Mexican Layered Dip is a delicious dip filled with refried beans, guacamole, salsa and all your favorite toppings. This seven layered dip is perfect party and game day food.

This Mexican layered dip is so perfect for any get together and it makes enough to feed a small crowd.

This is a perfect appetizer for a party because you make it ahead of time and then refrigerate. When it’s party time, you simply pull out and serve. Of course, you can also serve it right away. The layers will be a bit soft, but just as delcious. 

I used my Crock Pot Refried Beans, homemade salsa and guacamole in this dip.  But to save time you can always purchase any of them at the grocery store.

    Laura makes a very similar dip for the holidays (and then again for the Super Bowl usually) each year. It’s super easy and delicious…but I don’t think hers uses guacamole as a layer. I’m totally going to have her add that in next time! This looks delicious, Kathy!
