My husband was assigned to bring a side dish/appetizer for his work Christmas luncheon. So, I decided to do a taco dip-you know, the one you can’t stop eating at parties? The one that even if you don’t like refried beans (like me), you still eat it anyway because it’s that good?! Yea, this is the one!
It came together in a matter of about ten minutes and I added the lettuce and cheese in the morning so the lettuce wouldn’t wilt overnight in the refrigerator.
Serve it with some tortilla chips alongside, and you’ve got an impressive dish to share at a party, or a fun dinner to eat while watching a move or a game. I am in need of editing the pictures, because I made it in the evening and the lighting was terrible. So, I’ll add them tonight…..for now, here’s the recipe and the link up!
Layered Taco Dip
*16 oz can refried beans
*14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
*1 packet taco seasoning
*16 oz sour cream
*8 oz block of cream cheese, softened
*2 cups salsa
*2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
*chopped green onions
*In a medium bowl, stir the taco seasoning into the refried beans. Spread this along the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
*In another bowl, mix the sour cream and cream cheese together until it’s smooth. Spread this over the refried beans.
*For the third layer, pour the salsa on the sour cream mixture and spread it out.
*Next, put the tomatoes on the salsa. Now, add the green peppers.
*The fifth layer is the lettuce. Give it a good coating of lettuce.
*Now, layer the top with cheese. Cover and refrigerate or serve immediately.
I would suggest making it the night before, and adding the lettuce and cheese right before serving. Serve with tortilla or pita chips.
