Special Dip

My mom has made this taco dip for parties and gatherings for as long as I can remember. It is one of my all-time favorite snacks and it was always referred to as special dip growing up (for a while I thought that was the official name). This dip is a great summer dish for parties and it is so colorful and truly impossible to eat just one bite!

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
16 oz. cottage cheese
1packet taco seasoning mix
1 (8 oz.) jar salsa
1 red onion, chopped
1 small head lettuce, shredded
1 red pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 can black olives, chopped
8 oz. Cheddar cheese, shredded

Combine cream cheese, cottage cheese and taco seasoning mix a food processor and blend. Spread on large serving dish. Chill for several hours. Layer salsa, lettuce, cheese, onion, peppers and black olives over mixture. Top with any remaining cheese. Serve with chips. Yield: 12 servings.
