To make this zesty appetizer, you simply layer beans, salsa, cheese and other taco-like ingredients onto a platter, reveals Marieann Johansen of Desert Hot Springs, California "I like to call it a 'walking dip', because you can scoop some on a plate with a few tortilla chips, then take it with you as you stroll around and talk with guests," she shares.—Marieann Johansen, Desert Hot Springs, California
