Six-Layer Festive Dip!

Posted: Jan 19 2013


I'm reposting this recipe because it's playoff time again, which means a lot of people are gathering around the television to watch football. And I don't think it's physically possible to watch football without having a snack in one hand and a drink in the other. This is also a time when friends are opening up their homes and enjoying food and fellowship together.There's no need to fuss over what to bring, because this recipe is always a winner. Heck! You don't even need an invitation. Show up at someone's house with this concoction and a football jersey and you'll be friends for life. 

3 cans of black beans (drained and rinsed)
3 Tbsp taco seasoning
1 Tbsp cumin
1/2 cup salsa
1/3 cup taco sauce
12 oz. guacamole
12 oz. sour cream
2 tomatoes, diced
one head of lettuce, shredded
1 cup of shredded cheese

Process the beans, cumin, salsa, taco sauce, and TWO tablespoons of taco seasoning. If you don't have any taco sauce, no big deal, just add a touch more salsa. This is just to flavor the beans. After your process them, give them a taste and see if you like it. After the beans are thoroughly processed and look more like dip, spread it around in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. This is the first layer.

On top of the beans, spread the guacamole. This is layer two. Mmmmm, you can't have too much guacamole, can you?

For layer three, grab a wisk and mix in the remaining ONE tablespoon of taco seasoning with the sour cream.

Then dump it all on top of the guacamole.

Then spread it all around. This is layer number three.

For layer four, I like to sprinkle diced tomatoes. When I went to make it this time, I didn't have any tomatoes, so I just grabbed some chunky salsa, spooned it out with a slotted spoon to drain it a bit, and sprinkled some of the tomato chunks on top. Not bad, if I have to say so myself. Sometimes you just have to make do (and I did). This is layer number four.

Now, chop up some lettuce. Katie helped make the dip, so I got a pic of her shredding that bad boy like nobody's business.

Now spread the lettuce on top. This is layer number five. Hoooweeee! It's almost there!

For layer six, sprinkle some cheese on top.

There you have it--SIX LAYERS OF SHEER LOVE! Now step back and take in the glory of it all before you put out the bag of chips and watch it get destroyed.

Talk About It!
