Mexican Dip Appetizer



Making Mexican dip is a must at our house when it comes to having friends over. This time I put it on a round platter for a different look. Super fun.

Mexican dip layers:

  • Beautiful romaine lettuce leaves (optional but pretty if you are making the dip on a platter) Some people chop the lettuce up & place it in as one of the layers but I prefer not to do this since it ruins any leftovers when it wilts. This makes me feel unhappy.
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 pound of ground hamburger or chicken cooked with taco seasoning (break down into very small pieces so it’s easy to scoop up with a chip)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups guacamole (we like the zesty stuff)
  • 2 cups of grated cheddar or pre-packaged grated Mexican taco cheese
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of your favorite salsa
  • 1 – 2 cups of sliced olives
  • 1 bunch chopped green onions
  • Shorty baby tomatoes to place around the edge for pretties
  • And, of course, we can’t forget the tortilla chips.

Our family loves this so much that we have even had this as our dinner. This is a popular dish but if you still haven’t tried it, beware for you shall not be able to stop eating it once you get started. Ole’!
