A Dish to Pass – Layered Mexican Dip

22 Apr

I have no idea where I originally found this recipe for layered Mexican dip, however it has become my go to dish for gatherings. I’m not a huge fan of cooking (I do it because a girl has to eat), so when it comes to entertaining, I try to focus on recipes that are easy to whip up, but also taste delicious. This layered Mexican dip is very easy to make and is always a big hit with family and friends.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 can refried beans (black or pinto)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • Peppers (red, green, orange, or yellow)
  • Green onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Cheese (Mexican, cheddar or Colby Jack)
  • Casserole dish

Step 1:
Spread the refried beans evenly on the bottom of the dish.

Step 2:
Mix the sour cream and taco seasoning together by hand in a small mixing bowl. Spread evenly over the refried beans. Note: Organic low-fat sour cream can be a bit soupy compared to conventional brands – however, it tastes the same.

Step 3:
Finely chop the veggies and evenly sprinkle over the sour cream layer. I usually use about 1/2 carton of cherry tomatoes, 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 of another colored pepper, and 3-4 green onions. You could also add olives or jalapenos.

Step 4:
Generously sprinkle the cheese over the veggies.

Step 5:
Chill and enjoy!

Do you have a signature dish to pass? I’m always on the look out for easy, crowd-pleasing recipes!
