3 Layer Mexican Dip

Warm Layered Mexican Dip by My Retro Kitchen
This simple Mexican layer dip is a quick appetizer you can throw together when you have people over.  This dip is great by itself but is also a good base for adding different layers, such as refried beans, black beans, corn, onions, or queso cheese. Because this recipe calls for reduced fat cream cheese and shredded cheese, you can snack on this yummy dip without feeling too guilty. (You could even try using fat free cream cheese or reducing the amount of shredded cheese to cut the calories and fat even more.) With football season and tailgating right around the corner, this recipe will surely come in handy.

3 Layer Mexican Dip
(Serves 6-8)

1 8-ounce package light cream cheese, softened
