Mexican Dip Trifle {For a Crowd}


It’s delicious, filling, simple…..and pretty. What’s not to love about this dip? Serve with homemade tortilla chips or your favorite store bought brand {here’s mine!}.  I love how this trifle bowl displays all the different layers and colors! This recipe makes enough for a crowd and is excellent to bring to potlucks and get togethers!

Don’t have a trifle? You certainly can use a 9×13 pan! Don’t be intimidated by the cost of a trifle bowl- I’ve seen them at Marcs, Big lots…and this one, from JCPenney outlet {$9).

  1. Looks delicious. Thanks for letting me know where to get a trifle. They make any dish look beautiful and fun.

  2. Love this dip! I made a similar variation for our family’s “Feliz Navidad” dinner a couple years ago. I layered it in my cake stand’s lid (turned upsidedown). It was so lovely, and so tasty! Need to make it again soon!
    God bless you this new year, Janelle. Thank you for staying committed to God and to women. You always encourage my heart to serve my family to the best of my ability, especially in the kitchen :o)
