Tex-Mex 5 Layer Dip - Happy Cinco de Mayo


 I few days back I talked about how "double dipping" dips is totally gross. I took that to heart when I decided to make a Tex-Mex Layer dip for Cinco de Mayo.  I made these individual little beauties and everyone had their own bowl to enjoy.  You have a layer of spicy re-fried beans, guacamole, sour cream, salsa and cheese.   That adds up to 5 layers for the 5th of May. :)  Have a wonderful and delicious Cinco de Mayo!


Re-fried Bean Layer:
1 can vegetarian re-fried beans
red chili flakes to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 Tbs cumin powder
2 Tbs water

Guacamole Layer:
1 ripe avacodo
lime juice to taste
salt to taste
2 Tbs sour cream

Sour Cream
favorite sour cream of choice

Salsa of Choice

Shredded Cheese of choice
I recommend a Mexican cheese blend

pickled jalapenos

In a pan heat re-fried and ingredients listed with the beans.  Allow to cool to room temperature.  Then mix guacamole mix.  Layer in the bowls starting with the beans mixture first.  The follow with guacamole, salsa, sour cream and cheese.  Makes about 4-6 servings. Enjoy.

  1. I love these Mexican-style layered dips and your presentation is really fun, Ramona. The seasonings that you used in the beans sound wonderful. I also like that you put sour cream in your guacamole--what a nice addition!

  2. What a fun way to serve dip! Perfect party food!

  3. I hope you saved one of these layered babies for me! This is exactly what I'd be hovering over at a Cinco de Mayo party! YUM!

  4. I love sharing and I also love to have my own special, fancy serving. Great idea!

  5. And a Happy Belated Cinco de Mayo to you, Ramona! I would dig into one of those 5 layer dips any day of the week though, not just for the holiday. :D They look too good to pass up!

  6. These individual cups are cute and so perfect for a party. I think double dipping is gross. I also love dip and always feel self conscious about going back to much. Having one all to myself is perfecto!

  7. Wish I had a bag of chips and one of these glasses of dip! YUM!

  8. A fav around this household especially when we are watching a series of movies, and it's a snack type dinner night. Thank you for a wonderfully great snack.
