Great recipe. I did make a couple of changes. I had lean ground beef with taco seasoning for the bottom layer and I used cajan seasoning with the sour cream and mayo (both light). I also used my own recipe for the guacamole which I will be posting soon. Thanks, it was a hit with the adults at my 3 years b-day party!

Another variation of this is: using shredded lettuce for one of the layers; mixing a package of cream cheese, sour cream and taco mix for the sour cream layer. It is delicious!

This was WONDERFUL!!! My whole family loved this dip. The only thing I changed was to substitute a can of refried beans for the bean dip, and I made my own guacamole, as it is very hard to find the prepared avacado dip at a reasonable price around here. This is definitely an A+ keeper!! Thank you! ~Manda

Mmm, delicious. Just whipped this up to take to a graduation party. For the bean layer, I used fat free refried beans and doctored them up with some jalapeno and spices. For the avocado dip, I just mashed up some avocado with lime juice and spice. I didn't use quite as much mayo, I used more sour cream. I used hot taco seasoning and probably a bit more than called for. Delicious, easy. Thanks for the recipe.

I make this all the time. Girl's night, holiday snack table, parties, it's always requested. It's SO easy too. My husband likes when I use just plain smashed avocados spiked with hot salsa and lemon juice for the 2nd layer. I find that everyone loves the flavor of the taco seasoning mix with the mayo and sour cream. I usually get asked about the unique flavor.

This dip was great! The only change I made was adding a little chipotle to the sour cream to give it a little kick.

This is absolutely delicious and so easy to whip up! I think it will be my new party food! When I went to the store to find jalepeno bean dip and avocado dip I couldn't find any. I used plain bean dip (next time I may use some chopped jalapenos to turn up the heat) and guacamole (isn't that avocado dip anyway?)

This dip was a hit at my party I really love the sour cream mixed with the taco seasoning. We had lots of food at the party but there was hardly any of this dip left over. What was left we ate for breakfast!

I recently tried my own version of it without a recipe, but it ended up very close to this. I used blackbeans slightly crushed and added homemade salsa, and homemade quacamole in the layers as well as some fresh white mexican cheese. It turned out really well. Wish I would have had to go by then!

Made this for Super Bowl (sorry, thought I had already reviewed this) and it was loved by all!
