINITELY MAKE AGAIN!!!

This dip was great and extremely easy to make. I made it for our Superbowl party, and it dissapeared quick! I would reccommend serving it with Corn Chips, or some sort of dipping chip, because the dip is really deep, and you get the full effect with all layers on your chip! Also, we tried it with Refried Beans on top of the cream cheese and loved it. We'll definitely make this one again!

I used reduced fat cream cheese, homemade taco seasoning, omitted the water and upped the salsa and used a full can of diced mild green chilies (I don't normally have fresh chilies on hand). I threw everything in the crockpot a few hours before our party and let it go until party time. GREAT party dip--all my guests loved it and it was not only quick and easy, it was cheap as well.

I made this for a Christmas party and it was completley gone in less than an hour. This recipe is incredibly good. It is definitely a keeper! I did make it with a few alterations. 1) I didn't add any water with the taco seasoning mix 2) I added the whole jar of salsa only because it didn't look as though 1/2 cup of salsa seemed like enough. Maybe because I didn't add the water???? 3)I added refried beans after the cream cheese per other people's suggestions.

Excellent dip, got rave reviews! The combination of ingredients makes it a great success! Will definately make it again.
