Mexican Layer Dip

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A delicious, quick, and easy Mexican Layer Dip recipe that includes sour cream, avocado and tasty cheese – a fun recipe to make with the kids!

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 enjoy with the family or to bring along to BBQ’s (once we’re allowed out and about again!). It’s a definite crowd-pleaser!

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.
