I made this with one change. Instead of guacamole I used about half a pound or more taco meat. It was AMAZING.

This was delicious!! I made it for my son's soccer game and there wasn't any left - It was a big hit :)

Loved this!! With such few ingredients it was surprising how good it was! My husband loved it too. Didn't take very long either to make. I definitely recommend this!

This is very good made as the recipe is written. The recipe is easy and hard to mess up. I like layer dips because you can change it depending on what you have on hand and what people like. ...

Great version to use when you have vegetarians in the crowd. I added chopped tomatoes and green onion as an extra topping. Definitely a keeper ... Delicious!
