Chorizo Bean Dip

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. —Elaine Sweet, Dallas, Texas

    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.

    this recipe also reminds me of the 7 layer dip which calls for beans, avocado or guacamole, diced tomatoes, chopped green onions, sliced black olives, shredded cheese and sour cream. layer in any order you like and you can sub or add any addl items. eat with tortilla chips. yum

    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 ?
