So ,this Tex Mex Layered Dip has been around as long as I can remember. My mom used to make a large pan of this and it was very elaborate. She would make her guacamole from scratch of course and make things so much richer . She would had a ton of cream cheese in the bottom two layers and it was so good . She would also put so many toppings on top of the cheese you didn’t know cheese was there until you dug in. Well, this is my version and it is a bit simpler . We love Tex Mex dips at our house , you should check out my Easy Fresh Salsa and Bacon Bean Dip.
This type of dip is great for parties or watching your favorite ball game. Believe me put this on the table and it will be devoured in no time, always a party favorite. I have put this together as easily as possible but you can change things up a bit.
- The guacamole layer I use a brand called Wholly Guacamole , you can use another brand or even make your own
- The salsa layer I use a chunky pace brand , you can use what ever brand you like or the amount of heat you like. I just recommend draining it well so it doesn’t make your dip runny.
- The cheese layer I used a Mexican blend but feel free to use your favorite like Cheddar or Pepper Jack
- Toppings..I kept it simple with sliced black olives but get creative and use what you like. Diced Jalapenos, sliced green onions, diced tomatoes or chilies .
Start by draining your salsa and set aside to drain while mixing your other layers. Mix together a can a refried beans, 4 oz cream cheese, 3 teaspoons of taco seasoning.
Carefully spread the bean mixture in the bottom of a 8×8 dish.
Mix together the other 4 oz of cream cheese , sour cream and 3 teaspoons of taco seasoning. Carefully spread on top of the bean mixture.
Carefully spread both packages of guacamole on top of the sour cream mixture.
Carefully spread the drained salsa on top of the guacamole.
Top the dish off with the package of Mexican Blend Cheese.
Cover and Chill for a few hours
