Lisa D’s Taco Surprise

May 11, 2020

This recipe was submitted by Lisa Doyle, First Contact worker at The AIDS Network as a part of our A Taste at Home campaign.


2 large packages of cream cheese (comes in a box)

500ml sour cream

2 packages of taco seasoning

1-3 cloves of fresh garlic (optional)

Dried minced onion bits (optional)

Shredded cheddar cheese



Green onion



Leave cream cheese out of fridge to soften for a couple of hours. Once cream cheese is softened, take an electric beater and  blend the sour cream, cream cheese, taco seasoning,  fresh garlic and dried onion bits. Dish into large casserole dish. Put shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and green onions on top and refrigerate until ready to serve. The dish has it’s best flavour if left in fridge overnight before serving, but still delicious served the same day! Serve with nacho chips and enjoy!
