What Ingredients Are In Beef Taco Dip? 

I always like to grab all of my ingredients first and set them out, so they are easy to grab. You will need cottage cheese, ground beef, taco seasoning, salt, pepper, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato and cilantro.  


How Do you make a dip with Cottage Cheese

First, you’re going to want to blend your cottage cheese. Some people don’t like the texture of cottage cheese, plus it smoothes it out so it’s easy to use. You can use a handheld blender, counter top blender or an immersion blender to blend it all together.
