This Easy Layered Nacho Dip is a dip that my mom makes and we all go crazy for. It's super easy to make, only a few ingredients and it takes about 10 minutes to throw together!
I love it because it's easy, fast and oh so addictive! It's also the perfect game day snack, game night snack or for bringing along to a potluck.
When we're all together having a family game night and we run out of snacks, my mom will quickly throw this together.
Cold Nacho Dip
I am a melted cheese girl and LOVE nachos with melted cheese. Actually the melted cheese is probably my favorite part of nachos. So, I really didn't think I'd be a fan of this dip. But was I ever wrong! This Cold Taco Dip is totally delicious in it's own special way. Plus, you don't have to worry about heating it up. You can make it in advance, then throw it in the fridge and bring it along to a potluck or game day party!

Who needs 7 layers anyway, right?! These 4 layers are just the right amount, it takes less time to make and the flavors enhance each other, rather than competing as they do in some of the multi-layered dips I've tried. Sometimes less is more and that's definitely the case with this scrumptious dip. When my mom puts it on the table, it's gone in less time that it takes to make it!
Nacho Dip (Game Day food)
I'm not gonna lie.... I love game day food even more than I love the game, whatever game that may be. And I believe that's probably the case with more people than would admit. Nacho Dip is a great contribution to the game day menu because it is a breeze to throw together and you really can't go wrong with it. This dip is also vegetarian so you satisfy those that don't eat meat and it's gluten-free (you just have to make sure you find a gluten-free nacho/chips to serve it with.)
Superbowl is coming and hockey season is in full swing, so there are lots of opportunities to make this nacho dip! But I truly love it anytime - we'll make it for our Friday night movie night or while we're having a family night playing board games or just hanging out. And it's great for taking along to a potluck! I use a 9X13 glass pan with a lid so it's very portable!

This is awesome. I made a layered dip years ago and never posted it. Four layers is definitely enough to make this a super addictive dip.
This looks like a yummy dip, and four layers are definitely enough. This is on the menu for our next gathering, thanks, Terri!
Thanks, Colleen. I hope you enjoy it
This is such a delicious dish! I love when other people serve something similar, but I've never made it myself. Your recipe looks very doable. Thank you for a simplified version!
Yes, it's sooo easy to make, Cathy!

I would seriously just eat this whole dip for dinner if it was acceptable, haha! Those layers look so delicious. Pinning for any upcoming parties I might have!
Perfectly acceptable, Katherine, haha!
I'm 73 years old and quite a GREAT COOK, FIXER, If I do say so myself. I was tempted to spread refried beans on the bottom, but I didn't. I did HOWEVER slice some black olives in half and placed on top of cheese..for flavor and color. Eating it witj Detrout Made fresh chips I got at Krogets. This is YUMMO. LOL
I’m so glad you loved it! And the black olives are a good idea!
My kids love this dip. I just mix taco seasoning to the cream cheese/sour cream layer and use some lettuce to hide the green onions from my picky eaters.
Glad to hear they love it, Shannon! Taco seasoning is a great idea 🙂
