Layered Taco Dip

I love furniture!  My favorite thing is to go to antique stores and consignment stores to find old furniture that has character.  Preferably the cheap kind!  I see the value in old expensive furniture, but our budget just doesn't quite match up.  I had been looking for a corner cabinet to go in our dinning room.  My mother in law found this one which was perfect!  It just needed a little touching up to update it.

Before:  ugly wood and silver hardware.

I painted the inside with the same color as our dinning room walls and spray painted the hardware with oil rubbed bronze (my new favorite can of spray paint)!

This is a typical layered dip.  It fulfills my Mexican cravings quite well.  Just try it for yourself and make it your own!

Layered Taco Dip

  • 1 can of Frito's bean dip
  • Guacamole
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • Shredded cheese (I prefer white cheddar)
  • Salsa
  • Pickled Jalapenos
  • Optional layers:  diced tomatoes, black olives, green onions
  • Serve with tortilla chips
Layer dip in ~8X8 dish.  Layer bean dip, guac, mix together next three ingredients in a separate bowl (mayo, sour cream, and taco seasoning) and add on top of guac, shredded cheese, salsa, and pickled jalapenos.  Enjoy!


  1. Wow. Great furniture indeed. Your furniture overshadowed your recipe. Well, anyway you did a great idea. Keep it up.

  2. I just found your blog while searching for a shrimp recipe (your shrimp appetizer for Super Bowl was on page 1 of my hits), plus I liked the title. While poking around here, I found THIS post, you read Young House Love??? I had to ask when I saw your "ORB" reference! If you don't, it's a blog. I will be adding you to my followers list!
