Baked Taco Dip

Taco dip is a quick, enjoyable meal to prepare for the whole family or for a snack with a small group of friends.


Chef notes:

This recipe works just as well with a meat-free crumble as a substitute for ground beef to make it vegetarian.


Specialty equipment:

Outdoor Grill


Prep time: 45 minutes

Cook time 30-45 minutes


1lb lean ground beef

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 yellow onion, small diced

4 cloves of garlic, chopped

3 cups chicken stock

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp chipotle powder

1 tsp smoked paprika

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 tbsp cornstarch + 1 tbsp water

2 large bell peppers

5 oz aged cheddar cheese

1 cup tomato, chopped

Sour cream

Fresh cilantro

  • Preheat the grill to high and the oven to 375°F.

  • In a large frying pan add the vegetable oil and cook the ground beef on medium-high until it starts to brown lightly.

  • Drain the ground beef, set it aside, and add the fat back into the pan.

  • Add the onions to the pan and cook until they start to brown, stir continuously.

  • Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.

  • Add the meat back into the pan, add the stock, and turn the heat down to a slow simmer. Cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the beef is soft and the stock has reduced by half.

  • While you are waiting for the beef to cook, grill the bell peppers, turning often until the skin becomes charred.

  • Turn off the grill, put the peppers into a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. This will steam the peppers slightly making it easier to remove the skin.

  • After 10 minutes remove the skin from the peppers, dice them, and set aside.

  • Once the beef is cooked, mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl and slowly add this to the meat to thicken the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Pour the cooked beef into the bottom of an oven-safe casserole dish, top with the salsa, then the grated cheddar cheese, then the diced roasted peppers, and chopped fresh tomato.

  • Bake the taco dip for 30–45 minutes, until it is bubbly and golden brown. Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips, sour cream, and fresh cilantro.
