The Best Dip Recipes - Keto Style!
To me, a good dip requires all around great mouth feel and lots of flavor. This easy taco dip recipe, for example, checks all the "best dip" boxes. It has spice, creaminess, crunch, and fatty meat. Some of my other favorite dips that fall into the "best dip" category would definitely be our low carb pizza dip and chorizo dip. I also love to make a big bowl off egg salad with bacon bits and scallions and use zucchini for dipping!
When you combine high fat ingredients like cream cheese, heavy cream, and/or mayo you can't go wrong. That being said, dips can also be dangerous so do yourself a favor and portion it out into Tupperware containers if you make it in bulk so you don't regret that heavy feeling you often feel after stuffing yourself with dairy!

No matter how you fill your melted brie cheese wheel, just make sure you fill it up with something delicious. It doesn't have be taco meat by any means.

Just do yourself a favor and make this easy taco dip ASAP!
