Cinco de Mayo is the perfect excuse to whip up this Seven Layer Taco Dip. This is a huge hit with my family all the time, especially my brother. He loves dips. But what’s not to love about this dip?
It’s creamy, its full of flavor and it’s got cheese on it. Everything is fantastic with cheese. Now I’m sure this is a far cry from authentic Mexican food, but to a New Englander like me, it’s Mexican. I’m okay with Americanized Mexican food because this Seven Layer Taco Dip has got it going on.
The best part about this seven layer taco dip, aside from how delicious it is, is how easy it is to make. There’s no cooking, just some mixing and assembling.
It’s also great for parties because it can be made a few hours ahead of time and left in the refrigerator to chill. But if you really can’t wait to dig in, you can eat it right away. Easy to make Seven Layer Taco Dip for the #win.
Now, if you read my Slow Cooker Chili post you’re probably wondering why I like this dip because I stated pretty adamantly that I don’t like sour cream… as a condiment. In this dip and in other dips, it doesn’t count!
Why? In my world, it’s not sour cream when it’s mixed with other ingredients. Adam agrees. We can live in our own little world where we can make up our own crazy food rules. Again, this is why we’re made for each other <3
So enjoy this 7 Layer Taco Dip! I’ll be enjoying mine with some blue corn tortilla chips and a margarita.
