An Easy Beer Dip Recipe For Cinco De Mayo

Break out the tequila and limes, it’s almost time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with some great Mexican inspired dishes!

Cinco De Mayo has always been one of my favorite holidays. Growing up in Texas, it was always celebrated extravagantly.

This year, I plan on making the holiday fun by using McCormick to make this family-friendly party a real fiesta!

I am so in love with this Cheesy Taco Beer Dip and I can’t stop eating it on top of everything!

How To Make This Cheesy Taco Dip With Meat

You start with ground beef, yellow onion, McCormick Taco Seasoning.

Then we add in lots of good Mexican beer, diced tomatoes, green chilies, cream cheese and sharp cheddar cheese.

I like to thicken my Cheesy Taco Beer Dip with a few tablespoons of cornstarch. It creates the perfect cheese dip texture.

However, if you would like it to be lower in carbs, you can use a teaspoon or two of xanthan gum instead.

What Kind Of Taco Seasoning Does This Recipe Use?

I use McCormick Taco Seasoning to load my dip with tons of flavor from one little easy packet (great for busy moms or home cooks of any level!).

McCormick Taco Seasoning is a zesty blend of authentic Mexican seasonings that turn ordinary food into a fiesta of flavor.

It includes some of my favorite seasoning like onions, peppers, garlic, chili pepper and paprika!

You can also swap it for a packet of McCormick Cheesy Taco Seasoning to up the cheesy factor with the same amount of great spice as the original.

Can You Make This Taco Dip Ahead Of Time?

While this Cheesy Taco Beer Dip is easy to make, you can save a lot of time and make it ahead of your party.

You can keep it warm in a crockpot, set on the warm setting, for up to 8 hours.

Just remember to give it a stir every so often. If it gets a little thick, add a tablespoon or two of milk or beer and stir!

I know you are going to enjoy this extra flavorful Cheesy Taco Beer Dip as much as we do!
