Recipe: Mexican Layered Dip

I love Mexican Layered Dip… everything in it… I could sit and eat the whole thing… I don’t.. thank goodness… but I could.

All you really need to do is layer the ingredients and … voila! … it’s done.


There are two schools of thought on its assembly…. You can use a glass dish that shows the pretty layers….. and the only way you really see the layers is if you make it deep… which makes dipping chips difficult. I prefer this method… I just put a spoon in it so my guests can scoop out a serving on their plate… this way the spoon can “catch” a little bit of each layer.

The other method is to use a shallow pan that’s longer and layer it in that… so you would have shallower layers… I honestly don’t think the presentation is as nice… and I’d rather not have people digging through a dip to get what they want with a chip.

For the guacamole you can use my recipe that I previously posted.

For the salsa.. I always use fresh salsa… never the jarred stuff… but that’s just my personal preference. Use whatever your favorite salsa is.

Just a quick point… you have to be sure to drain the fresh salsa.. otherwise your dip will get runny… I use a slotted spoon when putting it on the dip.

I'm with you -- I like the dip in a glass bowl/dish so you can see the layers. And it's just such a yummy dip, too, everyone loves it, especially me.
