Taco Layer Dip Recipe

Taco Layer Dip

This recipe is my own take on the seven-layer dip that has populated potlucks and social gatherings.

Fun and simple to make, it feeds a crowd and works well as left-overs–if you can stop eating it!

It’s more a deconstructed taco and works as a layered taco salad.
