Seven Layer Dip makes any occasion a party! Try it with spicy chips like Doritos for an extra kick.
Summer is in full swing and in my neck of the woods, that means cookouts every single weekend. I'm not kidding. Our family can always find a reason to gather around the grill, cook up some mouth watering food, and maybe swim a few laps.
And by 'swim a few laps', I mean hanging near the edge of the pool, sipping fresh mango margaritas
and trying to avoid all of the splashing kids so my hair doesn't frizz beyond recognition. Is that just me?
For any good cookout or outside summer party, I love to have an array of snacks to munch on while the main course is getting grilled up. Whether it's my favorite BBQ Chicken Wings
or this beyond addictive Mexican Layer Dip, I can't attend a cookout empty handed. Me, show up without food? Never.
Mexican Layer Dip is one of my all time favorite summer time party snacks. It's spicy, creamy and filling without being too heavy. My version of Mexican Layer Dip is a spin on The Pioneer Woman's Mexican Dip, complete with fresh pico de gallo and chunky guacamole.
To keep my swim suits from becoming objects of torture, I lightened up my Mexican Layer Dip with fat free refried beans, reduced fat cheese and fat free sour cream. I like to serve it with baked tortilla chips to complete this light-ish version of a summertime classic.
You can even split this recipe up onto two smaller plates - one to put poolside and one to be inside with the rest of the buffet. Your friends will thank you.
