Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup Sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Taco seasoning or 1 packet
  • 1 cup Cheddar jack cheese freshly grated (more to taste)
  • 1 cup canned fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 14.5 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 ounces Sliced olives drained
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced for garnish, optional
  • Tortilla chips for serving

Instructions

  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese with sour cream and taco seasoning. *For best results, beat cream cheese with a hand or stand mixer until fluffy and smooth (no lumps), then stir in sour cream and taco seasoning.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture into an 11x7-inch baking dish and spread evenly with a spatula. Layer ingredients as desired: cheese, black beans, tomatoes/green chiles, corn, olives. Garnish with sliced green onions.
  • Chill until ready to serve, and serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
  • Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Amounts of toppings listed are general. Feel free to use more or less to your liking.
  • If your store doesn't carry the Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes with green chiles, 2 cans of Rotel, or a combo of 1 can diced tomatoes and 1/2 of a can of green chiles, all drained well, will suffice.
