My motto for the New Year is K.I.S.S.

If you don’t know what K.I.S.S.stands for it means Keep It Simple Stupid.

When I start getting ideas for recipes sometimes I get carried away and try to add anything I can in sight. What I’ve learned over the years is that more isn’t always more.

Too many ingredients can sometimes compete with each other rather than letting the flavors of the dish shine.Beef Enchilada Dip - so easy! Always a crowd pleaser!

When I was brainstorming the ingredients for this dip I asked my husband what he thought classic beef enchiladas should have in them.

He said, “Beef, onions, cheese, enchilada sauce, and tortillas.

So that’s exactly what I did. Start off my browning some beef and onion with a little garlic (because everything needs garlic in it).

You can’t forget your tortilla or in this case your tortilla chip!

Now if you want to get fancy you can add a big dollop of sour cream and olives in the middle and sprinkle it with chopped cilantro. The best part is that this feeds a crowd!
