Mexican Layered Dip

Note:  If you haven’ shared your favorite New Year’s party food please add a link to your recipe here at my Linky Party! I can’t wait to try some of your recipes.

This recipe is always required for any big football watching occasion at our home.  It is the first thing that Logan will request when I ask what they want.  Be it New Year’s Day or Super Bowl Sunday there will be Mexican Layered Dip at our house.

It is similar to Seven Layer Dip but this one only has 6 layers!

The first step is to find a pretty serving dish.  I just used a shallow white serving platter.

The first layer is guacamole.  You can make it from scratch but I buy it at the store.  I like the fresh guacamole they sell in the Deli section at Costco.  But if you want to make your own I included a recipe below.

Second Layer – next comes the sour cream with taco seasoning added in.

The only thing left is to add some chips for dipping.  Happy football watching!!

    My family LOVES this dip, but we add a couple more layers. On the bottom we put a layer of our favorite bean dip and on top I sprinkle either a can of drained diced green chilies or if we like it hot – diced jalapenos. Try it, you’ll like it!

    I love making this layered dip, but I have always made mine with a base layer of Vegetarian Refried Beans, that I mix a drained can diced chilies into.
