Mexican Layered Dip, no cooking and super good. Quick to make.
Mexican Layered Dip—7 Layers of Tasty Nostalgia
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. What a great day to make this Mexican Layered Dip. It’s a recipe from the 1980s, but it’s still a tasty dip.
The last time I made it my New Jersey grandkids were here visiting. My grandkids are not very adventuresome. Are yours? Anyway, the kids skipped the dip, and the adults ate most of it. Some of the grandkids like Guacamole (avocado) and some do not. Some like beans; some do not. Oh, well! I loved it. The recipe calls for plain tomatoes, but you could also top it with Homemade Salsa.
If you eat this dip with vegetables, you can cut down on the additional calories that chips add to the treat (calories for chips are not included in the Nutrition Facts label). But what the heck—I only eat stuff like this every once in awhile. Enjoy!
I used my little food processor to smash up the avocado mixture. It makes it much soother. I love that little machine.
