THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS Linky Party #31 (Memorial Day BBQ) and Six-Layer Dip

The Theme is: Memorial Day BBQ
(What are you bringing to the Memorial Day BBQ today?)

Who doesn't love chips and dips? This is an all-time favorite for any gathering, and a Memorial Day BBQ is no different. I made this delicious dip only once before but had forgotten how good it was. A few weekends ago while we were camping I made the standard 7-layer dip with refried beans (and to be honest, I just don't like it... I can not stand cold beans, so it's totally yuck to me). When I was thinking what recipe I could share with all of you today, I remembered this one and decided to make it, photograph it and of course eat it too!
Six-Layer Dip
Kraft Food & Family

Layer 1: 1 ripe avocado mixed with 1 pkg Cream Cheese (8oz), softened
Layer 2: 1 cup sour cream mixed with 2 tbsp taco seasoning (or a little less if it's too strong)
Layer 3: Mix 3 tbsp salsa with 1 ripe avocado chopped
Layer 4: 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
Layer 5: 1 small tomato, chopped
Layer 6: 2 green onions, sliced

Layer each layer one by one in a glass pie pan. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
