Fall Flavors – Taco Dip

Today I am sharing a recipe from my sister-in-law, Kelli, that is a hit with teenagers after a cold football game or as a warm addition to a quick sandwich in the field. We also like it at Christmas as one of our “munchies”. Taco Dip also includes both beef and pork that is raised on our farm.



1 lb. hamburger                                         

1 lb. Italian sausage or hot sausage

1 small onion (chopped)

½ tsp. garlic salt

Combine, brown and drain.

As the above ingredients are cooking, melt the following:

2 lb. box Velveeta cheese (cut in cubes)

1 small battle of hot taco sauce

1 small bottle of mild taco sauce

3 cans of mushroom soup

Combine everything in crock pot.  Serve with chips.

(I turn the crock pot to high while the cheese is melting and stir every now and then.   When most of the cheese is melted I turn the crock pot to low.  You do not want it to boil.)

In fact, it almost feels like the “w” word (winter) and the fall harvest of our corn and soybeans has barely started. A couple of weeks ago when my turkey farmer friend, Katie On the Banks of Squaw Creek shared this opportunity to write 31 blog posts in October, I was excited and began jotting down recipes ideas. (Yes, I am still old school and write out many things on paper!) So, in the next 31 days I plan to share Fall Flavors from our house. You will find that most recipes use basic ingredients, can be easily transported to the field, and include many of those warm rich flavors we think of when we enter the season of fall.
