Layered Three-Bean Bean Dip
The perfect make-ahead party dip with layers of Mexican Food inspired ingredients including 3 types of beans that makes a delicious appetizer, with no cooking required.
This bean dip is a great appetizer for get-togethers especially when the attendees are hungry because with 3 different types of beans, this dip is hearty.
When I’m one of those hungry attendees I especially like it when there are appetizers that are more on the heavy side.
There’s no cooking required for this bean dip, and it can be made ahead of time too.
If making this ahead of time, just make sure to wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator so the toppings don’t dry out and they keep their beautiful colors.
Since this dip is made with so many layers of delicious ingredients, it’s best if the chips served with this dip are fairly sturdy such as Fritos, tortilla chips or pita chips.
And feel free to customize the toppings in this dip if preferred.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Refried beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, ground cumin, chili powder, pepper, sour cream, cheddar cheese, red onion, black olives, jalapeno, purple cabbage, cilantro, green onion, salsa and tomatoes
