Layered Taco Dip 

This goes under the "make for a party" category. But it comes with a warning: it's ADDICTIVE! I kid you not. If you make it for a party, be prepared for all your friends to request that you bring it to theirs. most of my party invites are contingent on me making this.

1 pkg cream cheese – softened
1 cup sour cream
½ pkg taco seasoning
around 1 ½ cup shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 small red onion, 1 bell pepper, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can black olives – chopped

With a food processor or mixer, mix cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning until well blended. Spread in a 9x13” pan. Chill in fridge for an hour. Then top with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onion, peppers, and olives. Serve with tortilla chips

Optional: chop cilantro and mix with lettuce layer
Use hot peppers
After chilling sour cream layer, spread a layer of guacamole
