Mexican Appetizer Recipe Idea

If you’ve been to my parent’s home in the last 20 years, you’ve had this dip.

While it’s definitely one of those “old school” recipes you received on a handwritten notecard, it’s *good* for a reason!

This is one of those slap it together the night before you need it, and pull it out and serve while people ooh and ahh over it.

First, how do you make Mexican Layer Dip?

Layer all of these ingredients into a casserole dish, and serve with tortilla chips or fresh cut up veggies!

  • Refried Beans
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream (mixed with a package of taco seasoning!)
  • Salsa
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Green Onions (some people like olives!)

Serve with hearty tortilla chips.

Mexican Layer Dip is the perfect appetizer recipe for family gatherings and get-togethers where you need a lot of something, and something to go far!

It’s a super hearty dip, so you’ll need some ‘hefty’ tortilla chips! The “scoop” ones are great, and I actually prefer the big Fritos Scoops!

But, regular tortilla chips will do just fine, just be prepared to go fishing for broken tortilla pieces! ?

  2. Add a layer of taco-seasoned cooked ground beef for a *super* hearty dip!
  3. Instead of using shredded cheese, use a quick and easy white queso dip recipe all over the top.

Our favorite way to serve is for Chalupa Night!

It’s when we know we’ve got a crowd of people gathering, and we’ll have a big pot of pork chalupas on the stovetop. People can come and go as they please, fill their plates high with whatever they like
