This colorful Southwestern-style taco dip will be the biggest hit of your party.—So many layers of homemade guacamole and all your favorite taco toppings!
So I would be lying if I told you I didn’t almost make a meal out of this taco dip.
Because as I’m sure you all are fully aware —>>>> “I’ll just have one chip…”
Said no human being ever.
In other fantastic news…it’s a dip kinda Tuesday! And I obviously brought that ONE dip that all your summer cookouts, parties, and generally just any-‘ol-day are going to absolutely require.
I’m going to proclaim that taco dip is a requirement for any and every day. I’m layin’ down the dip law, peeps.
Let me show you how to make it happen. —>
First, we make the best twist on taco dip your tastebuds will ever see. This involves layer up on layer upon LAYER of taco goodness in your most heavy-duty dip bowl.
I had to use a pie plate you’ll notice. My amount of dip was almost-but-not-quite overwhelmingly gigantic.
Hiding underneath all those Southwestern-style dip ‘fixins you see on top…we have not one, not two, but THREE layers of (a) homemade guacamole (b) sour cream (c) salsa.— We go BIG dip flavors or go home!!
And if you’re not going home…well, you might as well hang out in the taco dip bowl.
Chips = totally optional here. I’d be lying through my teeth if I told you industrial-sized tasting spoons did not enter this dip.
↑↑ THIS. Be a smart dip devourer.

I have no doubt in my mind that this would become my entire meal…maybe even my three meals of the day. This looks SO good, Sarah! Such a creative idea to layer another dip on top of guac. Wishing I had a big bowl of this right now!
Oh gosh, this dip could TOTALLY serve as all your meals of the day! It’s just that good. 🙂 Thanks Gayle!
Oh – I get it! I was wondering where the guacamole was in the photos!!! So it’s layered – brilliant!!!
The more layers, the better right? Thanks Mimi!

“Just one chip” NEVER happens! I am obsessed with corn chips and any kind of dip so I could snack on this all day long. I love the southwestern flavors and you can never go wrong with guacamole!
Haha nope! It’s impossible to stop after one. 😉
Leah @ Grain Changer says
OHHHH YEAH! I could totally crush this whole dip one sitting. Definitely can’t stop at one chip (or one BAG of chips, for that matter), especially when it’s the vehicle for something so delicious!
One bag of chips = truth!! Right there with you. 🙂
Yeah, I can’t have just one chip 🙂 This dip looks gorgeous! Perfect for a meal! Pinned!
Thanks for the pin, girl!!
Manali @ CookWithManali says

You’re speaking my language now, Manali!!
Laura @Petite Allergy Treats says

Margarita Griffith says
Oh my gosh! This looks so delicious! I am definitely going to make this for my sister’s birthday party next week. We both grew up in California and now living in Boston, we never get enough Mexican food! Thanks for sharing! 😀
So fun! You will definitely have to let me know how your dip turns out, Margarita! 🙂
This is the guacamole mother lode! I make guac all the time and load it up with toppings, but layering is such an awesome idea. I love this Sarah, and it looks like dinner to me!
Guacamole mother lode. Haha! I love it!! Thanks Marcie!
