American Flag Layered Dip

July 4th Celebrations are not complete unless family and friends are gathered celebrating around the table. Now usually, for my family, that table is on the pool lanai as we splash around most of the day. This year we are starting the celebrations with this American Flag Layered Dip and blue tortilla chips. Our table is usually filled with festive food, like this Patriotic Cucumber Salad and Red, White and Blue drinks and dishes galore.

What is on your table? Do you do all the cooking or is it a potluck celebration?

We are truly blessed to live in the USA and we always celebrate while remembering all those who have served and sacrificed so we can live in this free country! It’s such an honor to be with my family on this day, being surrounded by loved ones.

My daughter will be home from college for the week.  There is no greater happiness than when my kids and family are all together!  Feels like my world is complete again with everyone in the nest!

    This always reminds me of summers at the pool. On rainy days we’d play Monopoly and have bean dip, guacamole, and chips. Fun times! Can’t wait to make this and eat it!

    I love layered dips and this one is brilliant! I need to head over to Brookshire’s to see if they have some red, white, and blue tortilla chips!

  3. Wow that is so clever and delicious looking. Love layered dips like these but never would have thought to make it into a flag for the fourth!

  4. Looks like you’re having the quintessential Independence party, Nikki. How wonderful to have a pool party with your family. AND how lucky to have such a scrumptious dip to enjoy =) Thank you for the recipe!

        My husband and I really enjoyed this. I made a half batch and used cherry tomatoes and monterey jack cheese.
        Super easy to assemble. The only thing I would do different is add the cheese and then add the tomatoes instead of alternating them. Thanks.

      2. Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed. When I make this regularly I usually do the cheese as a layer then chopped tomatoes on top and a sprinkle of the olives on top of that. But wanted this one to be festive for the 4th! Hope you had an amazing 4th! 🙂

      3. Thank you!! So glad you enjoyed it! When I make this normally I do just that a layer of cheese then top with chopped tomatoes & sprinkled with chopped black olives. Changed it up with the American Flag look!
