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. Read More

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. Read More

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.) Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

This is a great recipe I love the idea of adding the adding lime juice & spices to the beans. So often that bean layer is dense & bland. I wasn't sure about the sour cream & mayo mixture but it tasted great. I made this for my halloween party and it was a big hit! Read More
