Here are easy instructions on how to make your own Creepy Halloween Mexican Layered Dip:
In a bowl, mix refried beans and taco dip. Then spread on your serving dish.
Next, in a mixing bowl, combine the sour cream and mayonnaise. Set aside 1/2 cup of sour cream mixture for the web, then spread remaining mixture over beans.
Next, spread picante or salsa over the sour cream layer.
Next spread 4oz of freshly shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, then 8oz of freshly shredded Cheddar Cheese.
Next, in a bowl, mix together avocado, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Then spread over cheese layer.
Take your remaining sour cream mixture and put in a cake decorating tool to form your web. Cut black olive in half. Use this half of the olive for spider body. Take another olive and cut it long ways. Cut each half in threes to make the spider’s leg. Then assemble spider on web. Finally, take all your favorite toppings and layer them around the web. Top the toppings with remaining Monterey Jack Cheese.
