MIL’s Mexican Dip

Posted by on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012


Some of the most popular recipes here are ones that originated with my grandmothers or my Mother-in-Law.  Here is a tasty recipe that could actually be a one dish dinner for our family.  But it also makes a nice party or holiday appetizer as well. And best of all it’s easy to put together! So next time you need a crowd pleasing, party platter – make my MIL’s Mexican Dip!

In a 9×13 baking dish layer:

  • 1 14 oz can re fried beans
  • 8 oz sour cream that has been mixed with 2 Tablespoons mayo
  • 2 large avocados (remove peels and seeds) mashed with 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt, 1 Tablespoon lime juice, 2 Tablespoons Mayo
  • 2-3 diced fresh tomatoes (seeds removed)
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped
  • 1 pound grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sliced olives (optional)
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6-8 slices cooked bacon – chopped

Layer items in order listed  above, sprinkling  2-3 Tablespoons JUST TACO SEASONING between each layer. If you don’t want to use my JUST TACO SEASONING, use 2/3 packet store bought Taco Seasoning.
