  1. In a clear pie pan, or similar dish, spread a layer of bean dip. Top the bean dip with a layer of guacamole. Allow the layers to thicken in the refrigerator for approximately 20 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, while the bean dip and guacamole chill, combine the sour cream and taco seasoning. When the chilled mixture is sufficiently thickened, spread a layer of the sour cream mixture over the layer of guacamole. Top the sour cream layer with the grated cheese. Garnish the layers with the jalapenos and tomatoes.

This is great...very easy to make and everyone raves! I changed it slightly by substituting 1/2 of the sour cream with 2/3 a stick of cream cheese. I found that this keeps the dip from getting too soggy with the sour cream. Also, I occasionally add chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and onions before the cheese layer. Thanks for sharing!!

Didn't do much for me & was way too salty. I am glad I tried this out at home alone because I would have been embarrased had I served it to guests. There are so many other good Mexican dip recipes out there I see no point in trying to fix this one.

I love this recipe...I omit the guacamole and add cooked chicken or ground beef to make a whole meal. I also like lettuce and green onions chopped and sprinkled on top. I make individual plates of this and serve it with chips or warm tortillas.

Good stuff. Tastes just as good with fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheese. I like to add sliced black olives on top too.

I served this recipe at a party and everyone loved it! It's very spicy because of the taco seasoning which makes it stand out compared to other mexican dips. Instead of jalepeno peppers I chose to use green peppers. -Sheila

A real hit. Made it for the superbowl game. Makes a LOT. Might want to cut in 1/2 or make two containers. Everyone loved it. A keeper
