Very good...I loved the green chilis and spices in the beans. Next time I will use more avocados & salsa. A big hit at the birthday party I brought it to.
We were not impressed with this. Maybe I did something wrong. Thanks for the recipe though.
I did not have Lime juice like I thought I had. So I ended up making this without lime. It is a 5 star without it, but with it it would be a 6 star. I did us the store made fresh salsa, so I did not add onions since there is plenty in the salsa. CUMIN and Green chilis in the beans give this a good zip! Thanks for sharing. (Hubby is still in the kitchen raving about this dip.)
This was really good but to cut down on some of the fat, I used low fat sour cream and left out the mayonnaise. I will continue to make it this way.
Excellent! Although I made some modifications. In the bean layer, I left out the peppers, and added a 1/4 c. or so of chili sauce, and some extra chili pwdr and cumin. For the guac layer, I used only 2 avacados, which was plenty. I added some chunky salsa to the guac as well. I added a ~1/2 pkg of taco seasoning to the sour cream layer for some color and a kick of flavor. I don't like olives, so I drained a can of black beans and put about 1/2 on top for garnish. Overall, it was a BIG hit and everyone loved the flavors!
This is always a big hit! Instead of using the salsa, I substituted the salsa with a few diced tomatoes. I took this to a few BBQ's and it was completely gone within 1 hour! Everyone loved it!
I MADE THIS FOR SUPERBOWL XLI AND EVERYONE LOVED IT!! GREAT RECIPE!
Yummy!! Made this for a party and it was gone soooo fast. Now whenever I say I'll bring something, they all say how about that mexican dip you made...
