Make this spicy Mexican dip your go-to dip for tailgate parties and casual entertaining. Just layer cream cheese, black bean dip and shredded cheese and top with your choice of onions, olives and tomatoes. Instead of layering the dip in one large serving dish, try making individual servings in clear plastic party cups.
1. Layer cream cheese, dip, and cheese in a 1-qt. serving dish. Add toppings, and serve with chips.
