More Munchies for Game Day

Oh yum, this dip is a goodie to make for a game or just a lazy day on the weekend. I tried this out and K-man said I could make this for dinner everyday and he wouldn't mind. HAhahahha!

Hot Taco Dip

1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 package reduced fat cream cheese
1 package Taco Seasoning
4 ounces Kraft Fat Free shredded cheddar cheese (divided into 2 portions)
4 ounces Cabot's 40% reduced fat Pepper Jack cheese, shredded (divided into 2 portions)
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
halved or chopped cherry/grape tomatoes
chopped green onion for garnish

Preheat to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray and set aside.

Brown ground beef over medium heat. Drain and return beef to pan. Add the onion and garlic, cook for 5 minutes until onions translucent. Remove from heat to cool.

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, taco seasoning. Add the beef and one portion each of the cheeses. Mix to combine. Spoon the mixture into pie plate and sprinkle with remaining portions of cheeses. Top with chopped jalapenos (don't seed or devein, if you want it hotter) and chopped tomatoes.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Sprinkle with chopped green onion on top and serve with tortilla chips (pictured was the BLUE corn ones) or Stacy's baked pita chips.

K-man had no idea that I was using the lower fat versions of many things in order to cut the fat and calories. All he cared is that it was scrumptious!
