If your family is like mine, we love a good dip for a snack or appetizer before dinner. This “Scooper Beef” recipe is one of our favorites.

Scooper Beef


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 packages taco seasoning with ¾ cup water
  • 2 8 oz packages cream cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 Tbsp diced green chilies
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • cup finely chopped lettuce
  • 1 bottle mild or hot taco sauce
  • 2 cup grated cheddar cheese


  • In a skillet, brown ground beef and drain. Add taco seasoning with water to the beef and cool.
  • In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese with milk until creamy.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture on a large plate or tray. Spread ¾ of the cooled beef over cream cheese. Save part of the beef.
  • Sprinkle with green chilies, tomatoes, onions and lettuce. Sprinkle the taco sauce over this, and then sprinkle cheese and add remaining beef over the top.
  • Serve with corn chips or tortilla chips to scoop off the plate. Enjoy this dish as a meal or an appetizer.
