We LOVE Mexican Layer Dip!

I’ve had this Mexican layer dip recipe on a little index card for over 30 years and don’t have a clue how or where I first received it, but I have made this dozens of times over the years. Takes about 20 minutes to make, and then it refrigerates until you’re ready to eat!  It’s a winner!

Our family loves this easy to assemble appetizer. Our oldest son even asked for a platter of this dip as part of his birthday present this past year.  What? Yes, that’s how good it is!

Prep the ingredients before you begin preparing the Mexican layer dip, then all you need to do is layer the ingredients in order! The dip is refrigerated for an hour after that! When you’re ready to serve, all that is left is to gobble it up with a handful of tortilla or corn chips! It’s so very easy – anyone can make this!

I know you will love this Mexican Layer Dip. Isn’t it “pretty”? I like to make this on a pizza platter or a round glass platter. That’s perfect for scooping! Yum. Wait till you TASTE it! Have a great day, and please come back again soon.
