Adapted from: Paula Deen
1 pound lean Ground Beef
1 package Taco Seasoning
3/4 cup Salsa (I used Clint's - our favorite!!)
1 pint Sour Cream
3 ripe Avocados
2 cups Grated Cheddar Cheese (grating your own has more flavor)
Brown your beef, and mix with Taco Seasoning according to package directions. (Most have you add water) Cool for about 10 minutes. Mix the salsa and sour cream in with the taco meat. Layer in the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. Top with chopped avocados. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top of everything, and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Serve warm with tortilla chips. I put the remaining salsa out along with the dip as well.
Paula has you do it more in layers, (5 layers to be exact) but when we made it about a year ago it was dry - so we made this adaptation and it worked perfectly. The meat layer is much more juicy and it ends up making a nicer consistency for the dip in my opinion.
