Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • Be sure to select a salsa and guacamole that you like the taste of, as this will be the main flavor in the recipe.
  • If you would like to make the recipe spicier, you can add some extra taco seasoning or hot sauce to the refried beans.

  • Replace the refried beans with black beans for a more protein-rich dip. This substitution will provide more protein and fiber to the dip, making it a more filling and nutritious snack.
  • Replace the cream cheese with Greek yogurt for a healthier dip. This substitution will reduce the fat content of the dip while still providing a creamy texture. The yogurt will also add a boost of probiotics to the dip.

Vegetarian Variation Omit the refried beans and taco seasoning mix and replace with 2 cups of cooked black beans. Increase the guacamole to 2 containers (3 liters). Omit the black olives and replace with 2 cups of diced bell peppers.

Mexican Street Corn Salad: This Mexican-inspired side dish is the perfect accompaniment to the Layered Salsa Cups. It's a flavorful mix of sweet corn, creamy mayonnaise, tangy lime juice and spicy chili powder. The flavors complement each other nicely and provide a delicious contrast to the salsa cups.

Taco-Stuffed Peppers: These taco-stuffed peppers are a great way to add a Mexican twist to your meal. The peppers are filled with a savory mixture of ground beef, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and spices, and then topped with cheese and sour cream. The combination of flavors and textures creates a delicious dish that pairs perfectly with the Mexican Street Corn Salad.

Cut the recipe in half and made for the Superbowl. Family and friends enjoyed these, using pretzels, tortillas and bagel chips as dippers.
