This easy taco dip is SO delicious, we can't believe how simple it is. If you really want to take it to another level, make our homemade taco seasoning and swap it out for the store bought stuff. Crank up the heat by swapping out the pickled jalapenos for fresh diced jalapenos, and diced radish for a peppery bite. Since this dip is so simple, it serves as a great base for creating a layered dip by just switch up the seasonings and the layers.

Make it Mediterranean

Try Italian seasoning instead of taco seasoning; crumbled goat cheese to replace the cheddar and jack; lemon juice for the lime; and chopped pickled peppers as a sub for the jalapenos.

Make it Middle Eastern

How about yogurt instead of sour cream? Try Za 'atar seasoning instead of taco seasoning, pickled red onions for the jalapenos, and crumbled feta to replace the cheddar and jack.
