Bring this Patriotic Easy Layered Taco Dip to your next summer picnic! It’s a quick and easy side dish that you don’t have to bake. Serve with tortilla chips.
You’re going to love this easy layered taco dip that is perfect for summer picnics. Don’t you love getting creative with your food? Stuffing brownies with Oreos, turning potatoes into pizza, and little veggie blossoms.
One place where I know I can always be inspired with cute food ideas is Pinterest. Before I had this food blog, I loved searching Pinterest for ideas, but didn’t have an account. I’ve had an account now for 3 years and have pinned so many recipes that I will most likely never get the chance to make.
But this easy layered taco dip is one I had to try!
You’re going to love this Patriotic Easy Layered Taco Dip, too, because it is yet another quick, easy side dish that doesn’t involve turning on your oven. Who wants to turn on your oven in the summertime anyway? And isn’t the American flag look so cute?
Unless, of course it is to make this Potato Chip Chocolate Pie!
For this recipe, you’re going to first spread some sour cream on the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Then you’ll sprinkle some taco seasoning on top. Remember our Homemade Taco Seasoning that you made a big batch of? This is yet another great use of it.
After the taco seasoning, you’ll layer on a few black beans and some lettuce. Then you get to make the pretty flag design with cheese, sliced olives, and halved grape tomatoes.
And so festive!
There are several variations you can do to make this taco dip your own.
I would suggest not making this too much ahead of time. I ended up a with a little bit of water on the bottom of the pan, possibly from washing the veggies right before putting it together. So you’ll want to dry your veggies really well, and don’t let it sit too long before serving.

If you’ve dried the veggies really well before layering the dip, this will last a day or two. If you end up with a little water in the dish, you can drain it off before serving.
Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers!

Excited I stumbled upon this recipe when looking for a taco dip , love the idea of the flag! I will be bringing it to a bbq this afternoon and plan to add ground beef on the bottom before starting the sour cream layer. Will one pound be enough or should I make 2 pounds for the 9×13 pan ? I’m assuming I would skip adding taco seasoning to the sour cream since it will be in the ground beef?
Thank you in advance for guidance ????
HAPPY 4th!! ☀️????
