The first time we ate this dip we went thru the chips like wildfire. Is a meal in itself. The bean, meat, cheese and salsa layers can be put together hours prior to cooking. Enjoy!

I followed directions and ended up with a snowy white top, but was tempted to put the very colorful red onion guacamole on top for color. This is a great, savory bean dip that would be welcome in front of any television sports event and also made a nice midweek supper for us.
Quick flavoful bean and meat dip! I will try this with black beans next time. My kids devoured this in no time, and I liked how the flavors blended together! I made for Spring PAC 2010 and this would be good for a potluck or sports party!
