 Creamy Taco Dip

 "I'm hungry. Not really hungry, just sort of. All I really want is chips and salsa." This is a conversation my former roomate and I would have on a weekly basis. I really believe there is such a degree of hunger as "just chips and salsa" hungry. Keep in mind, this does mean eating about a cup of salsa and half a bag of chips. Both of which are not slightly hungry portions, but that's besides the point. 

Moving away from New Mexico has taken a good deal of salsa from my daily life, but I frequently just want chips and dip, not a whole meal. This is a great dip for salsa rotation. It is creamy and just a little spicy. This is also great over the top of tacos or burritos. But if you are only "chips and salsa hungry" this is the perfect remedy.


1 1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 salsa
2 teaspoons taco seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Combine all the ingredients until they are well mixed. I like to refrigerate the dip for a few hours to really let it set and get yummy.
