Recipe: Layered Dip


Layered Dip

I served this layered dip with tortilla chips at little man’s birthday party. Everyone loved it and we loved what little leftovers we had.


Black beans
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar cheese


Simple really, just layer on everything in order starting with the black beans and ending with the cheese. It’s great to make ahead and store in the fridge.
