Taco Dip

This super ooey gooey messy looking dish is taco dip, recipe from Closet Cooking. I made it as a snack for a day of crafting for a friend's wedding. She and I had already started digging it into it before I remembered to take a picture, so you'll have to excuse the corners. The dip was delicious, and four of us finished the whole pan. It was basically our lunch. I modified the recipe a little bit, and I've added my adaptation below. This is a great party dish.

Taco Dip
(recipe adapted from Closet Cooking)
1/2 lb ground turkey
4 oz room temperature neufchatel cream cheese
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese, plus extra for topping
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup light sour cream
taco seasoning, to taste
2 Tbsp water

Optional Toppings
shredded romaine lettuce
sliced black olives
diced tomatoes
diced avocado

Brown the ground turkey, then add taco seasoning and water. Mix well until seasoning is blended into meat. In a medium-size bowl, add turkey, cream cheese, salsa, cheese, mayo, and sour cream and stir until well combined. Spread into a medium size baking dish and top the dip with additional cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Add any optional toppings. Serve with tortilla chips.
