A delicious, quick, and easy Mexican Layer Dip recipe that includes sour cream, avocado and tasty cheese – the perfect crowd-pleasing dish for entertaining!
I love how easy this Mexican Layer Dip is to make! It can literally be whipped up in 10 minutes, making it a great affordable dish to bring along to BBQ’s. It’s a definite crowd-pleaser too, as I always seem to go home with an empty dish.
This delicious masterpiece only requires a few ingredients, and is so simple to throw together that even the kids can make it.
Refried beans are not usually my favourite thing, but mixed with some Mexican seasoning it makes a great base for this Mexican Layer Dip.
This is a 5 layer Mexican Dip, however you could easily add a few additional layers of lettuce, capsicum, olives or spring onions if you wanted to make it healthier or stretch it further.
I make this dip in a square casserole dish, but any nice shallow dish would be perfect for this recipe.
