Keto 3 Layer Mexican Dip FAQ’s

Does this baked Mexican dip have cream cheese?

I thought long and hard about the creamy third layer in this 3 Layer Mexican Dip. I love cream cheese in my dips (like this super easy 3-Ingredient Sausage Cream Cheese Vegetable Dip).

But cream cheese is an ingredient that is used so much in keto cooking (like in fathead dough creations like this Keto Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Danish) that I wanted to make a keto dip without cream cheese. Instead, the creamy layer of this taco dip includes mayonnaise and sour cream.

What taco meat should I use for this 3 Layer Mexican Dip?

This keto taco dip recipe is not picky about which type of taco meat you use. You may certainly use your favorite taco meat recipe. Or use my very favorite, Keto Super Taco Meat Recipe.

By following that link, you’ll also find several taco-inspired recipes to use up that awesome taco meat.

What can I use to scoop my keto taco dip appetizer?

I know, if you’re just starting out on the keto diet, you’re used to grabbing a bag of tortilla chips. So easy. I’d argue it’s just as easy to find keto dipping options.

We love using low carb veggies for dipping. For this 3 layer Mexican dip recipe, bell pepper slices are delicious. Another option is cheese chips.

For cheese chips, preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place cheese slices in triangle shapes on the baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and melted. Cool for a few minutes, remove from sheet, and dip away!Overhead shot of uncooked cheese slices on baking sheet prior to baking for cheese chips

How long does taco dip last?

Taco dip will last about 5-7 days when refrigerated. You may also freeze the baked Mexican dip prior to baking it. Thaw completely before baking and then follow the directions for baking.

What mayo is good for keto?

Most mayonnaise contains unhealthy vegetable oils and sugar. This
2-MINUTE KETO OLIVE OIL MAYONNAISE is super easy and keto friendly.
