Presentation is everything! The Mexican layered dip has long been a favorite at parties, but now it’s all grown up and has a new look.

Although it has been around for a while, Mexican layered dip recipes have recently seen a resurgence in popularity. The dips are typically composed of layers of guacamole, sour cream, refried beans, and cheese. The layers can be served with corn or tortilla chips. In recent years, the dips have been augmented with other ingredients such as black olives, diced tomatoes, and sliced jalapenos to create new flavor combinations.

This is one of those things that you can whip up if your husband (or wife) calls and says that they’ve invited some friends over for a games night and they will be arriving in ten minutes! I actually keep a container of guacamole in the freezer for just such occasions! (Did I just blow your mind with the information that guacamole can be frozen?!)

The amounts of each ingredient are going to be different depending on the amount of people you have. All you need to do is layer the ingredients in martini glasses and you will wow your guests. Even if you’ve made layered dip a hundred times before, making it this way will make it seem like an entirely different tasty appetizer recipe dip for parties.
