Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    In place of the southwest ranch sour cream dip, use 1/2 cup of sour cream mixed with 1 to 2 teaspoons of Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix.
  • tip 2
    Using precooked bacon slices saves prep time; look for it in the grocery store's meat department.
