This is a really great recipe, but I did make some changes. I scaled back on the Taco Seasoning and used shredded mexican cheese instead of processed cheese. I also used fresh Salsa instead of tomatoes and it came out fabulous! It's very easy and got rave reviews from friends!

It wasn't the best bean dip but it was easy to make. I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was missing but it needs something.

Great to take to parties

I made this and the family liked it. Like some of the others I did use picante sauce instead of tomatoes and fresh shredded cheese. I persanlly could have done without the taco seasoning. Thats just me though. My family thougth it gave it a nice zing to it. Much better the next day around though.

The BEST dip EVER! I made this for a cookout and everyone loved it, I just made to much. I let the leftovers sit in the fridge overnight. It was even better the next day. All the flavors had melded together. SO FABULOUS. Try this for ANY party!

Scrumptious! Everyone raved. It did get a little messy after a while though, the layers mixing together. Still yummy.

This was so tasty! My teenaged son made this and we really enjoyed this recipe. We made taco seasoning by Bill Echols, and divided it equally between the sour cream and the bean dip. We didn't have garlic salt so we sprinkled garlic powder and sea salt on the mashed avocado and mixed it all together with the lemon juice. A little too much lemon juice but that may have been our fault because we squeezed the juice from 1 really small lemon and didn't measure. The lemon added a really nice flavor to this. Didn't use velveeta, we used about 6 oz of shredded cheddar instead. We made this in a round pyrex pie plate, it was the perfect size. 4.5 stars
