This 4-Layer Fiesta Dip will be the hit of your next party! Salsa, sour cream, cheese, and taco toppings are layered for the perfect dip to pair with tortilla chips!
When you’re in the mood for a snack, there isn’t anything much better than a good dip! I love all kinds of dips. Dips with crackers, dips with chips—dips, dips, dips! YUM!
My husband is the ultimate snacker and could snack the day away. So, one night when I had to make a quick run to the store, I grabbed some fiesta dip in the deli. It was so good! I thought for sure it was some secret recipe and kept picking it up each time I was at the store for about $4 for a tiny container. I decided I could make it at home for much less and started searching for the recipe but every recipe I came up with, I was sure it wasn’t it! So, I just went into the store and asked the deli clerk how to make it and THIS is the exact recipe. MUCH easier than I thought!
Just layer in salsa, sour cream mixed with taco seasoning, shredded cheese and top off with olives and green onions. OH so good! You can make a larger dish by just doubling the recipe I have below, but I like smaller portions so that it doesn’t get watery – which it tends to do overnight. But, if you don’t eat it right away and it does do that – it tastes just fine! No harm done! Just grab some chips and dig or dip in!

- Salsa – Use any kind you like, but I recommend one that’s more thick than watery.
- Sour cream
- Taco seasoning – Use store-bought seasoning or my homemade taco seasoning.
- Shredded cheddar cheese – A Mexican blend or Monterey jack works too!
- Black olives
- Green onions
How to Make 4-Layer Fiesta Dip
1. Season the Sour Cream
Combine the sour cream and taco seasoning in a small bowl and stir until it’s well incorporated.
Spread the salsa on the bottom of an 8×8-inch dish or pie plate. Top this with the seasoned sour cream, followed by the cheese, olives, and green onions.
Refrigerate for an hour before serving.
How to Store 4-Layer Fiesta Dip
This dip is best enjoyed within a day or two of assembling. Cover the dish tightly with plastic wrap or transfer leftovers to an airtight container and refrigerate.
What should I serve with 4-Layer Fiesta Dip?
Tortilla chips are the best thing to serve with 4-Layer Fiesta Dip! Make sure you buy a variety that’s thick, sturdy, and good for scooping! You could also use it for topping tacos or dipping taquitos.
Can I use ranch instead of sour cream to make Fiesta Dip?
Yes, you can use ranch instead of sour cream, but if you do, I recommend using a thick ranch dip, rather than ranch dressing. Because ranch is already seasoned, add the taco seasoning to taste to make sure it’s not too salty.
What else can I add to 4-Layer Fiesta Dip?
Chopped tomatoes or cilantro are great garnishes either in addition to or instead of the olives and green onions!
