Layered Taco Dip

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Layered Taco Dip
This wonderful, colorful dip is very popular and really looks beautiful. It became widely known in the 1980s. When you spread the different dips on the platter, make each new layer slightly smaller than the one before, so all the different colors and textures show. Substitute your favorite refrigerated dips for any of the layers to make it even easier!

A hit!, Member pinklady425

I have made this several times, for everything from a Christmas party to a Stock the Bar shower. Everyone LOVES it! Everytime I make it there are never leftovers and people always ask for the recipe. This is definitely at the top of my list for when I need a quick and delicious dip.
