American Flag Layered Dip - a Mexican dip with layers of refried beans, taco seasoning, sour cream, guacamole, salsa topped with cheese, tomatoes and black olives. Perfect for summer patriotic festivities with family and friends.
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!
