My family always had that taco dip, with the velveeta cheese, hamburger, taco seasoning in it, in the crock pot.
Jo's potful book (one of them, can't remember which) has the recipe for it! Made much healthier then my families.
I never made it much after trying weight loss, cause I always just had it with fritos growing up.
But, then a lady on the Richard Simmons message board says she makes it and uses celery to dip into the dip!
I am going to try it like that, you could put fritos out for some people and celery out for others!
I also like the taco dip in the Man book. Something like Macho Dip? Again would work with celery.
Cheese or pb in celery was always a hit with my family too.
I need your help ! ! !
I've been asked to bring a couple of appetizers for Thanksgiving. Any ideas?
