Taco Seasoning

  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp granulated onion
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tbsp cumin

Cheesy Taco Beer Dip

  • 1 lb ground beef Schweid & Sons Butcher’s Blend, 90/10 if possible
  • 4 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1/2 can light beer
  • 1/3 jar salsa about 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 cup milk more if needed depending on desired consistency


  • On medium heat in a cast iron skillet add ground beef and taco seasoning. A little EVOO may be needed-or a non-stick pan can be used.
  • Cook until no longer pink (depending on the fat content you may need to drain).
  • Use beer to de-glaze the pan. Let alcohol cook out. Add salsa. Cook for 2-3 additional minutes.
  • In a separate saucepan: On medium-low heat, add cream cheese, shredded cheese, and milk. Melt and combine completely.
  • Incorporate cheese sauce to meat mixture. Cook for additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve warm as a dip, or if you want to crank it up, smother on top of a burrito for "oven style" goodness. Enjoy!
