How to Make
Step 1
Cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.

Add the tomato sauce, minced garlic, pepper and salt (if using). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

Step 3
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sour cream, 1/3 cup cheddar cheese and Italian seasoning (to taste); mix well. Note: Since it is a small amount you can do this by hand easily.
