Easy 6 Layer Taco Dip Recipe

Seven ingredients make up this delicious 6-layer taco dip recipe.  Always a crowd pleaser, this is the perfect party food and can be made in small or large batches!

Sometimes it’s the simplest recipes that become the family favorites.  Years ago, my aunt starting making an incredibly tasty taco dip and she would bring it to various family birthday parties and other picnics and get-togethers. She was kind enough to share the recipe with me and it now shows up at most of our parties and picnics as Bob or I make it often.

Like I said, one of the best parts about this easy taco dip (besides the delicious taste) is that it can be made in big batches to feed a crowd! It’s also easy to make this one a day ahead of your party. I recommend adding the lettuce just before the party starts to keep it from wilting!
