With its zesty Mexican flavors and tempting toppings, this dish is the first to empty on the appetizer table. I serve it with extra-thick tortilla chips for some serious scooping.

"Best layered Mexican style dip ever! Everyone loved it. I lined each Fiesta Flat with a little bit of shredded lettuce and left out the jalapeno-stuffed olives (couldn't find at grocery store)

and it was still was delicious. The recipe is a keeper."

"Want to try this recipe. Live in South Texas. Chorizo here is in a casing and is usually taken out of casing, browned to remove all grease, drained and added to eggs to make chorizo taquitos, Is this the same "chorizo" you speak of ?"
