If you need a last minute dish to pass that only takes 15 minutes to assemble and uses ingredients that are at any grocery store, this taco dip recipe is perfect! It is sure to be a hit at any tailgate, Cinco de Mayo party or potluck.


  • 1 can black beans
  • 5 ounces (about 2/3 package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jar (about 12 ounces) salsa
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (1/2 package) taco seasoning
  • 3 cups roughly chopped lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 2.25 ounces (1 can) sliced olives
  • 1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes


  1. In a large bowl, combine the black beans, cream cheese, salsa, and taco seasoning. I actually find that a potato masher works well for this, but you could also use a hand mixer.
  2. Spread the mixture out on your serving platter. Stop with chopped lettuce, shredded cheese, sliced olives, and halved cherry tomatoes.

Tips: You can soften the cream cheese in the microwave for 15 seconds instead of waiting for ages! All ingredients are truly approximations and can be modified depending on your needs.
