Mini Mexican Layer Dip

If you’re hosting a Cinco de Mayo get-together (or even if you’re not) this is a fun, portable way to serve classic Mexican layer dip. Typically a dip like this has 7 layers, but I find it’s a bit tricky to fit that many layers in a little Mason jar, so I just add my favorites. You could easily do a refried bean layer, or even a layer of seasoned ground beef. It’s really up to you. Or you could set everything out buffet style and let everyone create their own dip. However you serve them up, these Mini Mexican Layer Dips are tasty and fun!
