Layered Mexican Dip

Some of the best parts of any big ballgame are the food and friendship. Even for those of us who might not get into sports, the big game is still a terrific time to invite over a few friends or neighbors. And, of course, it never hurts to have plenty of good food to share. Layered Mexican Dip is a favorite of ours to serve while watching a big game with friends because it requires very little cooking and is always a crowd-pleaser.

The only cooking you’ll need to do for Layered Mexican Dip is to brown the hamburger meat and add the taco seasoning. Once that is done, you just simply have to layer the ingredients in a dish. So simple!

The good thing about Layered Mexican Dip is that you can substitute ingredients as you like, and you will still have a terrific dip. Not a fan of guacamole? Leave it out! Don’t want it too spicy? Drop the jalapeños. There are still lots of other layers to provide a full flavor.

To make Layered Mexican Dip you will need:

1 can of refried beans – I used canned refried pinto beans from Sprouts, but you can use refried black beans if you prefer
1/4 cup sliced jalapeños
1 lb. ground beef, browned
1 package taco seasoning – I made my own using this recipe.
1 jar salsa – I made my own using this recipe.
1 8 oz container of guacamole
1 8 oz container of sour cream
1 8 oz block of your favorite cheese, grated – I used colby jack, but cheddar or pepper jack would also be delicious.
1 4 oz can of sliced black olives
1/2 bunch green onion, sliced greens only
Salt

Brown ground beef and add taco seasoning according to package directions. In a 9″x13″ casserole dish, spread a layer of refried beans. Sprinkle the layer with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add a layer of jalapeños, making it as thick or thin as you like. Next add the layer of taco meat. After that, add the layer of salsa. After the salsa, carefully add the layer of guacamole. This will be a little difficult to spread, but should be easier if you let it sit out for a few minutes before spreading. Next add the layer of sour cream. Top that with a layer of shredded cheese. Finish it off with a sprinkle of olives and green onions. Refrigerate if you aren’t serving immediately. Serve with tortilla chips.

Now for a few tips that make this dip delicious and easy to make. While you can make your own guacamole if you are so inclined, we LOVE the hatch chile guacamole from the Sprouts produce department. They make it in the store, and we and use it whenever we can.

If you want to try making your own taco seasoning, but don’t want to invest in a bunch of spices, check out the bulk seasoning aisle in Sprouts. You can buy just the amount you need, which keeps you from spending a lot on spices you won’t ever use again. It really is one of my favorite areas of the store.

Since this dip is thick, you need a solid chip that won’t break with every scoop. The Sprouts extra thick tortilla chips are the bomb. No chip breakage with these!
