Fiesta Dip!

This is a very pretty way to serve what is essentially a seven layer dip.   It just fancies it up a bit.  My mother used to do some catering and this was a big favorite with her customers.   We served this yesterday at our Memorial Day gathering for something to munch during the evening and it was a  hit as usual.   It's also very easy to make.   All you need is a good springform pan.  If you don't have a springform pan and are going to buy one, buy a nonstick one...they work out much better.  Here is all you do to make this dip.  You will be surprised how easy it is.

Crush the corn chips and mix with melted butter. Press in the bottom and 1" up the sides of a 9" springform pan.  Bake for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Cool completely before proceeding with the other steps.

Combine taco seasoning and refried beans.  Mix well and spread in the corn chip crust.
Layer avocado dip and next four ingredients over the refried beans.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight.  Place on a serving plate when ready to serve and remove sides of springform pan.

  1. This sounds really good and I like that it's different from the old standard 7 layer dip. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Diane, it is a good dip and serves a crowd. It also holds up well if any is leftover. I will snack on this one for several days and we fed quite a few people yesterday.
