My family found this in one of the Southern Living Annual Cookbooks from the 80s. It has a little different flavor from the usual, delicious!

This was a very good dip. I added a pound of cooked extra lean ground beef and layered it over the mixture and then layered the rest of the cheese on it. Was a little heavy on chili taste. Will make again but next time will use maybe 1/2 a package of the chili seasoning mix and increase the hot sauce some.

I made a smaller size of this for 4-5 people and it was devoured! We had other dips too, but this is really flavorful and a snap to throw together! I used the heavier end on the spicy jalepeno bean dip, a little more cheese than called for (because I forgot to reserve any for the top), and maybe a little more hot and taco sauce than called for - only because I don't always measure to a "T", but it was close. This was a KNOCK OUT dip that we will make again - it goes in a KEEPER cookbook. Thank you for posting Lawsome!!!
