Always a hit at parties, this easy-to-make dip is open to a variety of interpretations. It is also great topped with diced bell peppers, corn kernels, and shredded lettuce. Or, spread mild or hot canned diced green chiles over the beans, or sprinkle with jalapeño slices for extra heat. You can layer the ingredients in the order listed in the instructions, or you can make two sets of layers. Two layers work best in a smaller, deeper bowl. And be sure to use a clear bowl so friends and family can see all those layers!
