Layered Taco Dip

My husband and I do a lot with teenagers and THAT is why I love this recipe: because I've never met a teenager, or anyone for that matter, who didn't like it.

It's so easy and so yummy.

What you need:
  • ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning
  • beans ~ you can do re-fried, or you can do what I prefer, and just fix black beans
  • sour cream
  • shredded cheese
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • black olives
  • chopped green onions

Layer each of the above ingredients in the order they are listed.  I mix the meat and black beans for my first layer.  If you chose to use re-fried beans, you can make them your first layer and the meat the second.

{I don't use re-fried because I don't like them.  I have make my own and those are ok, but have you read the ingredients on a can of re-fried beans?  I also try to stay away from anything packaged in aluminum cans as much as possible.}

Then add sour cream and shredded cheese.  You can then sprinkle the chopped veggies on the top in which ever order you like and to your heart's desire.

I like the way it looks.  So pretty, in my opinion.  And the more colorful your food the better it is for you - IF it's natural color without the dyes and food colorings!  :)

Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.  Also taste great with a side of salsa and/or avocado dip.

It's a great snack, or even meal.  I've never had anyone not like it and it's so simple to make.

  1. I've heard of this layered dish before, but I've never seen a picture of it that made it look so beautiful. Makes me hungry looking at it!
