Cheesy Skillet Taco Dip is the easiest warm taco dip you will ever make. Rich and creamy texture that is filled with Tex-Mex flavor. 

Taco Night is my favorite night of the week. This year I wanted to make a game-day snack that included my favorite flavor of Tacos. This is a cheesy dish that any taco lover will go crazy for.

Skillet Taco Dip

I am a huge fan of dip recipes. Whether I serve them up for a game day appetizer or weeknight treat, they are always a hit. This cheesy taco dip is no different! 

Best of all it takes minimal effort to prepare! 

Can I Use Homemade Taco Seasoning for Taco Dip

Yes, you can! Just make sure you measure it right and it will work just fine! I find using a packet is quick and easy. 

But if you premade homemade taco seasoning it takes just a second to do a scoop or two for the recipe! 

Can I Substitute Pepperjack Cheese

You sure can substitute the pepper jack cheese in this recipe. I love the flavor it brings and a bit of heat factor. If you are not a fan reach for a Colby cheese blend, sharp cheddar or even medium cheddar cheese. Or if you feel lucky mix and match your cheese to fit the flavors you want.

Can I Make Taco Dip Ahead of Time

You can prepare the dip and toss in skillet and cover and place in the fridge. Then when you are to cook simply uncover and bake. It will take a bit longer to cook since your working with a cold pan. 

You can mix the cheese dip up to 6 hours in advance. You don’t want the filling to separate as it sits. 

What to Serve With Skillet Taco Dip

  • Corn chips
  • Tortillas
  • Pretzels
  • French bread
  • Baguettes
  • Fresh veggies 
  • Crackers

You can serve almost anything with this dip. Or use it as the base to create loaded nachos.

How To Store Leftover Taco Dip

Store your dip in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge. Eat leftovers cold or warm them up in the microwave or even! 

Can You Freeze Taco Dip

Unfortunately, you will find that the dip will separate as it thaws once it is frozen. Some dairy just doesn’t do well being frozen and thawed, and cream cheese and sour cream are both on that list. 

Can I Cook Taco Dip in Baking Dish instead of Skillet

You can use an 8×8 baking dish instead of a skillet if you prefer. I love my cast iron skillet so I use it any way I can!
