Let's Take A Dip!



It's the Fall Season, although you could not tell that here in Key West, and time for one of my favorite Sunday pastimes - Football! We have football games on our TV from noon on Sunday till 10 pm Sunday night. I do not necessarily sit in front of the TV for all of it, but I do keep my eye on the games. So every Sunday I try to think of a good football meal. Sometimes we have chili or BBQ ribs, but one of the fun things is the appetizer before the big football meal. I want to share one of my favorite "crowd pleaser" dips that I whipped up yesterday. This dip is so good and only takes about 10 minutes to assemble. It holds well in the fridge so you can make it way ahead of serving.




Mexican Layer Dip

I use a pie plate to serve this in as it is easy to pass since it has handles on the sides and it seems to be just the right size!

Just layer
1 half a can of refried beans
About 3/4 cup of guacamole
About 3/4 cup of salsa
About 3/4 cup of sour cream
Sprinkle over this about 1/4 cup of sliced black olives
Sprinkle over this about 3/4 cup of shredded cheese
Then sprinkle one or two chopped tomatoes
And lastly I put about 4-6 chopped green onions on top
Serve with your favorite tortilla chips

Notice I say "about". It is up to you to decide how much you would like your layers to hold. If you need more dip, use a bigger dish and increase the quantities of layers. Also for your fans who like it "hot", you could add some hot chili peppers into one of the layers and also sprinkle some hot sauce over the dip. See how versatile this dip can be. Best of all it is fast and flavorful!

Cheers!

Aha! Mexican layer dip is always a favorite. I love how quick and easy it is!

We also love the infamous Buffalo Chicken dip for football season.

This is one of my favourites Deb. I also really love Warm Artichoke Dip as well:D

Deb, great to see you getting back into the swing of things.

Dips like this can eat like a meal.

Holler said...

Mmmmmmmmm, yum Deb! You can pass that one this way! As for the football, I am not so fond of that :(

Johanna said...

I am not much of a fan of football but a dip like this one would make football evenings seem more appetising :-) It is just asking for some corn chips to be dunked in it!

Glad to see you back again! And that is a yummy looking dip--the kind of dip that you'd lose your dinner appetite over and not feel guilty about.

Aimée said...

I love that there is beans in here. The could be my supper with a big bag of tortilla chips. Yum!

Lori Lynn said...

The pie plate as a serving dish is such a great idea Deb!

Oh yum! Chips and dip is my favorite food for sure! If ever I can get down to the Keys, can you make some of this for me, and can we sit outside and see your garden?

Nancy said...

Oh yes ... delicious. And what you want to sip with this is a nice sweet/acid, sprightly German riesling. No kidding. I drank a glass of riesling with our Halloween tacos a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Deb, this layered dip sounds heavenly! And it looks so pretty too. I hope you have been well...I've missed chatting with you through blogging. My blogging break turned out to be rather extended (yikes!), but I'm happy that I've jumped back in, and hope you will soon find time to return. :-)

Shayne said...

Bellini Valli said...

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons bring
the best to you and yours!
