7-Layer Mexican Dip

My dip is actually only six layers because we don't like olives, but I'm going to give you the full recipe and you can decide for yourself if you want olives or not. This is a recipe that has been around for a long time. But it is such a good one, I still love making it for get togethers. I just made this Sunday for our group of Christmas carolers - we went out singing to neighbors and then came back to our house to enjoy snacks and friendly conversation. If your lucky, you'll find red and green tortilla chips for everyone to dig into this dip with like I did.

7-Layer Mexican Dip

▪ 1 package 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
▪ 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix
▪ 1 cup prepared guacamole
▪ 1 cup salsa
▪ 1 cup shredded lettuce
▪ 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
▪ ½ cup chopped green onions
▪ 2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives

Mix cream cheese and seasoning mix. Spread on bottom of 9-inch pie plate.

Layer remaining ingredients over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate.

Garnish with cherry tomatoes, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips.

Notes: This is an easy recipe to spice up with hot guacamole or salsa. Yum!

Only 1 more recipe until Christmas!
