Recipe - Taco Appetizer Platter

I made this delicious (though unfortunately not low-cal) dip for our Memorial Day swimming party and it was quite a hit! Here's the recipe:

1-1/2 pounds ground beef

1/2 cup water

1 envelope taco seasoning

2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup milk

1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies, drained

2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1 cup green onions, chopped

1-1/2 cups lettuce, chopped

1/2 cup honey BBQ sauce

1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add water and taco seasoning; simmer for 5 minutes. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and milk; spread on a 14 inch serving platter or pizza pan. Top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with chilies, tomatoes, onions, and lettuce. Drizzle with the BBQ sauce. Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese. Serve with corn chips.

Now, if the BBQ sauce if a bit off-putting to you, salsa will work nicely. But seriously, the BBQ sauce adds a tiny bit of sweetness to the dish that is surprisingly good! Enjoy!
