Super Bowl Sunday is about football… and food! Just one more week before the Big Game! Try this Mexican Layer Dip at your next party. It’s a flavor explosion of beans, guacamole, tomatoes, sour cream, and cheese. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water. This is such a pretty dish you won’t want your guests to dig into this plate of deliciousness. But they won’t be sorry (and neither will you!). Enjoy!
Mexican Layer Dip
1 can refried beans
Tabasco sauce, to taste
1 can diced green chilies
Ground cumin, to taste
¾ cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Guacamole
¾ cups Monterey Jack Cheese
1 can Black Olives
1 cup Pico De Gallo
Begin by throwing the refried beans into a small pan over medium-low heat. Add several dashes of Tabasco sauce and a small can of (undrained) diced green chilies. Stir well. Next, sprinkle a little bit of ground Cumin.
Spread the beans on the bottom of a glass bowl or high-sided dish. Over this sprinkle the sharp cheddar. Next, plop your sour cream. And spread it into a single layer, being careful not to disturb the cheese underneath.
The next layer is the guacamole. Spread it over the sour cream. Follow this with a layer of Monterey Jack Cheese and a nice sprinkling of chopped black olives.
Lastly, place a generous layer of Pico de Gallo. You can also, if you have the gumption for it, sprinkle some diced jalapenos over top.
