Gabriella's Dip...Yum!!

When we brought Gabriella home from China we, like everyone else who 

makes this life changing journey that is full of blessings, had our days and 

nights totally confused!  As I was very excited to have something 

familiar, yet easy and versatile enough to eat at any time I made this Mexican 

Crock Pot dip that has affectionately been renamed to "Gabriella's Dip"  It's 

EASY! Just add tortilla chips and it's OH - SO -  YUMMY! 

 As we are having record heat in Indiana we also don't have to turn on the 

oven so we just made another batch and are totally enjoying it:)


2 lbs cooked, crumbled ground chuck

2 taco seasoning packets

1-28 oz can petite diced tomatoes

1-28 can refried beans

1-16 oz jar medium Ortega taco sauce

1 tsp chili powder or more if you like

1/2 tsp of sea salt

1 8 ounce package of shredded cheese, your choice of flavor.  I like the 

casserole blend.


Put all ingredients in crock pot, except cheese, and stir together. Sprinkle 

shredded cheese on top.  Cook on low 3-4 hours or high 1-2 hours. 

 Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!

This dip is also a favorite in the fall when we are watching football games!
