Layered Taco Dip – Perfect for Parties

I’ve been making this dip for years. I actually got the original recipe from my SIL many, many moons ago. She would make it for family parties and then when I moved on my own and started to entertain I did the same. At one point I couldn’t even go to a party without bringing the dip. I finally told all my friends the recipe so they could make it themselves because I wanted to start making something new. Layered Taco Dip – Perfect for Parties is stupid easy and not expensive to make.

    This looks good, but taco-ANYthing is irritable to me 🙂 One of our party staples used to be cream cheese spread on a plate with salsa on top, served with tortilla chips. SO simple and good, but your recipe is healthier.
