Mexican Layered Dip

With football season comes tailgating, and with tailgating comes the question of what to prepare that travels well, serves easy and is a crowd-pleaser.  I thought I’d post a few of my favorite tailgating recipes over the next few weeks.

This recipe is one that most people have at least one variety of.  This is my favorite because I love the addition on lime juice and fresh cilantro.  Add the toppings that will please your tailgaters!
