touchdown taco diprating:
This is a Pampered Chef recipe. I used to work for Pampered Chef, but no longer. I like a lot of their recipes for the 'short-cut' aspect, and they have great appetizer recipes. This is a twist on the traditional taco dip. Enjoy!

1 pkg (250 g) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (250 ml) sour cream
1 pkg (35 g) taco seasoning mix

Pampered Chef recipes are designed to show-off the items that they sell, so that the recipes feature many of their products. I've put the names of their products in brackets, but of course you don't need to have these things to make their recipes!
Enjoy this great dip! I've made this many times, and it always enjoyed!
