“This dip is always a hit at parties. The kids like it too! It is a layered dip with tomatoes, lettuce, mexican flavoured sour cream and cheese. You can add a layer of refried beans down first if desired. Serve with corn chips. For a gluten free dip ensure the seasoning mix is gluten free or you can make your own using "Taco Seasoning Mix, Gluten Free". If you like some extra heat use some cayenne pepper with the taco seasoning mix”
