I’ve been making this Mexican dip for years, ever since a childhood friend shared her recipe when we were in junior high. I really can’t get enough of this stuff! It couldn’t be any easier to make with only four ingredients, and it tastes delicious too. Sometimes I add some shredded lettuce and chopped tomato to the top for a touch of crispness, and that makes it even better.
