Mexican Bean Dip

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Paulette

This recipe was given to me by my siser over 15 years ago, and I have many requests for it. When layered in a glass dish, it's very colorful for holiday parties. For a more casual get together with a festive look, such as a BBQ, layer it in a 10" iron skillet, and tie a bandana around the handle.
