It’s football season and chips and dip were always a part of my Super Bowl festivities. Over the years, I’ve had to adapt to fresher ways of eating and this dip is a way to bring in the new and celebrate the past…yummy flavors! Because there is the lack of the crunchy tortillas, I make the bacon layer extra crispy to compensate for that missed texture.
Layer 1: 1lb ground beef plus a taco seasoning packet (I used the Trader Joe’s seasoning packet), cooked **you could even experiment with your own seasonings
Layer 2: 1.5 cups green onions, chopped (maybe try a variety of onions to add flavor!)
Layer 3: 3 tomatoes, diced…then seasoned with sea salt and pepper
Layer 4: 1 cup nopolitos (tender cactus), drained and diced (don’t like nopolitos? add a layer of chopped bell peppers!)
Layer 5: 1.5 cups guacamole
Layer 6: 1, 5.75 oz can of jumbo black olives, sliced
Layer 7: 1 lb bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
Garnish (optional) with 1 bunch of chopped cilantro and juice of l lime
Layer the levels. Place a large serving spoon with appetizer.
On a separate plate, serve with Lettuce. Spoon mixture in the separate lettuce leaves like soft tacos.
